Gaming PC build Radeon R9 390X MSI Gaming 8GB Edition, Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz, 16GB performance review

When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz CPU with a Radeon R9 390X MSI Gaming 8GB Edition GPU and 16GB RAM is more powerful than 232 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 587 games at recommended requirement.

This PC’s performance can be benchmarked against todays most popular game, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, we feel that the Radeon R9 390X MSI Gaming 8GB Edition looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Red Dead Redemption 2 experience it will generate 97 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 76 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 51 FPS when played at High settings and down to 37 FPS when turned up to Ultra on 1440p. You might still be looking for 1080p though to get some higher smoother FPS, where you could get 48 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, we feel that the Radeon R9 390X MSI Gaming 8GB Edition looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Call of Duty: Modern Warfare experience it will generate 97 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 76 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 51 FPS when played at High settings and down to 37 FPS when turned up to Ultra on 1440p. You might still be looking for 1080p though to get some higher smoother FPS, where you could get 48 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.

3rd most popular game: Halo: Reach - To summarise, this is an easy one, the Radeon R9 390X MSI Gaming 8GB Edition solution can play Halo: Reach at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 69 frame rate, whereby we see 115 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 151 frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $2.77, 1440p costs $3.64 and 4K costs $6.07.
