Hey guys. I have had this computer for about 3 years now and i think its starting to reach its climax. Or at least when I'm playing DayZ :D. So i need some advice. Theys are my specs:

Intel Core 2 quad CPU q8200 @2.33Ghz 2.34GHz 64bit obviously Silly
NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT

If you need anything else just ask. I'm running on 2 Screens. A 1920x1080 16:9 acer and a 1440x900 Samsung
The main problem I'm having is just a little lag in my computer. And when i play DayZ my video card heats up to 70-75. And if you know anything about DayZ when I"m in the city i get about 10 fps. So i need to know.

Thanks alot for your help. Sorry if this i terribly written i have terrible English.

Should i upgrade my video card?
Should i start overclocking?
Should i just get a new computer altogether?
Or something completely different, Like rocket still a lot of work on his hands.

If you have 125 bucks......I'd shop for a Hd7770 gpu.
That should give you a nice bump.

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?
