Gaming PC build Radeon R9 280X MSI Gaming 3GB Edition, FX-6300, 16GB performance review

This gaming PC can currently run the recommended requirements of 0 of the 1000 most demanding PC games available today. The hardware in this gaming PC has a FX-6300 as the weak point. If this was upgraded then the system could play up to 256 games from the 1000 most demanding games of today.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Halo: Reach. In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this Radeon R9 280X MSI Gaming 3GB Edition card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Halo: Reach at, because you can get 50 FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 84 frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 111 FPS at 1080p Ultra.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, the Radeon R9 280X MSI Gaming 3GB Edition will fail to deliver a suitable FPS even at lowest resolutions and graphics settings.

3rd most popular game: Dragon Ball Z Kakarot - To summarise, while it's not always a sure thing, this GPU certainly seems capable of delivering FPS in Dragon Ball Z Kakarot. It feels that the Radeon R9 280X MSI Gaming 3GB Edition is going to be best run at 1440p for suitable frame rates, and while it still might struggle a little at Ultra 1440p, it will certainly do well in this resolution range. Here are some Low Vs Ultra frame rates that we can consider at 1440p. Low setting: 104 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 82 FPS, 1440p High setting: 55 FPS, 1440p Ultra setting: 39 FPS.
