Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition, Core i7-6700 4-Core 3.4GHz, 16GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i7-6700 4-Core 3.4GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition graphics card and 16GB RAM is better performing than 711 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the Core i7-6700 4-Core 3.4GHz as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 800 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how this PC performs with a popular game like Cyberpunk 2077. In summary, while some might be tempted to play Cyberpunk 2077 in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 98 FPS, Medium setting: 77 FPS, High setting: 52 FPS, Ultra setting: 37 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty Warzone - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 48 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Call of Duty Warzone then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 97 FPS or the Medium returning 76 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 51 FPS and then Ultra gets 37 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Valorant - In summary, if you are looking to play Valorant in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 200+ frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 200+ FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 200+ FPS in Ultra as well.
