Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 660 SLI, Core i7-3820 4-Core 3.60GHz, 8GB performance review

A PC with a Core i7-3820 4-Core 3.60GHz can run 0 of the top 1000 PC games released when it also has the GeForce GTX 660 SLI graphics card and 8GB system memory in it. This combination of hardware leaves the GeForce GTX 660 SLI as the weak point, when looking at what games it can play. You could upgrade that component enabling the system to run 382 games of our most demanding games list.

This PC, when compared to a popular game like Cyberpunk 2077 is a good way to review its gaming performance. In summary, while some might be tempted to play Cyberpunk 2077 in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 660 SLI, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 87 FPS, Medium setting: 69 FPS, High setting: 46 FPS, Ultra setting: 33 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Assassins Creed: Valhalla - To summarise, we expect Low vs Ultra settings will not be as simple with the GeForce GTX 660 SLI. First drop the resolution down to laptop sizings, something like 1366x768 and turn down the setting to High to get 65 FPS or even Medium for 76 FPS when playing Assassins Creed: Valhalla.

3rd most popular game: Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 660 SLI, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 107 FPS, Medium setting: 84 FPS, High setting: 57 FPS, Ultra setting: 41 FPS.
