When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a Core i7-4790 4-Core 3.6GHz CPU with a GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 OC 6GB GPU and 16GB RAM is more powerful than 746 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 OC 6GB. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 781 games at recommended requirement.

Todays most popular game is Red Dead Redemption 2, which provides a good performance benchmark for this PC’s hardware. In summary, we feel that the GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 OC 6GB looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Red Dead Redemption 2 experience it will generate 101 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 79 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 53 FPS when played at High settings and down to 38 FPS when turned up to Ultra on 1440p. You might still be looking for 1080p though to get some higher smoother FPS, where you could get 50 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.

2nd most popular game: Halo: Reach - To summarise, this is an easy one, the GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 OC 6GB solution can play Halo: Reach at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 66 frame rate, whereby we see 111 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 146 frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.

3rd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, a good way to look at the performance with this GeForce GTX 1060 KFA2 OC 6GB is to consider, do you want 1080p gaming with ok graphics settings or would you be needing 1440p resolution with bottom end graphics settings. Take a look at the following results to help you choose. 1080p Medium 73 FPS, 1080p High setting: 49 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 35 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 70 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 56 FPS.
