Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI, Core i7-5820K 6-Core 3.3GHz, 32GB performance review

This GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI graphics card, along with a Core i7-5820K 6-Core 3.3GHz can run 961 of the top 1000 PC games released. A gaming PC like this has a Core i7-5820K 6-Core 3.3GHz weak point. If this component was upgraded then the system could play up to 970 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, the performance delivered by this graphics card easily overpowers that needed by Red Dead Redemption 2. We expect to get a very strong frame rate of 72 FPS at 1080p Ultra, but would advise moving up to 1440p Ultra to get 55 frames per second or even 33 FPS at 4K Ultra as the GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI 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.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, we put the 1440p screen resolution as the better choice for the GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI 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 94 FPS and Ultra is 67 FPS. Then moving on to the 1440p FPS with Low setting: 135 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 106 FPS, 1440p High setting: 72 FPS, 1440p Ultra setting: 51 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Halo: Reach - In summary, the performance delivered by this graphics card easily overpowers that needed by Halo: Reach. We expect to get a very strong frame rate of 200+ FPS at 1080p Ultra, but would advise moving up to 1440p Ultra to get 158 frames per second or even 94 FPS at 4K Ultra as the GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI 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.
