Varies too much according to location.

My nod is the usual i7 (doesn't need to be the latest or fastest) then the GTX 980 GPU. has many lists for CPU, GPU, Motherboards.

i7 is a must but what about 980

I definitely agree that i7 is a must but i have another question for you.

In this link there are possible 980 options. Which one would you recommend me?

Sorry no.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / December 2, 2015 8:02 AM PST,3107-5.html notes another 980 but if you want to compare 980's then you find reviews and try to divine if there is a difference. For me I do that when I want to buy but find many times that the user reviews sway me more than the written reviews. That is if some users complain of excessive fan noise I go back and check out that.

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?
