Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 970 Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC 4GB Edition, Core i5-3470 3.2GHz, 16GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i5-3470 3.2GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 970 Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC 4GB Edition graphics card and 16GB RAM is better performing than 263 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the Core i5-3470 3.2GHz as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 703 at recommended requirement.

Lets compare todays most popular game, Red Dead Redemption 2 with this PC. In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 970 Gigabyte WindForce 3X OC 4GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 46 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Red Dead Redemption 2 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 93 FPS or the Medium returning 73 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 49 FPS and then Ultra gets 35 FPS.
