Okay guys here my list

Crysis 2 on steam Works but is stuck in windowed mode and i cant change the res it says something like unspecified if you change the res in the game

Battlefield bad company 2 works great but it keeps switching into windowed mode whenever i move my mouse to the bottom left of the screen....i think the windows botton is the problem

Bioshock doesnt work....it start but when u go to new game and i starts to load the game freezes and i have to restart my comp

Company of Heroes doesnt work either...it starts but i only hear sound and the screen is blank and it for some reason is minimized when the game lauches

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is a no go it wont let me change my resolution and the game just closes if i try to start a game

All my games are on steam so ive verified the game cache on all of them and there all good
ive tryed taking off crossfire but doesnt help
manualy launching the games in compatibility mode and no luck lol
tried using the windows 7 ccc driver and the windows 8 drivers and i get the same problem (i dont like using the windows 8 one cause i cant use ccc with it)


*update i disabled the new windows button and got the old style back so now when i hover over the start menu nothing happens like show time and stuff and now it doesnt make BFBC 2 go into windowed mode anymore :)

Dirt 3 Doesn't launch at all from steam, tried running in compatability mode for 7, nothing, tried running for vista, nothing, tried XP, nothing, guess it just doesn't work.

Edit: Nevermind, it's something to do with my install, no games launch from the desktop on my system with Nvidia 280.26 drivers :(

Hmmm I seen that The Sims 3 was listed (is huge The Sims fan), That'd be cool if Flight Simulator X still works for Win 8, I've really wanted to invest in a fight stick.

Dota 2 Works great, but has the same issue other full screen games have with the metro snap on the left screen and where if you move the mouse to the bottom left the game minimizes.....

I will download and test here.

An illicit, high-stakes race across the country. The only way to get your life back is to be the first from San Francisco to New
York. No speed limits. No rules. No allies. All you have are your driving skills and sheer determination as you battle hundreds of the world\'s most notorious drivers on the country\'s most dangerous roads. In Need for Speed The Run, you\'ll weave through dense urban centers, rocket down icy mountain passes and navigate narrow canyons at breakneck speeds, all the while evading a relentless police force prepared - and willing - to use lethal force to take you down.

~edit~

It's a huge 15GB download. Will take some time to complete @ 74 KB/s :(
