Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 2GB Edition, Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz, 8GB performance review

A PC with a Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz can run 182 of the top 1000 PC games released when it also has the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 2GB Edition graphics card and 8GB system memory in it. This combination of hardware leaves the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 2GB Edition as the weak point, when looking at what games it can play. You could upgrade that component enabling the system to run 454 games of our most demanding games list.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Halo: Reach. In summary, the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 2GB Edition is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for Halo: Reach, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 87 FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 66 frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 40 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 2GB Edition cant get an acceptable frame rate at small laptop resolutions.

3rd most popular game: Dragon Ball Z Kakarot - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 2GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 52 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Dragon Ball Z Kakarot then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 104 FPS or the Medium returning 82 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 55 FPS and then Ultra gets 39 FPS.
