Gaming PC build Radeon R9 280X Sapphire TRI-X OC 3GB Edition, FX-8350, 16GB performance review

A PC gaming machine that puts together a FX-8350 processor, a Radeon R9 280X Sapphire TRI-X OC 3GB Edition GPU and 16GB system memory will be able to play 45 games from the top 1000 recommended requirements. The PC could increase the number of games it can run at recommended requirements to 48 if it upgraded its bottleneck component, the FX-8350.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Cyberpunk 2077. In summary, you should avoid trying to play Cyberpunk 2077 with the Radeon R9 280X Sapphire TRI-X OC 3GB Edition

2nd most popular game: Microsoft Flight Simulator - In summary, here we are looking at a GPU that can only really run Microsoft Flight Simulator at small laptop size screen resolutions. As for graphics settings, low vs ultra, we suggest around Medium to high at best for the Radeon R9 280X Sapphire TRI-X OC 3GB Edition.

3rd most popular game: Horizon: Zero Dawn - To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this Radeon R9 280X Sapphire TRI-X OC 3GB Edition graphics card, but in so doing you would have to drop the graphics settings to pretty Low according to our assessment. But let the Horizon: Zero Dawn frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 62 FPS, 1080p High setting: 42 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 30 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 60 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 48 FPS. Our Low vs Ultra analysis tells us that you would be better placed running this at 1080p, but at least you could still tinker with graphics settings for 1440p to perhaps be passable?
