Recommend a $200 graphics card

by SteveG700 / August 12, 2010 6:40 AM PDT

I've got a six-core i7 chipset and 12GB of RAM, but only a 1GB 5570 graphics card. The PSU is 460 watts.

My budget is around $200.

What do you want from your graphics device that you

don't get now? I ask because I suspect you can begin taxing that PS in hurry with power hungry graphics card in your current system. You may be thin already.

Well, we've got a couple of strategy games in 2010 and I want things to look good.

I've been looking at the 460 and the 5770.

Don't we get a new batch of cards in the fall?

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?
