Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 970 PNY 4GB Edition, Core i7-4770 4-Core 3.4GHz, 8GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i7-4770 4-Core 3.4GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 970 PNY 4GB Edition graphics card and 8GB RAM is better performing than 326 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the GeForce GTX 970 PNY 4GB Edition as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 617 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how this PC performs with a popular game like Horizon: Zero Dawn. In summary, while some might be tempted to play Horizon: Zero Dawn in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 970 PNY 4GB Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 115 FPS, Medium setting: 90 FPS, High setting: 61 FPS, Ultra setting: 44 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Cyberpunk 2077 in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 970 PNY 4GB Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 70 FPS, Medium setting: 55 FPS, High setting: 37 FPS, Ultra setting: 27 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Microsoft Flight Simulator - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 970 PNY 4GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 50 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Microsoft Flight Simulator then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 101 FPS or the Medium returning 79 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 53 FPS and then Ultra gets 38 FPS.
