Gaming PC build Radeon RX 480X 8GB, Core i5-4460 3.2GHz, 8GB performance review

When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a Core i5-4460 3.2GHz CPU with a Radeon RX 480X 8GB GPU and 8GB RAM is more powerful than 198 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of Core i5-4460 3.2GHz. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 725 games at recommended requirement.

Lets see how this PC performs with a popular game like Halo: Reach. To summarise, this is an easy one, the Radeon RX 480X 8GB 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 87 frame rate, whereby we see 146 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 191 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 $1.83, 1440p costs $2.39 and 4K costs $4.01.

2nd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - In summary, we feel that the Radeon RX 480X 8GB looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Red Dead Redemption 2 experience it will generate 122 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 96 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 65 FPS when played at High settings and down to 46 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 61 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.

3rd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, we feel that the Radeon RX 480X 8GB looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Call of Duty: Modern Warfare experience it will generate 122 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 96 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 65 FPS when played at High settings and down to 46 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 61 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.
