Gaming PC build Radeon R9 390 MSI Gaming 8GB Edition, Core i5-4460 3.2GHz, 16GB performance review

A PC gaming machine that puts together a Core i5-4460 3.2GHz processor, a Radeon R9 390 MSI Gaming 8GB Edition GPU and 16GB system memory will be able to play 135 games from the top 1000 recommended requirements. The PC could increase the number of games it can run at recommended requirements to 524 if it upgraded its bottleneck component, the Core i5-4460 3.2GHz.

Lets see how this PC performs with a popular game like Halo: Reach. To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding Halo: Reach frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 68 FPS, 1440p will get 113 frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 149 FPS. Based around the Radeon R9 390 MSI Gaming 8GB Edition launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $2.21, 1440p frames cost $2.91 each and then the 4K costs $4.84 per frame.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this Radeon R9 390 MSI Gaming 8GB Edition graphics card, but in so doing you would have to drop the graphics settings to pretty Low according to our assessment. But let the Cyberpunk 2077 frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 49 FPS, 1080p High setting: 33 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 24 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 47 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 37 FPS. Our Low vs Ultra analysis tells us that you would be better placed running this at 1080p, but at least you could still tinker with graphics settings for 1440p to perhaps be passable?

3rd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - To summarise, we feel that with the Radeon R9 390 MSI Gaming 8GB Edition you can enjoy Red Dead Redemption 2 at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 36 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 50 FPS, and at Medium 75 FPS and then on Low it would return 95 FPS. The Radeon R9 390 MSI Gaming 8GB Edition would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 47 FPS.
