Lower resolution and/or graphics quality? Perhaps they are set too high for you system. I've had no issues gaming on W8 at all. Go to canirunit.com and see what it says.

Also, do you have any mods installed for that game? If so, you will have to disable/enable one at a time to determine which mod is causing the crash (at least from my experience with Skyrim)

When you say the computer crashes you mean the blue screen appears and says uh oh there was a problem? Does the white screen occur in only a couple of games and blue screen on the rest?

Couple of items that really shout out to me from the start:

Hardware problems:
-Most likely GPU related, could even be a software related gpu problem.
-Motherboard going bad, blue screens are typical when the motherboard is starting to die.

Do you OC on games? It's possible your case is getting extreme heat levels.I know my AMD gpu driver has a fan controller and it was at first before a hotfix spinning a lot faster than it should had.

A couple of thoughts here:

-check to make sure your psu is adequate for your system

Get a gpu tester and also try underclocking it a tad it's possible your card can't handle it.
