Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition, Xeon E3-1231 v3, 16GB performance review

When looking at recommended requirements for the top 1000 most demanding PC games a PC that combines a Xeon E3-1231 v3 CPU with a GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition GPU and 16GB RAM is more powerful than 409 games specs. A gaming PC with this hardware combo has a bottleneck of Xeon E3-1231 v3. Once this component is upgraded, then the PC could run 975 games at recommended requirement.

Todays most popular game is Cyberpunk 2077, which provides a good performance benchmark for this PC’s hardware. To summarise, this is an easy one, the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition solution can play Cyberpunk 2077 at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 34 frame rate, whereby we see 57 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 75 frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $9.59, 1440p costs $12.61 and 4K costs $21.15.

2nd most popular game: Assassins Creed: Valhalla - In summary, we feel that the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p Assassins Creed: Valhalla experience it will generate 77 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 66 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 57 FPS when played at High settings and down to 39 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 51 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.

3rd most popular game: Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War - To summarise, this is an easy one, the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition solution can play Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 38 frame rate, whereby we see 64 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 84 frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $8.56, 1440p costs $11.23 and 4K costs $18.92.
