Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition, FX-8370, 16GB performance review

When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a FX-8370 CPU with a GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition GPU and 16GB RAM is more powerful than 230 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of FX-8370. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 433 games at recommended requirement.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Cyberpunk 2077. In summary, we feel that the GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Cyberpunk 2077 experience it will generate 93 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 73 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 49 FPS when played at High settings and down to 35 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 46 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.

2nd most popular game: Assassins Creed: Valhalla - In summary, this GPU, GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition, is only suitable at running Assassins Creed: Valhalla on a small screen size resolution. Probably best suited to small laptop screens. In terms of Low vs Ultra graphics settings, we recommend considering medium or high settings at best.

3rd most popular game: Microsoft Flight Simulator - In summary, we feel that the GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Microsoft Flight Simulator experience it will generate 106 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 83 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 56 FPS when played at High settings and down to 40 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 53 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.
