Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition, Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz, 16GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition graphics card and 16GB RAM is better performing than 71 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 901 at recommended requirement.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Grand Theft Auto VI. In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 49 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Grand Theft Auto VI then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 98 FPS or the Medium returning 77 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 52 FPS and then Ultra gets 37 FPS.

2nd most popular game: New World - In summary, if you are looking to play New World in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 77 frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 59 FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 35 FPS in Ultra as well.

3rd most popular game: Resident Evil 8 - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 53 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Resident Evil 8 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 106 FPS or the Medium returning 83 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 56 FPS and then Ultra gets 40 FPS.
