Gaming PC build Radeon R9 290 Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition, FX-8370, 8GB performance review

A PC gaming machine that puts together a FX-8370 processor, a Radeon R9 290 Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition GPU and 8GB system memory will be able to play 366 games from the top 1000 recommended requirements. The PC could increase the number of games it can run at recommended requirements to 411 if it upgraded its bottleneck component, the FX-8370.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Cyberpunk 2077. In summary, here we are looking at a GPU that can only really run Cyberpunk 2077 at small laptop size screen resolutions. As for graphics settings, low vs ultra, we suggest around Medium to high at best for the Radeon R9 290 Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition.

2nd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - To summarise, we feel that with the Radeon R9 290 Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC 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 34 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 48 FPS, and at Medium 71 FPS and then on Low it would return 90 FPS. The Radeon R9 290 Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 45 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Doom Eternal - To summarise, we feel that with the Radeon R9 290 Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition you can enjoy Doom Eternal at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 40 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 56 FPS, and at Medium 83 FPS and then on Low it would return 106 FPS. The Radeon R9 290 Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 53 FPS.
