Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 980 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition, FX-8350, 16GB performance review

This gaming PC can currently run the recommended requirements of 286 of the 1000 most demanding PC games available today. The hardware in this gaming PC has a FX-8350 as the weak point. If this was upgraded then the system could play up to 853 games from the 1000 most demanding games of today.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Halo: Reach. In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this GeForce GTX 980 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Halo: Reach at, because you can get 69 FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 116 frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 152 FPS at 1080p Ultra.

2nd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - To summarise, while it's not always a sure thing, this GPU certainly seems capable of delivering FPS in Red Dead Redemption 2. It feels that the GeForce GTX 980 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition is going to be best run at 1440p for suitable frame rates, and while it still might struggle a little at Ultra 1440p, it will certainly do well in this resolution range. Here are some Low Vs Ultra frame rates that we can consider at 1440p. Low setting: 106 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 83 FPS, 1440p High setting: 56 FPS, 1440p Ultra setting: 40 FPS.

It feels that the GeForce GTX 980 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition is going to be best run at 1440p for suitable frame rates, and while it still might struggle a little at Ultra 1440p, it will certainly do well in this resolution range.
