Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte XTREME Gaming 2GB Edition, Core i5-6500 3.2GHz, 8GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i5-6500 3.2GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte XTREME Gaming 2GB Edition graphics card and 8GB RAM is better performing than 84 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte XTREME Gaming 2GB Edition as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 178 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how this PC performs with a popular game like Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, while looking at Low vs Ultra settings this GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte XTREME Gaming 2GB Edition should only play Red Dead Redemption 2 on a small laptop screen and probably at less than High settings.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - To summarise, the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte XTREME Gaming 2GB Edition fails to meet the very basic performance needs of the Cyberpunk 2077

3rd most popular game: Dragon Ball Z Kakarot - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte XTREME Gaming 2GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 49 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Dragon Ball Z Kakarot then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 98 FPS or the Medium returning 77 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 52 FPS and then Ultra gets 37 FPS.
