Windows 10 gaming performance problem

Hi everyone,
Since I updated my computer to Windows 10, I can't play games as I used in the past with Windows 8.1
It is a little weird because Windows 10 performance overall is very very good. But when it comes to playing games, lag spikers are common and I can't play games at the same graphics detail level as I used with Windows 8.1

I have read a LOT of threads about possible solutions. Some claims that more RAM is needed. Some others that it may be related to graphics card drivers suitability to this operating system. I am inclined to the last option.
I have an MSI 60 2PC Apache. Some relevant specs:

Intel Core i7 4720HQ @ 2.60GHz
8,00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M
For example, I used to play Dead By Daylight at the high-level graphic detail in Windows 8.1. According to its requirements, I should run it without any problem. In Windows 8.1 it worked like charm. But when I say "like charm" I really mean it. Now I have to set graphics details to LOW if I want to make it playable. It is not something like "oh, yeah, it's a bit slower". Not at all, the game performance really sucks and it really impresses me how much gaming quality has been decreased.

I googled your gaming laptop model recently and on the msi website for your laptop, there are no drivers for windows 10.
Have you contacted MSI to see if your laptop support Windows 10? Not all Windows 8.1 will run Windows 10 operating system.

you know you need legacy mod to run older games in Windows 10?

also Network issues offen need the old net2 or net3 files... DragonAge is a good example as the offical mod installer you get with the game needs these files to run on Windows 10

actual Gpu drivers are not normally an issue unless you allow Microsoft updates to manage your Gpu i.e, if the device is seen as a "default card" in your hardware list then you get problems
