I previously had a Gaming PC with the following specs:
Graphics Card: Gtx 550 ti
Cpu: Amd Fx 6-core 6120
Operating System: Windows Home Premium.

My new PC has the following specs:
Graphics Card: Gtx 660 (overclocked by 78mhz)
Cpu: Amd 8-Core
Operating System: Windows 8
(This P.C runs all the games on my P.C at highest settings, some games include Battlefield 3 and 4)
The problem/test games are:
Scp Containment Breach:
http://www.scpcbgame.com/
(This Game runs on the Blitz3d engine if that means anything)

and Detonate: http://www.wildebeestgames.com/detonate.htm

On my older computer these both Ran fine on (FULLSCREEN) mode.
Now on my new PC i have to run these both in windowed mode to get at least 30fps.

Steps i have taken:
1. Re installed both games (no help)
2. ran program compatibility troubleshooter and set it to windows 7 on both (minor fps gain)
3. Removed Graphics drivers and re installed from safe mode.(no help)
4. Went to Nvidia Control Panel-Advance and changed game settings there(no help)

Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated as this PC definitely should run this games fine.

Thank you for the reply, is there any way for me to downgrade since I am not a windows 8 pro user and my P.C came with windows 8?

If i can't downgrade... are there any tweaks for windows I can apply to make the game run smoother like it did on Windows 7?

Please don't lie to users. Windows 8 is great even for gaming I saw fps jumps going from 7 to 8. However some games struggle with compatibility that's probably your issue.

I saw benchmarks that showed windows 8 hurt performance in some games.
W8 was a regression my M$ plain and simple

games will never be that compitable for 8 as they are for 7
i believe win 9 willl be better for gaming but it will be realesed after an year
