Problems with SWTOR and Radeon 6870 after upgrade from Win7 to Win8

Please help me.

I had a Radeon 6870 and 8gb of ram with Windows 7 and was playing Swtor at almost maxed out settings with no problems at all.

Three days ago I decided to add 8gb of ram (of same type and manufacturer) and convert to windows 8. All of my other games work flawlessly, but swtor is basically unplayable now. In battlegrounds I have extreme chop, frame rate drops down to super slow during other times. I have tried a variety of graphic settings, low to high, no gpu accell vs gpu accell, reinstalled drivers, got new drivers. (The AMD driver utility says I dont need any new drivers)....Nothing seems to work. Please help me if you have had any successes or know of any patches I need to apply.

Thank you,
