How well can the GeForce GTX 970 4GB run games
While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 970 4GB is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

This low performing GPU is unable to play any of the most demanding games available today.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 970 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 970 4GB in your PC? This GeForce GTX 970 4GB graphics card has reached the end of its ability to run games released today. If you have it in your gaming PC then it’s time to upgrade your graphics solution.

GeForce GTX 970 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 970 4GB is a high-end Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Maxwell architecture. Its relatively low release price and mind-blowing performance made it an extremely competitive product. Read below to know more.


Architecture
The Second variant of the Maxwell Architecture, despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, has an extremely large L2 Cache and features a Third Generation Delta Color Compression which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.
The Second Revision of Maxwell also adds the VXGI (Voxel Global Illumination) Technology which makes scenes significantly more lifelike and believable as light interacts more realistically in the game environment and the MFAA Technology which provides the same effect as MSAA but at a much lower performance cost.


GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM204-200-A1 which has 13 SM activated and thus offers 1664 Shader Processing Units, 104 TMUs and 56 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 1050MHz and goes up to 1178MHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1753MHz.


Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, MFAA, VXGI, GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.


Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan and is identical to the one seen on GeForce GTX 770. The Card is known to run cool and has a maximum operating temperature of 95ºC.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 145W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with two available 6-pin connectors.


Release Price
Pricing is lower than the one seen on its predecessors - $329.99 and makes it an extremely competitive product.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks prove that at 4K (3840x2160) GeForce GTX 970 4GB is over 25% faster than its predecessor and even beats GeForce GTX 780 in about 10%.


System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 970 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.

I don't know if it's still relevant for you but it still is a pretty good graphics card. I can play basically everything on ultra on 1080p, aside from some very new and heavy games. (Like star citizen)

In my experience it even handles Star Citizen fine. The performance in PU based on their servers, not your hardware. If it can run Arena Commander, it can run Star Citizen in the graphics department. (I run on High with 40+fps)

It certainly will, doesn't even have to be particularly CPU intensive. Speaking from experience. Just like Aditrex said, OCing should get you maybe another year. The FX6300 is getting up there in age though, I think you should be looking into upgrading soon.

I haven't found any solid proof of that but I would personally do so, I just like having either pure red (AMD) rig or an Intel/Nvidia combo. :D

Beril2495 not true its better if you pair with nvidia card less overhead in dx 11 which i have proof right here fx 8350 paired with 970 will give better performance overall then pairing with r9 390 which is direct rival to nvidia here is prfect example of amds overhead problem in some games .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S546TL2LWNY
you need abit better cpu for amd cards speaking in general

It would go quite well with your FX 6300, you could experience slight bottleneck on very CPU intensive games but should be fine in general. If you'd like an AMD card the equivalent then maybe a R9 270X (ask around on GD first though, I don't know much about AMD stuff :D) Also note that AMD is less power efficient so check if your PSU can handle it.

@Aditrex Really? At first glance I would've guessed there would be a bottleneck.

Have you tested it? As in physically owned it, benchmarked it and monitored the CPU and GPU usage? I did and it bottlenecked my 970. Granted there is a large performance gap between the 960 and the 970.

Of course. Seems to have enough amperage and your i5 is not particularly power hungry either.

I would go for the GTX 970 used over 1060 3GB. It should be slightly better or worse performing than 1060 3GB, seeing as how 1060 6GB is near-equal to a 980 and 3GB is slightly cut down. But, 970 has more VRAM.
