Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 960 MSI OC 2GB Edition, Core i5-4570 3.2GHz, 8GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i5-4570 3.2GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 960 MSI OC 2GB Edition graphics card and 8GB RAM is better performing than 53 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the GeForce GTX 960 MSI OC 2GB Edition as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 123 at recommended requirement.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Doom Eternal. In summary, while looking at Low vs Ultra settings this GeForce GTX 960 MSI OC 2GB Edition should only play Doom Eternal on a small laptop screen and probably at less than High settings.

2nd most popular game: Half-Life: Alyx - To summarise, the GeForce GTX 960 MSI OC 2GB Edition fails to meet the very basic performance needs of the Half-Life: Alyx

3rd most popular game: Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 960 MSI OC 2GB Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 62 FPS, Medium setting: 49 FPS, High setting: 33 FPS, Ultra setting: 24 FPS.
