Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 960 MSI 2GB Edition, FX-4300, 8GB performance review

This gaming PC performance puts its 3 key components (8GB, FX-4300, GeForce GTX 960 MSI 2GB Edition) as better than 0 games from the top 1000 most demanding games of today. The hardware weak point in this gaming pc is FX-4300. If this bottleneck was upgraded, then the number of games (from the top 1000 games list) it could run would increase to 190 at recommended requirement.

This PC’s performance can be benchmarked against todays most popular game, Halo: Reach. To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the GeForce GTX 960 MSI 2GB Edition card will play Halo: Reach at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 38 frame rate, 1440p can deliver 64 FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 85 frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.

2nd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - In summary, this GPU, GeForce GTX 960 MSI 2GB Edition, is only suitable at running Red Dead Redemption 2 on a small screen size resolution. Probably best suited to small laptop screens. In terms of Low vs Ultra graphics settings, we recommend considering medium or high settings at best.

3rd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, this GPU, GeForce GTX 960 MSI 2GB Edition, is only suitable at running Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on a small screen size resolution. Probably best suited to small laptop screens. In terms of Low vs Ultra graphics settings, we recommend considering medium or high settings at best.
