Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition, Core i5-8600K 6-Core 3.6GHz, 16GB performance review

When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a Core i5-8600K 6-Core 3.6GHz CPU with a GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition GPU and 16GB RAM is more powerful than 855 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of Core i5-8600K 6-Core 3.6GHz. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 980 games at recommended requirement.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord. To summarise, this is an easy one, the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition 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 37 frame rate, whereby we see 63 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 82 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 $8.77, 1440p costs $11.41 and 4K costs $19.43.

2nd most popular game: Doom Eternal - To summarise, this is an easy one, the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition 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 34 frame rate, whereby we see 57 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 75 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 $9.59, 1440p costs $12.61 and 4K costs $21.15.

3rd most popular game: Call of Duty Warzone - In summary, we feel that the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Call of Duty Warzone experience it will generate 140 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 110 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 74 FPS when played at High settings and down to 53 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 70 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.
