PC System Analysis For Windows 10 Requirements
The best chance at playing Windows 10 at recommended sys specs on a 1920x1080 screen resolution will be if your PC has at least the GeForce GT 230/Radeon HD 4650 graphics card. The CPU required to meet recommended requirements is either an AMD Athlon 64 3200+ or Intel Pentium Dual Core E2180 2.0GHz processor. This type of gaming rig will deliver you around the 60 Frames per second. 2 GB will also be needed to achieve the Windows 10 rec specs and get 60FPS. Make sure your GPU can run DirectX 9 or Windows 10 won’t run. We suggest a 11 year old PC to play smoothly.

The first time I hit the power button it just hangs at the Windows icon (without any loading dots) and then it will simply turn off. When I turn it back on it boots successfully (as soon as the loading dots show I know it's going to work).
Can someone pls help me ?

Personally on my newly built pc, I really like windows 10 it has some cool features and it integrates really nicely with my xbox one and other devices has Directx12, It looks nice it does the job. On the other hand i did have the free upgrade on my previous system, it was a dell xps I7 quad core nvidia 550m graphics, was a great laptop and it went from running everything (win7) to running nothing (win10). Win 10 Great on new build horrible on older system upgrade

Windows 10 actually makes my graphics card an 8.6 from an 8.5 for Desktop graphics performance and a 9.9 from an 8.5 for 3d business and gaming graphics performance. I am get a 7fps increase in the Witcher 3 on high/ultra settings. From 55fps to 62fps it's awesome. My only hang up was media center being gone. Now I have to use WinTV 8 and it sucks but win 10 doesn't.
