Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 100 ME 4GB Edition, Core i5-8600K 6-Core 3.6GHz, 16GB performance review

A PC gaming machine that puts together a Core i5-8600K 6-Core 3.6GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 100 ME 4GB Edition GPU and 16GB system memory will be able to play 596 games from the top 1000 recommended requirements. The PC could increase the number of games it can run at recommended requirements to 869 if it upgraded its bottleneck component, the GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 100 ME 4GB Edition.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. To summarise, we feel that with the GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 100 ME 4GB Edition you can enjoy Red Dead Redemption 2 at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 35 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 49 FPS, and at Medium 73 FPS and then on Low it would return 93 FPS. The GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 100 ME 4GB Edition would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 46 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 100 ME 4GB Edition graphics card, but in so doing you would have to drop the graphics settings to pretty Low according to our assessment. But let the Cyberpunk 2077 frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 62 FPS, 1080p High setting: 42 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 30 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 60 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 48 FPS. Our Low vs Ultra analysis tells us that you would be better placed running this at 1080p, but at least you could still tinker with graphics settings for 1440p to perhaps be passable?

3rd most popular game: Dragon Ball Z Kakarot - To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding Dragon Ball Z Kakarot frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 36 FPS, 1440p will get 61 frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 80 FPS. Based around the GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 100 ME 4GB Edition launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $0, 1440p frames cost $0 each and then the 4K costs $0 per frame.
