regarding your questionn "if another version runs better."
basically another version will run good as well. maybe you can go better performance if you have 64-bit OS and use 64-bit MS Office .
With newer MS Office you will also get new features which every new MS Office release had.

Office 2007 is supposed to run as noted above. However, I use Office 2013 on my Windows 8.1 Pro laptop.

At this point, and until ALL surrounding software is 64-bit, Microsoft does not recommend 64-bit Office.  I use Office 2013 32-bit on my 64-bit machine and it works very well.

So I recommend moving on to a newer version of Office. Subscription has become a good way of buying Office for individuals.
