I bought a Dell Dimension 4700
For $817

For my buck this is what I got.

Intel P4 with HT 3.0 GHZ
512 MB RAM upto 4GB
160 Sata hard drive
128 MB video card
DVD Burner with double layer +- RW (Philips brand)
17" LCD monitor

If your have any type of pc knowledge than this is a great buy. Some are scared of tech support being based in India. The PC worked great out of the box. Pleanty of USB ports and two PCI slots, three if you remove the modem card.

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?
