Clarification Request
Actually, you mean "which is best"
by Steven Haninger / April 2, 2015 8:46 AM PDT

but any answer would be relative to the purpose that needs to be served. All of these are "end of life" products but you can probably drop the dual core and make lowest price the determining factor between the other two. Either of those might make reasonable Linux machines.

usage wise, it's a draw. Test wise, the Q8400 win by a hair.

You can compare the CPUs on CPUBOSS to declare a winner. My bet is the 9300 may win.

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?
