A gaming PC with the Core i7-8700K 6-Core 3.7GHz, paired with a GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Armor OC 8GB Edition graphics card and 16 GD RAM can play 980 of the 1000 top recommended requirements games. This PC’s weak point is the Core i7-8700K 6-Core 3.7GHz, and the best performing hardware is the 16 GB RAM.

This PC’s performance can be benchmarked against todays most popular game, Red Dead Redemption 2. To summarise, this game runs easily using this graphics card at all resolutions. Red Dead Redemption 2 gets 33 FPS at 4K Ultra costing $0 per frame. But if that doesnt feel right for you then you can drop the graphics setting down to High for 46 FPS costing $0 per frame.
