Radeon X1950 Pro =GeForce?????

by sgwizzy / December 18, 2007 11:40 PM PST

So a few months ago I upgraded my RAM to 3GB, my power supply to 600w, and put in a Diamond Viper Radeon X1950 Pro (PCI-e, 512MB) card.

My problem is that there are games that I would like to buy...(ie: Gears of War, Crysis, BioShock etc...) however the box requirements list graphics cards for NVIDIA GeForce etc...and that's not what I have... so does anyone know what NVIDIA cards are = to what I have?

Mine does support Direct X 9.0 and I think even 10....

I've wanted to play Gears & Bioshock since I saw it on the X-box... but I play PS3... I figured it would come out on the PC eventually.... now if I can get my controller to work with it.

I assuming that World Conflict will also be ok then...

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?
