According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz processor, a Radeon R9 290X Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition graphics card and 16GB RAM is better performing than 483 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the Radeon R9 290X Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 913 at recommended requirement.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the Radeon R9 290X Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 47 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Red Dead Redemption 2 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 94 FPS or the Medium returning 74 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 50 FPS and then Ultra gets 35 FPS.

The Radeon R9 290X Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 147 frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 112 FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 67 FPS in Ultra as well.

3rd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Cyberpunk 2077 in 1440p resolution with the Radeon R9 290X Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 61 FPS, Medium setting: 48 FPS, High setting: 32 FPS, Ultra setting: 23 FPS.
