Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 960 2GB, Core i5-3470 3.2GHz, 8GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i5-3470 3.2GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 960 2GB graphics card and 8GB RAM is better performing than 79 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the Core i5-3470 3.2GHz as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 110 at recommended requirement.

Lets compare todays most popular game, Red Dead Redemption 2 with this PC. In summary, while looking at Low vs Ultra settings this GeForce GTX 960 2GB should only play Red Dead Redemption 2 on a small laptop screen and probably at less than High settings.

2nd most popular game: Halo: Reach - In summary, if you are looking to play Halo: Reach in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The GeForce GTX 960 2GB can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 85 frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 64 FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 38 FPS in Ultra as well.

3rd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - To summarise, the GeForce GTX 960 2GB fails to meet the very basic performance needs of the Cyberpunk 2077
