Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition, Core i5-4590 3.3GHz, 8GB performance review

This gaming PC performance puts its 3 key components (8GB, Core i5-4590 3.3GHz, GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition) as better than 322 games from the top 1000 most demanding games of today. The hardware weak point in this gaming pc is Core i5-4590 3.3GHz. If this bottleneck was upgraded, then the number of games (from the top 1000 games list) it could run would increase to 588 at recommended requirement.

This PC, when compared to a popular game like Halo: Reach is a good way to review its gaming performance. To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition card will play Halo: Reach at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 60 frame rate, 1440p can deliver 101 FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 132 frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.

2nd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - In summary, the best resolution performance for this GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition looks to be 1440p. There is definitely a great 1080p Ultra result if that is more your requirement, with it pulling 45 FPS, but you certainly can move up to 1440p where we see it returning 91 FPS on Low 1440p, 71 FPS at Medium 1440p, 48 FPS on High settings and finally Ultra gets 34 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - In summary, go with a 1080p screen res setup for the GeForce GTX 970 Zotac 4GB Edition. Then, when we look at the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Low vs Ultra graphics settings, we think it is best run at Medium setting or a bit higher. For comparison, the returning frame rates would look a bit like this - 1080p Medium 86 FPS, 1080p High setting: 58 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 42 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 84 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 66 FPS.
