Gaming PC build Radeon R9 290 MSI Gaming Edition, Core i7-4770 4-Core 3.4GHz, 16GB performance review

A PC with a Core i7-4770 4-Core 3.4GHz can run 429 of the top 1000 PC games released when it also has the Radeon R9 290 MSI Gaming Edition graphics card and 16GB system memory in it. This combination of hardware leaves the Radeon R9 290 MSI Gaming Edition as the weak point, when looking at what games it can play. You could upgrade that component enabling the system to run 757 games of our most demanding games list.

This PC, when compared to a popular game like Red Dead Redemption 2 is a good way to review its gaming performance. In summary, while some might be tempted to play Red Dead Redemption 2 in 1440p resolution with the Radeon R9 290 MSI Gaming Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 116 FPS, Medium setting: 92 FPS, High setting: 62 FPS, Ultra setting: 44 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in 1440p resolution with the Radeon R9 290 MSI Gaming Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 116 FPS, Medium setting: 92 FPS, High setting: 62 FPS, Ultra setting: 44 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Halo: Reach - In summary, the Radeon R9 290 MSI Gaming Edition is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for Halo: Reach, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 141 FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 107 frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 64 FPS.
