PLEASE tell me what to UPGRADE!

by Xenon-128 / August 16, 2015 6:31 PM PDT

I only have a 4k ViewSonick VP2770-LED Professional Calibrated monitor w/ an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 GPU, 16 GB of RAM (forgot what type.) A Solid-State-Drive, w/ a 1TB HHD as a backup, a 300GB/s network card, and am looking for ANYTHING that you can think of that can upgrade my experience....

I can get 3 titan x's for the price of 2 lower end gpus.

I know that sounds laughable but it's not... my friend has a lot of crap he bought and can't afford and I've helped him out with rent and food for along time so he's willing to have a fire sale on some of his stuff... I still don't know if I want to, 3 titan x's would require more power and possibly other things I'm unaware of.

The link is an example to see what it takes to 4K

And look at the results. Under 30 FPS on those games. I expected better.

However there is that METAL system coming out soon enough (Apple) and Microsoft's return punch up is version 12.

You could try running at 1080 and let the display upscale if the lag isn't bad.

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?
