Yes from their news

Yes i'll better stay same version as python.
Im just asking as my new laptop has win8 on that and even though i got a linux partition on that, id rather not install a win7 partition too :D. I'll give it a try what the hek. maybe there is a win7 compability mode or win7image option inside win 7 anyway.

I know i cant expect a guide how to as everything is quite new here, but .. im just searching for some guidelines here. I have download and installed already "PyQt4-4.10-gpl-Py3.3-Qt5.0.1-x32-2.exe	Windows 32 bit installer" out from this website http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/software/pyqt/download , in my start menu there is a new folder named "PyQt GPL v4.10 for Python v3.3 (x32)" but when i run Designer and go to about tab it only says:
Qt Assistant
Version 5.0.1
Copyright (C) 2012 Digia Plc and/or its subsidiary(-ies).

Would that be normal? Shouldn't i also see somewhere anything about PyQt.. :P

And last but not least.. 
ive noticed in the Riverbank's website this notice "Before you can build PyQt you must have already built and installed SIP"

I havent done that..

What exactly will happend now, that i have not installed that yet. What would the conflict be (im asking more so that i can understand how this helps).

Thx 4 your time guys just by reading this!
