Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 960 Zotac 4GB Edition, Xeon Processor W3680, 16GB performance review

This gaming PC performance puts its 3 key components (16GB, Xeon Processor W3680, GeForce GTX 960 Zotac 4GB Edition) as better than 140 games from the top 1000 most demanding games of today. The hardware weak point in this gaming pc is GeForce GTX 960 Zotac 4GB Edition. If this bottleneck was upgraded, then the number of games (from the top 1000 games list) it could run would increase to 224 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Halo: Reach. To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the GeForce GTX 960 Zotac 4GB Edition card will play Halo: Reach at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 39 frame rate, 1440p can deliver 66 FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 87 frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - To summarise, the GeForce GTX 960 Zotac 4GB Edition fails to meet the very basic performance needs of the Cyberpunk 2077

3rd most popular game: Dragon Ball Z Kakarot - In summary, the best resolution performance for this GeForce GTX 960 Zotac 4GB Edition looks to be 1440p. There is definitely a great 1080p Ultra result if that is more your requirement, with it pulling 51 FPS, but you certainly can move up to 1440p where we see it returning 103 FPS on Low 1440p, 81 FPS at Medium 1440p, 54 FPS on High settings and finally Ultra gets 39 FPS.
