Q: Should I wait to buy a new PC or GPU?
A: No – if you buy a PC with supported graphics hardware (over 80% of gamer PCs currently being sold), you’ll be able to enjoy all the power of DirectX 12 games as soon as they are available.

Does not specify whether they are going to force you to upgrade to Win8 in order to use it.. I suspect they will, given recent history

Dude. You know nothing of Microsoft. This won't be ready until 2015. They're not going to force people to buy Win8. They're going to re-skin Win8 and call it Win9, make DX12 a Win9 exclusive, and sell THAT to people.
