Gaming PC build Radeon R9 290X MSI Gaming Edition, FX-8350, 16GB performance review

This gaming PC performance puts its 3 key components (16GB, FX-8350, Radeon R9 290X MSI Gaming Edition) as better than 316 games from the top 1000 most demanding games of today. The hardware weak point in this gaming pc is FX-8350. If this bottleneck was upgraded, then the number of games (from the top 1000 games list) it could run would increase to 565 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, the best resolution performance for this Radeon R9 290X MSI Gaming Edition looks to be 1440p. There is definitely a great 1080p Ultra result if that is more your requirement, with it pulling 47 FPS, but you certainly can move up to 1440p where we see it returning 94 FPS on Low 1440p, 74 FPS at Medium 1440p, 50 FPS on High settings and finally Ultra gets 35 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, the best resolution performance for this Radeon R9 290X MSI Gaming Edition looks to be 1440p. There is definitely a great 1080p Ultra result if that is more your requirement, with it pulling 47 FPS, but you certainly can move up to 1440p where we see it returning 94 FPS on Low 1440p, 74 FPS at Medium 1440p, 50 FPS on High settings and finally Ultra gets 35 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Death Stranding - In summary, go with a 1080p screen res setup for the Radeon R9 290X MSI Gaming Edition. Then, when we look at the Death Stranding Low vs Ultra graphics settings, we think it is best run at Medium setting or a bit higher. For comparison, the returning frame rates would look a bit like this - 1080p Medium 51 FPS, 1080p High setting: 34 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 25 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 49 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 39 FPS.
