Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 960M 4GB, Core i5-6440HQ 2.6GHz, 10GB performance review

When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a Core i5-6440HQ 2.6GHz CPU with a GeForce GTX 960M 4GB GPU and 10GB RAM is more powerful than 0 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of GeForce GTX 960M 4GB. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 192 games at recommended requirement.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, this GPU will struggle even at low laptop screen resolutions and bottom graphics settings

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, this GPU will struggle even at low laptop screen resolutions and bottom graphics settings

3rd most popular game: Halo: Reach - In summary, we feel that the GeForce GTX 960M 4GB looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Halo: Reach experience it will generate 106 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 83 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 56 FPS when played at High settings and down to 40 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 53 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.
