Gaming PC build Radeon HD 7970 OC Sapphire Edition, Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz, 8GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz processor, a Radeon HD 7970 OC Sapphire Edition graphics card and 8GB RAM is better performing than 0 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 258 at recommended requirement.

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 Radeon HD 7970 OC Sapphire 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 OC Sapphire 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 OC Sapphire Edition fails to meet the very basic performance needs of the Cyberpunk 2077
