Gaming PC build Radeon RX 460 MSI OC 2GB, Core i3-6100 3.7GHz, 8GB performance review

When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a Core i3-6100 3.7GHz CPU with a Radeon RX 460 MSI OC 2GB GPU and 8GB RAM is more powerful than 0 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of Core i3-6100 3.7GHz. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 64 games at recommended requirement.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Halo: Reach. To summarise, this is an easy one, the Radeon RX 460 MSI OC 2GB solution can play Halo: Reach at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 42 frame rate, whereby we see 70 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 92 frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $1.38, 1440p costs $1.81 and 4K costs $3.02.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, this GPU will struggle even at low laptop screen resolutions and bottom graphics settings

3rd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - In summary, this GPU, Radeon RX 460 MSI OC 2GB, is only suitable at running Red Dead Redemption 2 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.
