Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1070 EVGA SC GAMING ACX 3.0 8GB Edition, Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz, 12GB performance review

A PC with a Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz can run 126 of the top 1000 PC games released when it also has the GeForce GTX 1070 EVGA SC GAMING ACX 3.0 8GB Edition graphics card and 12GB system memory in it. This combination of hardware leaves the Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz as the weak point, when looking at what games it can play. You could upgrade that component enabling the system to run 743 games of our most demanding games list.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1070 EVGA SC GAMING ACX 3.0 8GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 68 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Red Dead Redemption 2 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 137 FPS or the Medium returning 108 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 73 FPS and then Ultra gets 52 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1070 EVGA SC GAMING ACX 3.0 8GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 64 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 128 FPS or the Medium returning 101 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 68 FPS and then Ultra gets 48 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Halo: Reach - In summary, the GeForce GTX 1070 EVGA SC GAMING ACX 3.0 8GB Edition is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for Halo: Reach, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 197 FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 150 frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 90 FPS.
