There are no compatibility issues with windows 8. Just because a PC runs windows 8 though does NOT mean it's suitable for PCSX2 however. A lot of low end PCs run windows 7 or 8... OS themselves are not as big of resource hogs as they once were.

To expand on this point of mine, OSes haven't become MORE resource intensive, at least not to the point that they used to with each generation.

The only tangible benefit for PCSX2 from winXP is the use of directx10 or 11 based on your GPU hardware. If you haven't updated your PC since you got it, that won't be a factor either.
