JK90, I have boot camp on my Mountain Lion late-2008 unibody running 64 bit Windows 8, with a brand new ssd and 8gigs of ram. Although my scenario is officially unsupported, it works great. My 4+ yr old mac is the best PC I've ever owned :-)
There are a number of complications during and after installation, and you need to do a lot of research to make sure you get it right. I worked long and hard to get everything running just right.
Even after Windows was installed I had even more trouble with my drivers, and getting especially getting the trackpad to work properly, so I needed to use a regular mouse until I could get the trackpad on.
Also check out trackpad++, I've been using it for years now, it upgrades the trackpad drivers from apple and makes using Windows much nicer.
