Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI, Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz, 16GB performance review

When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz CPU with a GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI GPU and 16GB RAM is more powerful than 278 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 966 games at recommended requirement.

This PC’s performance can be benchmarked against todays most popular game, Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord. To summarise, this is an easy one, the GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI solution can play Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 35 frame rate, whereby we see 59 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 78 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 $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.

2nd most popular game: Doom Eternal - To summarise, this is an easy one, the GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI solution can play Doom Eternal at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 33 frame rate, whereby we see 55 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 72 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 $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.

3rd most popular game: Half-Life: Alyx - In summary, we feel that the GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Half-Life: Alyx experience it will generate 100 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 79 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 53 FPS when played at High settings and down to 38 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 50 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.
