Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 980 EVGA ACX 2.0 4GB Edition, FX-8350, 16GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a FX-8350 processor, a GeForce GTX 980 EVGA ACX 2.0 4GB Edition graphics card and 16GB RAM is better performing than 276 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the FX-8350 as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 758 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, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 980 EVGA ACX 2.0 4GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 50 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Red Dead Redemption 2 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 100 FPS or the Medium returning 79 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 53 FPS and then Ultra gets 38 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 980 EVGA ACX 2.0 4GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 46 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 93 FPS or the Medium returning 73 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 49 FPS and then Ultra gets 35 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Cyberpunk 2077 in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 980 EVGA ACX 2.0 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.
