Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1060 3GB, Core i7-3770K 4-Core 3.5GHz, 20GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i7-3770K 4-Core 3.5GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 1060 3GB graphics card and 20GB RAM is better performing than 587 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 657 at recommended requirement.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 45 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Red Dead Redemption 2 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 91 FPS or the Medium returning 71 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 48 FPS and then Ultra gets 34 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 110 FPS, Medium setting: 86 FPS, High setting: 58 FPS, Ultra setting: 42 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Halo: Reach - In summary, if you are looking to play Halo: Reach in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The GeForce GTX 1060 3GB can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 132 frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 101 FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 60 FPS in Ultra as well.
