When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz CPU with a GeForce GTX 960 Asus Strix DirectCU II OC 2GB Edition GPU and 16GB RAM is more powerful than 251 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of GeForce GTX 960 Asus Strix DirectCU II OC 2GB Edition. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 499 games at recommended requirement.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. In summary, this GPU, GeForce GTX 960 Asus Strix DirectCU II OC 2GB Edition, is only suitable at running Red Dead Redemption 2 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.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, this GPU, GeForce GTX 960 Asus Strix DirectCU II OC 2GB Edition, is only suitable at running Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on a small screen size resolution.

Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.
