Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5X, Core i7-7700K 4-Core 4.2GHz, 32GB performance review

This GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5X graphics card, along with a Core i7-7700K 4-Core 4.2GHz can run 830 of the top 1000 PC games released. A gaming PC like this has a GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5X weak point. If this component was upgraded then the system could play up to 973 games from the 1000 most demanding games of today.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, we put the 1440p screen resolution as the better choice for the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5X here. But if you are looking for strong FPS at the top end of graphics quality then you would be aiming for 1080p Ultra or 1080p High. Here are some Low Vs Ultra frame rates that we think you should consider. 1080p High graphics setting gets 74 FPS and Ultra is 53 FPS. Then moving on to the 1440p FPS with Low setting: 106 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 83 FPS, 1440p High setting: 56 FPS, 1440p Ultra setting: 40 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, the Low vs Ultra graphics setting discussion brings us to consider 1080p as the optimum screen resolution for GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5X when running Cyberpunk 2077. The graphics settings and frame rates are as follows, Low setting: 100 FPS, Medium setting: 79 FPS, High setting: 53 FPS, Ultra setting: 38 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Dragon Ball Z Kakarot - In summary, the performance delivered by this graphics card easily overpowers that needed by Dragon Ball Z Kakarot. We expect to get a very strong frame rate of 90 FPS at 1080p Ultra, but would advise moving up to 1440p Ultra to get 69 frames per second or even 41 FPS at 4K Ultra as the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5X can handle this. It just comes down to your preferred resolution then tweak your graphics settings to deliver the desired effects, without a care for performance.
