According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a FX-6300 processor, a Radeon R9 280X Sapphire Vapor-X 3GB OC Edition graphics card and 8GB RAM is better performing than 0 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the FX-6300 as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 48 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how this PC performs with a popular game like Cyberpunk 2077. To summarise, the Radeon R9 280X Sapphire Vapor-X 3GB OC Edition fails to meet the very basic performance needs of the Cyberpunk 2077

2nd most popular game: Microsoft Flight Simulator - In summary, while looking at Low vs Ultra settings this Radeon R9 280X Sapphire Vapor-X 3GB OC Edition should only play Microsoft Flight Simulator on a small laptop screen and probably at less than High settings.

3rd most popular game: Horizon: Zero Dawn - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Horizon: Zero Dawn in 1440p resolution with the Radeon R9 280X Sapphire Vapor-X 3GB OC Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 79 FPS, Medium setting: 62 FPS, High setting: 42 FPS, Ultra setting: 30 FPS.
