Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor 6G OC, Core i5-8400 6-Core 2.8GHz, 16GB performance review

When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a Core i5-8400 6-Core 2.8GHz CPU with a GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor 6G OC GPU and 16GB RAM is more powerful than 736 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of Core i5-8400 6-Core 2.8GHz. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 845 games at recommended requirement.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, we feel that the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor 6G OC looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Red Dead Redemption 2 experience it will generate 103 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 81 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 54 FPS when played at High settings and down to 39 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 51 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.

2nd most popular game: Halo: Reach - To summarise, this is an easy one, the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor 6G OC 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 67 frame rate, whereby we see 113 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 148 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 $1.89, 1440p costs $2.47 and 4K costs $4.16.

3rd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, we feel that the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor 6G OC looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Call of Duty: Modern Warfare experience it will generate 96 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 75 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 51 FPS when played at High settings and down to 36 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.
