Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Edition, FX-8320, 16GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a FX-8320 processor, a GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Edition graphics card and 16GB RAM is better performing than 165 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the FX-8320 as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 397 at recommended requirement.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, while some might be tempted to play Red Dead Redemption 2 in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 99 FPS, Medium setting: 78 FPS, High setting: 53 FPS, Ultra setting: 38 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 87 FPS, Medium setting: 69 FPS, High setting: 46 FPS, Ultra setting: 33 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Halo: Reach - In summary, if you are looking to play Halo: Reach in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Edition can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 116 frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 88 FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 53 FPS in Ultra as well.
