Gaming PC build Radeon R9 280X PowerColor TurboDuo 3GB OC Edition, FX-8350, 8GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a FX-8350 processor, a Radeon R9 280X PowerColor TurboDuo 3GB OC Edition graphics card and 8GB RAM is better performing than 304 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the FX-8350 as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 331 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, while some might be tempted to play Red Dead Redemption 2 in 1440p resolution with the Radeon R9 280X PowerColor TurboDuo 3GB OC Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 73 FPS, Medium setting: 57 FPS, High setting: 39 FPS, Ultra setting: 28 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order - To summarise, the Radeon R9 280X PowerColor TurboDuo 3GB OC Edition fails to meet the very basic performance needs of the Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order

3rd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in 1440p resolution with the Radeon R9 280X PowerColor TurboDuo 3GB OC Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 73 FPS, Medium setting: 57 FPS, High setting: 39 FPS, Ultra setting: 28 FPS.
