Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition, Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz, 16GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition graphics card and 16GB RAM is better performing than 593 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 829 at recommended requirement.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Cyberpunk 2077. In summary, while some might be tempted to play Cyberpunk 2077 in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 98 FPS, Medium setting: 77 FPS, High setting: 52 FPS, Ultra setting: 37 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 52 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Red Dead Redemption 2 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 104 FPS or the Medium returning 82 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 55 FPS and then Ultra gets 39 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Dragon Ball Z Kakarot - In summary, if you are looking to play Dragon Ball Z Kakarot in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 89 frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 68 FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 40 FPS in Ultra as well.
