    Windows 8 not working with GTX 560 Ti

    I just installed Windows 8 Pro through the upgrade download. I kept getting BSOD when windows 8 would boot for the first time and it kept sending me back to windows 7 pro. I kept getting some system service exception error, which i found out was the graphics (Nvidia GTX 560 Ti) so i took it out and the install went just fine. Once windows 8 was installed i shutdown, out in the graphics card, booted and got the same error. I setup the minidump thing and it keeps telling the error is being caused by nvlddmkm.sys which is a Nvidia driver. I am able to boot with the card in sometimes but it runs on some simple VGA driver even though i have it connected through DVI, so once i got it in and booted i installed the latest drivers for windows 8, no luck. Then i installed an even newer one that was a beta and still no luck, then i tried installing the driver from windows 8 release preview that said it supported some new WDDM technology and that failed too! For now i am running of the integrated intel hd 3000 graphics. Please help! i'll try to upload the minidumps.

    Intel core i7 2600k
    nvidia gtx 560 ti
    8gb of 1333mhz microcenter ram
    asus p8z68-v mobo
    cooler master 600w psu
    hitachi hard drive 500gb

    (P.s. i've run memtest without any probs so i don't think it is my ram)

    Latest Nvidia drivers installed?

    Check in the BIOS settings regarding GPU????

    I installed the latest drivers but got the same error. Right now I have my BIOS set to use the integrated graphics in my CPU as the display, and I get no bsod but if I use the card as the primary output it bsods. Besides that I have all the same settings I had before I upgraded to Windows 8. I have been playing around with the settings as well but nothing worked.
