Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 980 Gigabyte WindForce 3X 4GB Edition, Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz, 16GB performance review

A PC gaming machine that puts together a Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 980 Gigabyte WindForce 3X 4GB Edition GPU and 16GB system memory will be able to play 737 games from the top 1000 recommended requirements. The PC could increase the number of games it can run at recommended requirements to 819 if it upgraded its bottleneck component, the GeForce GTX 980 Gigabyte WindForce 3X 4GB Edition.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Hitman 3. To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this GeForce GTX 980 Gigabyte WindForce 3X 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 Hitman 3 frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 77 FPS, 1080p High setting: 52 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 37 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 75 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 59 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?

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - To summarise, we feel that with the GeForce GTX 980 Gigabyte WindForce 3X 4GB Edition you can enjoy Cyberpunk 2077 at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 39 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 55 FPS, and at Medium 82 FPS and then on Low it would return 104 FPS. The GeForce GTX 980 Gigabyte WindForce 3X 4GB Edition would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 52 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Assassins Creed: Valhalla - To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this GeForce GTX 980 Gigabyte WindForce 3X 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 Assassins Creed: Valhalla frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 60 FPS, 1080p High setting: 52 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 35 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 53 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 46 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?
