Gaming PC build Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D Black Edition, Xeon E3-1230 v3, 8GB performance review

This gaming PC performance puts its 3 key components (8GB, Xeon E3-1230 v3, Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D Black Edition) as better than 302 games from the top 1000 most demanding games of today. The hardware weak point in this gaming pc is Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D Black Edition. If this bottleneck was upgraded, then the number of games (from the top 1000 games list) it could run would increase to 614 at recommended requirement.

This PC performance in relation to a popular game like Red Dead Redemption 2 is a good way to review its hardware capability. In summary, go with a 1080p screen res setup for the Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D Black Edition. Then, when we look at the Red Dead Redemption 2 Low vs Ultra graphics settings, we think it is best run at Medium setting or a bit higher. For comparison, the returning frame rates would look a bit like this - 1080p Medium 62 FPS, 1080p High setting: 42 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 30 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 60 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 48 FPS.

For comparison, the returning frame rates would look a bit like this - 1080p Medium 62 FPS, 1080p High setting: 42 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 30 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 60 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 48 FPS.
