Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition, Core i5-8400 6-Core 2.8GHz, 8GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i5-8400 6-Core 2.8GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition graphics card and 8GB RAM is better performing than 732 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the 8 GB RAM as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 745 at recommended requirement.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order. In summary, while some might be tempted to play Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 98 FPS, Medium setting: 77 FPS, High setting: 52 FPS, Ultra setting: 37 FPS.

2nd 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 Gaming X 6G Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 52 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Red Dead Redemption 2 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 104 FPS or the Medium returning 82 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 55 FPS and then Ultra gets 39 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X 6G Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 48 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 97 FPS or the Medium returning 76 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 51 FPS and then Ultra gets 37 FPS.
