Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 980 Galax HOF 4GB Edition, Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz, 16GB performance review

A PC with a Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz can run 824 of the top 1000 PC games released when it also has the GeForce GTX 980 Galax HOF 4GB Edition graphics card and 16GB system memory in it. This combination of hardware leaves the GeForce GTX 980 Galax HOF 4GB Edition as the weak point, when looking at what games it can play. You could upgrade that component enabling the system to run 897 games of our most demanding games list.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Doom Eternal. In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 980 Galax HOF 4GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 55 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Doom Eternal then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 110 FPS or the Medium returning 86 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 58 FPS and then Ultra gets 42 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Half-Life: Alyx - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Half-Life: Alyx in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 980 Galax HOF 4GB Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 91 FPS, Medium setting: 72 FPS, High setting: 48 FPS, Ultra setting: 35 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 980 Galax HOF 4GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 60 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 121 FPS or the Medium returning 95 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 64 FPS and then Ultra gets 46 FPS.
