Which Graphics Card?

by darkside 94 / May 3, 2007 9:20 AM PDT

I am looking into a new high performance pc.

Should I get a NVIDIA GeForce 8800GTS 320MB or an ATI Radeon X1950 512MB. I am really looking forward to playing next gen games and want the best performance for the cost. I am currently leaning toward the 8800GTS for its DX10 capabilities. This is the computer I am getting to back up the processor.

Genuine Windows Vista? Home Premium (32-bit)
Intel

with its dx 10 support, it is definitely the better choice. however, ati will release its dx 10 GPUs in a couple of weeks (mid-to-late may). so if you can wait till then, there may be better choice in the $300 price range.

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?
