Choosing a low buget GPU

by theduster124 / October 11, 2013 6:46 AM PDT

My GTX480 has recently passed on ( Rip ). However, I need to get my PC up and running pretty soon. I don't really need an upgrade but I need something able to run at the same speeds or better than that of the 480. I do game and do some rendering.

The catch: I need it for 200 or less.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I doubt your going to get any better than that card at the 200 buck area.

Looks like equal to or slightly better than the 480.

If you have more bucks then the mix changes.

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?
