Resolved Question

This a good set up?

by CallumToffee / January 23, 2015 3:19 AM PST

Intel i7 4790 3.6ghz
Asus z87m-plus xfire
16gb kingston dual 1600 mix 8 x 2
4 GB nvidia geforce gtx 970
120gb kingston v300 ssd

I also went with a wireless card
Dual band 450mbps

I haven't ordered the pc yet but this was recommended for my budget.. The pc will be used for editing and uploading videos to youtube for an elgato hd60 which will record the ps4.
Will this set up be worth the £1000

That 120GB SSD is too small and would stress a newbie PC Windows user.

There's other issues such as getting Windows installed proper but as a newbie you have that done. Be sure they supply an install procedure, media, license and such.

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?
