Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 970 4GB, Core i5-6500 3.2GHz, 8GB performance review

When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a Core i5-6500 3.2GHz CPU with a GeForce GTX 970 4GB GPU and 8GB RAM is more powerful than 23 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of Core i5-6500 3.2GHz. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 352 games at recommended requirement.

Lets see how this PC performs with a popular game like Cyberpunk 2077. In summary, a good way to look at the performance with this GeForce GTX 970 4GB is to consider, do you want 1080p gaming with ok graphics settings or would you be needing 1440p resolution with bottom end graphics settings. Take a look at the following results to help you choose. 1080p Medium 55 FPS, 1080p High setting: 37 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 27 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 53 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 42 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Hyper Scape - In summary, we feel that the GeForce GTX 970 4GB looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Hyper Scape experience it will generate 101 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 79 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 53 FPS when played at High settings and down to 38 FPS when turned up to Ultra on 1440p. You might still be looking for 1080p though to get some higher smoother FPS, where you could get 50 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.

3rd most popular game: Horizon: Zero Dawn - In summary, a good way to look at the performance with this GeForce GTX 970 4GB is to consider, do you want 1080p gaming with ok graphics settings or would you be needing 1440p resolution with bottom end graphics settings. Take a look at the following results to help you choose. 1080p Medium 90 FPS, 1080p High setting: 61 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 44 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 88 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 69 FPS.
