Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1060 MSI OC 3GB, Ryzen 5 2600, 8GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Ryzen 5 2600 processor, a GeForce GTX 1060 MSI OC 3GB graphics card and 8GB RAM is better performing than 633 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI OC 3GB as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 719 at recommended requirement.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI OC 3GB. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 46 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Red Dead Redemption 2 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 93 FPS or the Medium returning 73 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 49 FPS and then Ultra gets 35 FPS.
