Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 970 EVGA SSC ACX 2.0 4GB Edition, Core i5-3470 3.2GHz, 12GB performance review

A PC gaming machine that puts together a Core i5-3470 3.2GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 970 EVGA SSC ACX 2.0 4GB Edition GPU and 12GB system memory will be able to play 154 games from the top 1000 recommended requirements. The PC could increase the number of games it can run at recommended requirements to 681 if it upgraded its bottleneck component, the Core i5-3470 3.2GHz.

Lets compare todays most popular game, Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip with this PC. To summarise, we feel that with the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA SSC ACX 2.0 4GB Edition you can enjoy Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 41 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 57 FPS, and at Medium 85 FPS and then on Low it would return 108 FPS. The GeForce GTX 970 EVGA SSC ACX 2.0 4GB Edition would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 54 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - To summarise, we feel that with the GeForce GTX 970 EVGA SSC ACX 2.0 4GB Edition you can enjoy Red Dead Redemption 2 at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 36 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 50 FPS, and at Medium 75 FPS and then on Low it would return 95 FPS. The GeForce GTX 970 EVGA SSC ACX 2.0 4GB Edition would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 47 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this GeForce GTX 970 EVGA SSC ACX 2.0 4GB Edition graphics card, but in so doing you would have to drop the graphics settings to pretty Low according to our assessment. But let the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 90 FPS, 1080p High setting: 61 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 44 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 88 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 69 FPS. Our Low vs Ultra analysis tells us that you would be better placed running this at 1080p, but at least you could still tinker with graphics settings for 1440p to perhaps be passable?
