Gaming PC build Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D Black Edition, Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz, 16GB performance review

This gaming PC performance puts its 3 key components (16GB, Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz, Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D Black Edition) as better than 79 games from the top 1000 most demanding games of today. The hardware weak point in this gaming pc is Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D Black Edition. If this bottleneck was upgraded, then the number of games (from the top 1000 games list) it could run would increase to 331 at recommended requirement.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Cyberpunk 2077. To summarise, the Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D Black Edition fails to meet the very basic performance needs of the Cyberpunk 2077

2nd most popular game: Horizon: Zero Dawn - In summary, go with a 1080p screen res setup for the Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D Black Edition. Then, when we look at the Horizon: Zero Dawn 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 62 FPS, 1080p High setting: 42 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 30 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 60 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 48 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Valorant - To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the Radeon R9 280X XFX Double D Black Edition card will play Valorant at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 166 frame rate, 1440p can deliver 200+ FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 200+ 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.
