Do you already own the EVGA MB ?

Looks like there are probably better choices for MBs.

but how hard would it be to upgrade my MB to a crossfire MB or is it not even worth it cause to me it seems like ATI is winning highest FPS in every bechmark now days plus with AA and AF on.

Thanks

It will not be very difficult to upgrade since you already have the other components for eVGA board. You will just need to remove the parts on your old board and put it on CrossFire board. There may be a few complications thought as Windows is very sketchy with motherboard upgrades, so if you do decide to upgrade the motherboard, back up your files and prepare to reinstall Windows if needed.

I'm not really sure about your second statement as you states its not worth upgrade because ATI is winning.

What card do you have right now? Also you should consider the fact that the most your eyes can perceive is 30fps, so anything higher will not make a difference.

on the second part of that i forgot to put a question mark after is it worth it but anyways right now i have one 6800GT. Im still not really sure on what to do since now i hear the 7900 GTX is going to bet all that ATI has. Do you think it would be smarter to wait till march or whatever and pick 2 of those up or just get a new crossfire MB and 2 1900s.

Thanks

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?
