R9 280X showing some problems... Need help!

First of all, I'd like to tell that my OS is Windows 8, so if this issue is on Windows 8 or something else than the Graphics Card, tell me please.

I have an AMD R9 280X, but it is not compatible to many games. For example, when I try to play Crysis or Crysis Warhead, the game crashes, and when I try to play Sniper: Ghost Warrior, the screen is black and white and upside down. I already saw benchmarks tests on Crysis and Crysis Warhead on R9 280X, so, is it Windows 8 that is not actually compatible to both? I already played Crysis Warhead on a laptop with Windows 8, but it's graphics card was an onboard one...
Do you guys think I should wait for the next drivers and see if they can solve it, or do I change for a GTX 770 for example?

Crysis and Crysis warhead are more optimized for Nvidia cards. There are some games also optimized for AMD cards. I don't think that AMD will optimize either game in their new drivers as those games are really old.
But, did your card come pre-overclocked? If so, try lowering the voltages to the reference 280X.

Thanks mate. But the thing is,that Crysis frickin doesnt even open (Crysis Warhead now opens, but I already played it for a really long time and I prefer Crysis 1 too, as its more open world). Also, I played these 3 games on another AMD VGA (a 6670M) and they run fine (at low-medium settings, of course), however, the OS I was using was Windows 7. So that's pretty stupid for an older VGA to support a game that a new one doesnt...
Basically, these games are either incompatible to windows 8 + my VGA or just my VGA...
