Gaming PC build Radeon R9 290 Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition, FX-8350, 16GB performance review

A PC gaming machine that puts together a FX-8350 processor, a Radeon R9 290 Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition GPU and 16GB system memory will be able to play 308 games from the top 1000 recommended requirements. The PC could increase the number of games it can run at recommended requirements to 522 if it upgraded its bottleneck component, the FX-8350.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order. To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this Radeon R9 290 Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition graphics card, but in so doing you would have to drop the graphics settings to pretty Low according to our assessment. But let the Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 46 FPS, 1080p High setting: 31 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 22 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 44 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 35 FPS. Our Low vs Ultra analysis tells us that you would be better placed running this at 1080p, but at least you could still tinker with graphics settings for 1440p to perhaps be passable?

2nd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - To summarise, we feel that with the Radeon R9 290 Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition you can enjoy Red Dead Redemption 2 at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 34 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 48 FPS, and at Medium 71 FPS and then on Low it would return 90 FPS. The Radeon R9 290 Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 45 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - To summarise, we feel that with the Radeon R9 290 Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition you can enjoy Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 34 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 48 FPS, and at Medium 71 FPS and then on Low it would return 90 FPS. The Radeon R9 290 Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC Edition would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 45 FPS.
