Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition, Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz, 16GB performance review

When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz CPU with a GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition GPU and 16GB RAM is more powerful than 404 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 558 games at recommended requirement.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Doom Eternal. In summary, we feel that the GeForce GTX 970 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Doom Eternal experience it will generate 93 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 73 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 49 FPS when played at High settings and down to 35 FPS when turned up to Ultra on 1440p. You might still be looking for 1080p though to get some higher smoother FPS, where you could get 46 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.
