game-debate shows requirement for which resolution... is it 1080p ?

Agreed with midknight - you can use Nvidia DSR to do so. While us with 1080p screens can do up to 4K DSR, you, Quinnton, will be able to do up to 2732x1536, which is perfectly achievable on older games with that GPU and it will also give you a vast increase in visual fidelity :) Just remember that this WILL affect your framerates: you might only get 25-30% of your max native framerate when playing at 2732x1536, so make sure your GPU can handle the game well first!

Use Nvidia's DSR. For me it's better than AA because it allows for better/higher res textures

no, you can't play games in higher resolution if your monitor don't support it, with gpu you can if you really stretch it but... it will bounce on performance.

Gaming PC build Radeon RX 470 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB, FX-6300, 12GB performance review

A PC with a FX-6300 can run 0 of the top 1000 PC games released when it also has the Radeon RX 470 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB graphics card and 12GB system memory in it. This combination of hardware leaves the FX-6300 as the weak point, when looking at what games it can play. You could upgrade that component enabling the system to run 424 games of our most demanding games list.

This PC, when compared to a popular game like Doom Eternal is a good way to review its gaming performance. In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the Radeon RX 470 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 45 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Doom Eternal then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 91 FPS or the Medium returning 71 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 48 FPS and then Ultra gets 34 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Half-Life: Alyx - In summary, while looking at Low vs Ultra settings this Radeon RX 470 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB should only play Half-Life: Alyx on a small laptop screen and probably at less than High settings.

3rd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Cyberpunk 2077 in 1440p resolution with the Radeon RX 470 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 59 FPS, Medium setting: 47 FPS, High setting: 32 FPS, Ultra setting: 23 FPS.
