Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Gaming 6GB Edition, Core i5-8600K 6-Core 3.6GHz, 16GB performance review

This gaming PC performance puts its 3 key components (16GB, Core i5-8600K 6-Core 3.6GHz, GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Gaming 6GB Edition) as better than 790 games from the top 1000 most demanding games of today. The hardware weak point in this gaming pc is Core i5-8600K 6-Core 3.6GHz. If this bottleneck was upgraded, then the number of games (from the top 1000 games list) it could run would increase to 826 at recommended requirement.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Cyberpunk 2077. In summary, the best resolution performance for this GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Gaming 6GB Edition looks to be 1440p. There is definitely a great 1080p Ultra result if that is more your requirement, with it pulling 64 FPS, but you certainly can move up to 1440p where we see it returning 129 FPS on Low 1440p, 102 FPS at Medium 1440p, 68 FPS on High settings and finally Ultra gets 49 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Assassins Creed: Valhalla - In summary, go with a 1080p screen res setup for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Gaming 6GB Edition. Then, when we look at the Assassins Creed: Valhalla Low vs Ultra graphics settings, we think it is best run at Medium setting or a bit higher. For comparison, the returning frame rates would look a bit like this - 1080p Medium 74 FPS, 1080p High setting: 64 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 44 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 66 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 57 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War - To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Gaming 6GB Edition card will play Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 33 frame rate, 1440p can deliver 55 FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 73 frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $9.30, 1440p costs $12.35 and 4K costs $20.58.
