Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 660 SLI, Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz, 16GB performance review

A PC with a Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz can run 349 of the top 1000 PC games released when it also has the GeForce GTX 660 SLI graphics card and 16GB system memory in it. This combination of hardware leaves the GeForce GTX 660 SLI as the weak point, when looking at what games it can play. You could upgrade that component enabling the system to run 923 games of our most demanding games list.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, while some might be tempted to play Red Dead Redemption 2 in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 660 SLI, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 87 FPS, Medium setting: 69 FPS, High setting: 46 FPS, Ultra setting: 33 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 GeForce GTX 660 SLI, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 74 FPS, Medium setting: 58 FPS, High setting: 39 FPS, Ultra setting: 28 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Halo: Reach - In summary, the GeForce GTX 660 SLI 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 108 FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 82 frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 49 FPS.
