Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition, Ryzen R7 1700, 16GB performance review

When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a Ryzen R7 1700 CPU with a GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition GPU and 16GB RAM is more powerful than 979 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of Ryzen R7 1700. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 984 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. To summarise, this is an easy one, the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition solution can play Red Dead Redemption 2 at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 34 frame rate, whereby we see 57 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 75 frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs {USD}, 1440p costs {USD} and 4K costs {USD}.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, we feel that the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Call of Duty: Modern Warfare experience it will generate 140 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 110 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 74 FPS when played at High settings and down to 53 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 70 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.

3rd most popular game: Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip - To summarise, this is an easy one, the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition solution can play Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 38 frame rate, whereby we see 64 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 84 frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs {USD}, 1440p costs {USD} and 4K costs {USD}.
