Gaming PC build Radeon R9 290X Asus DirectCU II OC Edition, Core i5-4460 3.2GHz, 8GB performance review

A PC with a Core i5-4460 3.2GHz can run 0 of the top 1000 PC games released when it also has the Radeon R9 290X Asus DirectCU II OC Edition graphics card and 8GB system memory in it. This combination of hardware leaves the Core i5-4460 3.2GHz as the weak point, when looking at what games it can play. You could upgrade that component enabling the system to run 385 games of our most demanding games list.

This PC, when compared to a popular game like Cyberpunk 2077 is a good way to review its gaming performance. In summary, while some might be tempted to play Cyberpunk 2077 in 1440p resolution with the Radeon R9 290X Asus DirectCU II OC Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 62 FPS, Medium setting: 49 FPS, High setting: 33 FPS, Ultra setting: 24 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Horizon: Zero Dawn - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the Radeon R9 290X Asus DirectCU II OC Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 47 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Horizon: Zero Dawn then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 95 FPS or the Medium returning 75 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 50 FPS and then Ultra gets 36 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Valorant - In summary, the Radeon R9 290X Asus DirectCU II OC Edition is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for Valorant, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 200+ FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 200+ frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 200+ FPS.
