Gaming PC build Radeon R9 290 MSI Gaming Edition, Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz, 12GB performance review

A PC with a Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz can run 421 of the top 1000 PC games released when it also has the Radeon R9 290 MSI Gaming Edition graphics card and 12GB 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 491 games of our most demanding games list.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. 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: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, while looking at Low vs Ultra settings this Radeon R9 290 MSI Gaming Edition should only play Cyberpunk 2077 on a small laptop screen and probably at less than High settings.
