Gaming PC build Radeon HD 7970 MSI OC Edition, FX-8150, 16GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a FX-8150 processor, a Radeon HD 7970 MSI OC Edition graphics card and 16GB RAM is better performing than 75 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the FX-8150 as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 264 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, while some might be tempted to play Red Dead Redemption 2 in 1440p resolution with the Radeon HD 7970 MSI OC Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 65 FPS, Medium setting: 51 FPS, High setting: 34 FPS, Ultra setting: 25 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in 1440p resolution with the Radeon HD 7970 MSI OC Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 65 FPS, Medium setting: 51 FPS, High setting: 34 FPS, Ultra setting: 25 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - To summarise, the Radeon HD 7970 MSI OC Edition fails to meet the very basic performance needs of the Cyberpunk 2077
