( I would like to use these to connect the Desktop to my currect Mintor with built in speakers through the 'audio in' port thing)

What do you guys think?
<div>I will use this as a 'hybrid' combo as a workstation and web surfer (will it handle 720 and 1080p HD video?) with tasks such as 3D modelling,rendering video,photo and Audio editing .

What should I expect and what can I do with these specs and what I might struggle with?

Also will all these work together and will I need extra stuff to get things working?

e.g.(A wirelesss adaptor or is included with the Mobo?)

It's one of the usual desktop builds but no gamer. It will do 1080p with ease, 3D modeling may hit a pause here and there but overall it should work.

The area I seem folk struggle with is not so much installing Windows but getting the post install work done. Be sure to make an install plan cheat sheet.

Thanks for replying and giving your feedback and advice. So HD video is no problem is internet and sound integrated on the motherboard? And anything else should I know?

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?
