Advice for new computer built

by mr_poulet / December 30, 2015 8:04 AM PST


My name is Marc and I am building my first computer. I bought all the pieces and a friend gave me a graphic card and I was wondering if this graphic card is worth it to game in 1080p. The graphic card is a GTX770 2go DDR5.
Here a list of my build: i7 4790k, rip jaw 2x8go 1600ghz, mobo msi z97 gaming m5, evga 750W 80 gold plus, corsair hydro series h80i gt, with a ssd kingston of 120go and a seagate hdd 1to, i bought 2 additionnals fans for my case (antec gx500 window). is the gtx770 still good for todays game like fallout or its better to change it for a gtx 960 or 970? cant wait to receive all my pieces!

thanks for your help!!!

Since the gpu is free give it a test run.
The gtx 770 is not a bad card but it's a power hog.
If you want to move above that card your looking at a gtx 970 or greater.

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?
