Gaming PC build Radeon RX 480 8GB, FX-8350, 16GB performance review

A PC with a FX-8350 can run 276 of the top 1000 PC games released when it also has the Radeon RX 480 8GB graphics card and 16GB system memory in it. This combination of hardware leaves the FX-8350 as the weak point, when looking at what games it can play. You could upgrade that component enabling the system to run 689 games of our most demanding games list.

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 Radeon RX 480 8GB. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 51 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Red Dead Redemption 2 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 103 FPS or the Medium returning 81 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 54 FPS and then Ultra gets 39 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 Radeon RX 480 8GB. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 51 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 103 FPS or the Medium returning 81 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 54 FPS and then Ultra gets 39 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Cyberpunk 2077 in 1440p resolution with the Radeon RX 480 8GB, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 78 FPS, Medium setting: 61 FPS, High setting: 41 FPS, Ultra setting: 30 FPS.
