Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition, FX-8320, 8GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a FX-8320 processor, a GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition graphics card and 8GB RAM is better performing than 174 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the FX-8320 as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 722 at recommended requirement.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 52 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Red Dead Redemption 2 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 104 FPS or the Medium returning 82 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 55 FPS and then Ultra gets 39 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 48 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 97 FPS or the Medium returning 76 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 51 FPS and then Ultra gets 37 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Halo: Reach - In summary, if you are looking to play Halo: Reach in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 150 frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 114 FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 68 FPS in Ultra as well.
