need help buying a new monitor

by apple25 / December 31, 2009 11:02 PM PST

Hi All,
I recently bought a good digital SLR. then realized I needed to take a course in Photoshop. While taking the course I noted the MAC monitors in school have much better resolution and color separation than the 20? monitor that came w/ my pc.
I don?t want to buy a MAC so I figured I could upgrade my screen and then buy a spyder to calibrate it.
I am looking for a good 24? to 27? unit that is not in the nosebleed price range (over 1500$)
The specs on the machine are; 2.4 GHz quad core w/ 3 gigs of memory and an Nvidia Geforce 8600 GT card. The machine has no problem handling Photoshop CS4
Any help can get w/ this decision would be great.

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?
