Gaming PC build Radeon R9 280 MSI Gaming 3GB Edition, Core i5-4440 3.1GHz, 8GB performance review

This gaming PC can currently run the recommended requirements of 134 of the 1000 most demanding PC games available today. The hardware in this gaming PC has a Core i5-4440 3.1GHz as the weak point. If this was upgraded then the system could play up to 135 games from the 1000 most demanding games of today.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Halo: Reach. In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this Radeon R9 280 MSI Gaming 3GB Edition card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Halo: Reach at, because you can get 42 FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 71 frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 93 FPS at 1080p Ultra.

2nd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - In summary, when considering Low vs Ultra graphics settings the Radeon R9 280 MSI Gaming 3GB Edition graphics card should only run Red Dead Redemption 2 on low end laptop screens and lower graphics settings.

3rd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, when considering Low vs Ultra graphics settings the Radeon R9 280 MSI Gaming 3GB Edition graphics card should only run Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on low end laptop screens and lower graphics settings.
