better graphics card

See link: memory up grade

How do the two compare for future up grades? CPU, PCI, PCIe slots, etc? See Mother Board specifications.

Does the 1st model your looking at have a physics card? If so I might rethink my choice.

definitely the gateway

gateway vs dell
geforce 8800GTS vs 8600GTS: 8800GTS is almost 2x faster
e6600 2.4ghz quad core vs e6750 2.66ghz dual core: push in most games, quad core will help cutting edge games like crysis
3GB RAM vs 2GB RAM: more is better
x-fi audio vs built-in audio: higher fps, higher eax implementation
700w power supply vs 400w power supply: bigger is better for expansion

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?
