Gaming PC build Radeon R9 290, FX-8320, 8GB performance review

A PC gaming machine that puts together a FX-8320 processor, a Radeon R9 290 GPU and 8GB system memory will be able to play 0 games from the top 1000 recommended requirements. The PC could increase the number of games it can run at recommended requirements to 54 if it upgraded its bottleneck component, the FX-8320.

The performance of these hardware components is best displayed in relation to the current most popular game, Cyberpunk 2077. To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this Radeon R9 290 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 70 FPS, 1080p High setting: 47 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 34 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 67 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 53 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: Assassins Creed: Valhalla - To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this Radeon R9 290 graphics card, but in so doing you would have to drop the graphics settings to pretty Low according to our assessment. But let the Assassins Creed: Valhalla frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 51 FPS, 1080p High setting: 44 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 30 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 46 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 39 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?

3rd most popular game: Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War - To summarise, we feel that with the Radeon R9 290 you can enjoy Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 34 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 48 FPS, and at Medium 71 FPS and then on Low it would return 91 FPS. The Radeon R9 290 would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 45 FPS.
