Gaming PC build Radeon R9 290, Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz, 16GB performance review

A PC gaming machine that puts together a Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz processor, a Radeon R9 290 GPU and 16GB system memory will be able to play 392 games from the top 1000 recommended requirements. The PC could increase the number of games it can run at recommended requirements to 626 if it upgraded its bottleneck component, the Radeon R9 290.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this Radeon R9 290 graphics card, but in so doing you would have to drop the graphics settings to pretty Low according to our assessment. But let the Red Dead Redemption 2 frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 87 FPS, 1080p High setting: 59 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 42 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 85 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 67 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?

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this Radeon R9 290 graphics card, but in so doing you would have to drop the graphics settings to pretty Low according to our assessment. But let the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 87 FPS, 1080p High setting: 59 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 42 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 85 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 67 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: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, here we are looking at a GPU that can only really run Cyberpunk 2077 at small laptop size screen resolutions. As for graphics settings, low vs ultra, we suggest around Medium to high at best for the Radeon R9 290.
