Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1050 MSI 2GB, Core i5-3470 3.2GHz, 12GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i5-3470 3.2GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 1050 MSI 2GB graphics card and 12GB RAM is better performing than 30 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the Core i5-3470 3.2GHz as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 40 at recommended requirement.

Lets compare todays most popular game, Cyberpunk 2077 with this PC. To summarise, the GeForce GTX 1050 MSI 2GB fails to meet the very basic performance needs of the Cyberpunk 2077

2nd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - In summary, while looking at Low vs Ultra settings this GeForce GTX 1050 MSI 2GB should only play Red Dead Redemption 2 on a small laptop screen and probably at less than High settings.

3rd most popular game: Doom Eternal - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Doom Eternal in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 1050 MSI 2GB, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 59 FPS, Medium setting: 47 FPS, High setting: 32 FPS, Ultra setting: 23 FPS.
