Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 100 ME 4GB Edition, FX-8350, 16GB performance review

A PC gaming machine that puts together a FX-8350 processor, a GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 100 ME 4GB Edition GPU and 16GB system memory will be able to play 72 games from the top 1000 recommended requirements. The PC could increase the number of games it can run at recommended requirements to 491 if it upgraded its bottleneck component, the FX-8350.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Cyberpunk 2077. To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 100 ME 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 Cyberpunk 2077 frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 62 FPS, 1080p High setting: 42 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 30 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 60 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 48 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?

2nd most popular game: Hyper Scape - To summarise, we feel that with the GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 100 ME 4GB Edition you can enjoy Hyper Scape at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 40 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 56 FPS, and at Medium 83 FPS and then on Low it would return 106 FPS. The GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 100 ME 4GB Edition would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 53 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Assassins Creed: Valhalla - In summary, here we are looking at a GPU that can only really run Assassins Creed: Valhalla at small laptop size screen resolutions. As for graphics settings, low vs ultra, we suggest around Medium to high at best for the GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 100 ME 4GB Edition.
