Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 980 EVGA ACX 2.0 4GB Edition, Core i7-4790 4-Core 3.6GHz, 16GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i7-4790 4-Core 3.6GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 980 EVGA ACX 2.0 4GB Edition graphics card and 16GB RAM is better performing than 743 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the GeForce GTX 980 EVGA ACX 2.0 4GB Edition as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 784 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how this PC performs with a popular game like Halo: Reach. In summary, if you are looking to play Halo: Reach in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The GeForce GTX 980 EVGA ACX 2.0 4GB Edition can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 144 frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 109 FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 65 FPS in Ultra as well.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Cyberpunk 2077 in 1440p resolution with the GeForce GTX 980 EVGA ACX 2.0 4GB Edition, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 91 FPS, Medium setting: 72 FPS, High setting: 48 FPS, Ultra setting: 35 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 980 EVGA ACX 2.0 4GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 50 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Red Dead Redemption 2 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 100 FPS or the Medium returning 79 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 53 FPS and then Ultra gets 38 FPS.
