Hi DIMP666 I was looking for someone to play Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare with me. Would you be interested in a gaming session if you have the game? Your fellow GD'er, amirleon

Gaming PC build Radeon R9 290, Core i5-3470 3.2GHz, 8GB performance review

A PC gaming machine that puts together a Core i5-3470 3.2GHz processor, a Radeon R9 290 GPU and 8GB system memory will be able to play 92 games from the top 1000 recommended requirements. The PC could increase the number of games it can run at recommended requirements to 354 if it upgraded its bottleneck component, the Core i5-3470 3.2GHz.

Lets compare todays most popular game, Halo: Reach with this PC. To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding Halo: Reach frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 62 FPS, 1440p will get 103 frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 136 FPS. Based around the Radeon R9 290 launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $2.93, 1440p frames cost $3.87 each and then the 4K costs $6.44 per frame.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, here we are looking at a GPU that can only really run Cyberpunk 2077 at small laptop size screen resolutions. As for graphics settings, low vs ultra, we suggest around Medium to high at best for the Radeon R9 290.

3rd most popular game: Dragon Ball Z Kakarot - To summarise, we feel that with the Radeon R9 290 you can enjoy Dragon Ball Z Kakarot at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 48 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 67 FPS, and at Medium 100 FPS and then on Low it would return 127 FPS. The Radeon R9 290 would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 63 FPS.
