Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 970 EVGA SSC ACX+ 2.0 4GB Edition, FX-8350, 16GB performance review

This gaming PC performance puts its 3 key components (16GB, FX-8350, GeForce GTX 970 EVGA SSC ACX+ 2.0 4GB Edition) as better than 229 games from the top 1000 most demanding games of today. The hardware weak point in this gaming pc is FX-8350. If this bottleneck was upgraded, then the number of games (from the top 1000 games list) it could run would increase to 649 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Halo: Reach. To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA SSC ACX+ 2.0 4GB Edition card will play Halo: Reach at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 62 frame rate, 1440p can deliver 104 FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 137 frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, go with a 1080p screen res setup for the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA SSC ACX+ 2.0 4GB Edition. Then, when we look at the Cyberpunk 2077 Low vs Ultra graphics settings, we think it is best run at Medium setting or a bit higher. For comparison, the returning frame rates would look a bit like this - 1080p Medium 66 FPS, 1080p High setting: 44 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 32 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 63 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 50 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Dragon Ball Z Kakarot - To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA SSC ACX+ 2.0 4GB Edition card will play Dragon Ball Z Kakarot at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 37 frame rate, 1440p can deliver 62 FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 81 frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.
