According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i7-5820K 6-Core 3.3GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 980 EVGA ACX 2.0 4GB Edition graphics card and 32GB RAM is better performing than 717 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the GeForce GTX 980 EVGA ACX 2.0 4GB Edition as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 952 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how this PC performs with a popular game like Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord. In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 980 EVGA ACX 2.0 4GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 55 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 110 FPS or the Medium returning 86 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 58 FPS and then Ultra gets 42 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Doom Eternal - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 980 EVGA ACX 2.0 4GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 50 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Doom Eternal then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 100 FPS or the Medium returning 79 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 53 FPS and then Ultra gets 38 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Half-Life: Alyx - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Half-Life: Alyx in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 980 EVGA ACX 2.0 4GB Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 73 FPS, Medium setting: 57 FPS, High setting: 39 FPS, Ultra setting: 28 FPS.
