I need help buying a new motherboard! Come help me!

by silentbob / September 18, 2005 12:40 AM PDT

Alright well I'm buying myself a new computer and i'm wondering which motherboard woould be good down the road and just overall is a good reliable motherboard. Here's what i'm looking at:

Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe
Asus A8V-E SE Socket 939
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum Socket 939

I'm not too sure if I should go with SLi support or save some cash and put that towards a better single video card (presently i'm planning to get 2 geforce 6600 256MB). Any help would be appreciated.

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?
