Gaming computer

by Nathan23ftw / November 17, 2011 2:23 AM PST

HI everyone, i saw this website on the internet and i snooped around and saw really good reviews for this website.

I am trying to build a Gaming Computer but im getting stuck on a few things.

So far, I have this tower i plan on purchasing http://www.amazon.com/Antec-Dark-Fleet-DF-85-Gaming/dp/B003JH7MIO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1321493527&sr=8-1

And for the motherboard i wish to purchase a AMD mother board. Im not sure which MB would be best and which processor would be compatible.. I currently plan to put in a Corsair 8 GB for my ram.
I also need help on which Graphic card would be good and compatible and be able to play every game on the highest settings. I have a ASUS 23" HDMI monitor.
I also want to put in a Quad core system instead of Dual.

Im not really on a budget but i would like to keep it under 700 if possible.

Thank you in advance.

Just basic advise

Here's what I offer, goto any gaming PC providing vendor and see what they offer. Build a similar one from your own resources and have at it. Also, checking websites that cater to modding or gaming in general offer what's been done and more importantly offer links and solid advise from those that already been there.

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?
