Gaming PC build Radeon R9 290X XFX Core 4GB Edition, Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz, 16GB performance review

This Radeon R9 290X XFX Core 4GB Edition graphics card, along with a Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz can run 494 of the top 1000 PC games released. A gaming PC like this has a Radeon R9 290X XFX Core 4GB Edition weak point. If this component was upgraded then the system could play up to 920 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, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, we put the 1440p screen resolution as the better choice for the Radeon R9 290X XFX Core 4GB Edition here. But if you are looking for strong FPS at the top end of graphics quality then you would be aiming for 1080p Ultra or 1080p High. Here are some Low Vs Ultra frame rates that we think you should consider. 1080p High graphics setting gets 64 FPS and Ultra is 46 FPS. Then moving on to the 1440p FPS with Low setting: 92 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 72 FPS, 1440p High setting: 49 FPS, 1440p Ultra setting: 35 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, we put the 1440p screen resolution as the better choice for the Radeon R9 290X XFX Core 4GB Edition here. But if you are looking for strong FPS at the top end of graphics quality then you would be aiming for 1080p Ultra or 1080p High. Here are some Low Vs Ultra frame rates that we think you should consider. 1080p High graphics setting gets 64 FPS and Ultra is 46 FPS. Then moving on to the 1440p FPS with Low setting: 92 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 72 FPS, 1440p High setting: 49 FPS, 1440p Ultra setting: 35 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Halo: Reach - In summary, the performance delivered by this graphics card easily overpowers that needed by Halo: Reach. We expect to get a very strong frame rate of 144 FPS at 1080p Ultra, but would advise moving up to 1440p Ultra to get 110 frames per second or even 65 FPS at 4K Ultra as the Radeon R9 290X XFX Core 4GB Edition can handle this. It just comes down to your preferred resolution then tweak your graphics settings to deliver the desired effects, without a care for performance.
