Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC 6GB Edition, FX-8350, 16GB performance review

When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a FX-8350 CPU with a GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC 6GB Edition GPU and 16GB RAM is more powerful than 115 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of FX-8350. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 866 games at recommended requirement.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Valorant. To summarise, this is an easy one, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC 6GB Edition solution can play Valorant at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 200+ frame rate, whereby we see 200+ frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 200+ frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, we feel that the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC 6GB Edition looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Cyberpunk 2077 experience it will generate 99 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 78 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 52 FPS when played at High settings and down to 37 FPS when turned up to Ultra on 1440p. You might still be looking for 1080p though to get some higher smoother FPS, where you could get 49 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.

3rd most popular game: Call of Duty Warzone - In summary, we feel that the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC 6GB Edition looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Call of Duty Warzone experience it will generate 120 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 94 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 64 FPS when played at High settings and down to 45 FPS when turned up to Ultra on 1440p. You might still be looking for 1080p though to get some higher smoother FPS, where you could get 60 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.
