Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 970 Asus DirectCU Mini OC 4GB Edition, Core i7-2600 4-Core 3.40GHz, 8GB performance review

This gaming PC performance puts its 3 key components (8GB, Core i7-2600 4-Core 3.40GHz, GeForce GTX 970 Asus DirectCU Mini OC 4GB Edition) as better than 335 games from the top 1000 most demanding games of today. The hardware weak point in this gaming pc is Core i7-2600 4-Core 3.40GHz. If this bottleneck was upgraded, then the number of games (from the top 1000 games list) it could run would increase to 591 at recommended requirement.

This PC performance in relation to a popular game like Cyberpunk 2077 is a good way to review its hardware capability. In summary, go with a 1080p screen res setup for the GeForce GTX 970 Asus DirectCU Mini OC 4GB Edition. Then, when we look at the Cyberpunk 2077 Low vs Ultra graphics settings, we think it is best run at Medium setting or a bit higher. For comparison, the returning frame rates would look a bit like this - 1080p Medium 61 FPS, 1080p High setting: 41 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 30 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 59 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 47 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - In summary, the best resolution performance for this GeForce GTX 970 Asus DirectCU Mini OC 4GB Edition looks to be 1440p. There is definitely a great 1080p Ultra result if that is more your requirement, with it pulling 46 FPS, but you certainly can move up to 1440p where we see it returning 92 FPS on Low 1440p, 72 FPS at Medium 1440p, 49 FPS on High settings and finally Ultra gets 35 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Dragon Ball Z Kakarot - To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the GeForce GTX 970 Asus DirectCU Mini OC 4GB Edition card will play Dragon Ball Z Kakarot at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 36 frame rate, 1440p can deliver 60 FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 79 frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.
