Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition, Core i5-4440 3.1GHz, 8GB performance review

This gaming PC performance puts its 3 key components (8GB, Core i5-4440 3.1GHz, GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition) as better than 114 games from the top 1000 most demanding games of today. The hardware weak point in this gaming pc is Core i5-4440 3.1GHz. If this bottleneck was upgraded, then the number of games (from the top 1000 games list) it could run would increase to 575 at recommended requirement.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, the best resolution performance for this GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition looks to be 1440p. There is definitely a great 1080p Ultra result if that is more your requirement, with it pulling 45 FPS, but you certainly can move up to 1440p where we see it returning 91 FPS on Low 1440p, 71 FPS at Medium 1440p, 48 FPS on High settings and finally Ultra gets 34 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, go with a 1080p screen res setup for the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition. Then, when we look at the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Low vs Ultra graphics settings, we think it is best run at Medium setting or a bit higher. For comparison, the returning frame rates would look a bit like this - 1080p Medium 86 FPS, 1080p High setting: 58 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 42 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 84 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 66 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, go with a 1080p screen res setup for the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition. Then, when we look at the Cyberpunk 2077 Low vs Ultra graphics settings, we think it is best run at Medium setting or a bit higher. For comparison, the returning frame rates would look a bit like this - 1080p Medium 59 FPS, 1080p High setting: 40 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 29 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 57 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 45 FPS.
