Gaming PC build Radeon R9 290X MSI Gaming Edition, FX-8350, 16GB performance review

This gaming PC performance puts its 3 key components (16GB, FX-8350, Radeon R9 290X MSI Gaming Edition) as better than 280 games from the top 1000 most demanding games of today. The hardware weak point in this gaming pc is FX-8350. If this bottleneck was upgraded, then the number of games (from the top 1000 games list) it could run would increase to 533 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, the best resolution performance for this Radeon R9 290X MSI Gaming Edition looks to be 1440p. There is definitely a great 1080p Ultra result if that is more your requirement, with it pulling 47 FPS, but you certainly can move up to 1440p where we see it returning 94 FPS on Low 1440p, 74 FPS at Medium 1440p, 50 FPS on High settings and finally Ultra gets 35 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, the best resolution performance for this Radeon R9 290X MSI Gaming Edition looks to be 1440p. There is definitely a great 1080p Ultra result if that is more your requirement, with it pulling 47 FPS, but you certainly can move up to 1440p where we see it returning 94 FPS on Low 1440p, 74 FPS at Medium 1440p, 50 FPS on High settings and finally Ultra gets 35 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Halo: Reach - To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the Radeon R9 290X MSI Gaming Edition card will play Halo: Reach at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 67 frame rate, 1440p can deliver 112 FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 147 frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.
