Gaming PC build Radeon R9 290 PowerColor PCS+ Edition, Core i5-4440 3.1GHz, 8GB performance review

This Radeon R9 290 PowerColor PCS+ Edition graphics card, along with a Core i5-4440 3.1GHz can run 44 of the top 1000 PC games released. A gaming PC like this has a Core i5-4440 3.1GHz weak point. If this component was upgraded then the system could play up to 444 games from the 1000 most demanding games of today.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, we put the 1440p screen resolution as the better choice for the Radeon R9 290 PowerColor PCS+ Edition here. But if you are looking for strong FPS at the top end of graphics quality then you would be aiming for 1080p Ultra or 1080p High. Here are some Low Vs Ultra frame rates that we think you should consider. 1080p High graphics setting gets 62 FPS and Ultra is 45 FPS. Then moving on to the 1440p FPS with Low setting: 90 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 71 FPS, 1440p High setting: 48 FPS, 1440p Ultra setting: 34 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Halo: Reach - In summary, the performance delivered by this graphics card easily overpowers that needed by Halo: Reach. We expect to get a very strong frame rate of 142 FPS at 1080p Ultra, but would advise moving up to 1440p Ultra to get 108 frames per second or even 65 FPS at 4K Ultra as the Radeon R9 290 PowerColor PCS+ Edition can handle this. It just comes down to your preferred resolution then tweak your graphics settings to deliver the desired effects, without a care for performance.

3rd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, a Radeon R9 290 PowerColor PCS+ Edition graphics card will struggle at desktop resolutions, but when thinking of Low vs Ultra graphics settings, it could pass at Medium settings on a small laptop screen.
