Will my system work with these graphics cards?

by Robie7642003 / July 22, 2013 5:22 AM PDT

I'm about to install a Radeon 7770 graphics card. (Considering GTX 650 Ti, but there is a huge cost difference now.)

Current build is

AMD A6-3500 Llano 2.1GHz
MSI A55M-P33 FM1 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
850 Power supply (I know it's a lot--what was available on quick notice)
4 GB memory

I'm wondering if the CPU is good enough for gaming, or will I need to upgrade the CPU. Games are

Guild Wars 2
Fallout 3
Chivalry Midieval Warfare

Work? Should be yes.

But if you read the usual CPU reviews the A6 is a little weak. Even the A10 comes up short against the usual i5 but work? Should work.

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?
