Gaming PC build Radeon R9 290X, Core i7-4790 4-Core 3.6GHz, 16GB performance review

When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a Core i7-4790 4-Core 3.6GHz CPU with a Radeon R9 290X GPU and 16GB RAM is more powerful than 391 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of Radeon R9 290X. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 758 games at recommended requirement.

Todays most popular game is Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord, which provides a good performance benchmark for this PC’s hardware. In summary, we feel that the Radeon R9 290X looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord experience it will generate 92 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 72 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 49 FPS when played at High settings and down to 35 FPS when turned up to Ultra on 1440p. You might still be looking for 1080p though to get some higher smoother FPS, where you could get 46 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.

2nd most popular game: Doom Eternal - In summary, we feel that the Radeon R9 290X looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Doom Eternal experience it will generate 90 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 71 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 48 FPS when played at High settings and down to 34 FPS when turned up to Ultra on 1440p. You might still be looking for 1080p though to get some higher smoother FPS, where you could get 45 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.

3rd most popular game: Half-Life: Alyx - In summary, this GPU, Radeon R9 290X, is only suitable at running Half-Life: Alyx on a small screen size resolution. Probably best suited to small laptop screens. In terms of Low vs Ultra graphics settings, we recommend considering medium or high settings at best.
