Hey

I have 1 gt 640 and i play cod4 and looking into upgrading my video. What would be better?

How fast would 2 dual Nvidia gt 640 vs 1 Nvidia gtx 660 ti be?

I run a ok 250fps on my 1 gt 640 now but with a super low config file and rez set to 1440.

Go with the gtx

That's a big jump.
That parallel stuff....2xgt.....might turn out to be a big headache.

Make sure you have a psu that can handle that card.

I find those with dual and more cards to be too hard to support. Or rather the problems often mean we have to re-vamp the machine to get it to work as well as they expected. A single card is the easy path. Your choice but if you go with dual cards, be sure you have support on hand and a thick wallet.

I cannot recommend Dual Card in this case

"Dual cards" has always been a problem in the long run. To me, dual worked well only during the demo days (at a computer show in my land). Thereafter, it was one problem after another. Had to go back to single card coz support for dual wasn't free a-tall. Suit yourself.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
