Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 970 PNY 4GB Edition, FX-8350, 16GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a FX-8350 processor, a GeForce GTX 970 PNY 4GB Edition graphics card and 16GB RAM is better performing than 222 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the FX-8350 as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 488 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, while some might be tempted to play Red Dead Redemption 2 in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 970 PNY 4GB Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 115 FPS, Medium setting: 90 FPS, High setting: 61 FPS, Ultra setting: 44 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Cyberpunk 2077 in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 970 PNY 4GB Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 70 FPS, Medium setting: 55 FPS, High setting: 37 FPS, Ultra setting: 27 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Dragon Ball Z Kakarot - In summary, if you are looking to play Dragon Ball Z Kakarot in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The GeForce GTX 970 PNY 4GB Edition can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 76 frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 58 FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 35 FPS in Ultra as well.
