According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i5-2400 3.1GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 960 MSI OC 2GB Edition graphics card and 8GB RAM is better performing than 107 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the Core i5-2400 3.1GHz as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 293 at recommended requirement.
