Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition, Core i5-3470 3.2GHz, 8GB performance review

This gaming PC performance puts its 3 key components (8GB, Core i5-3470 3.2GHz, GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition) as better than 95 games from the top 1000 most demanding games of today. The hardware weak point in this gaming pc is Core i5-3470 3.2GHz. If this bottleneck was upgraded, then the number of games (from the top 1000 games list) it could run would increase to 214 at recommended requirement.

Lets compare todays most popular game, Halo: Reach with this PC. To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition card will play Halo: Reach at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 41 frame rate, 1440p can deliver 69 FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 91 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.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - To summarise, the GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition fails to meet the very basic performance needs of the Cyberpunk 2077

3rd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - In summary, this GPU, GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition, is only suitable at running Red Dead Redemption 2 on a small screen size resolution. Probably best suited to small laptop screens. In terms of Low vs Ultra graphics settings, we recommend considering medium or high settings at best.
