Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1050 MSI OC 2GB, Core i5-3470 3.2GHz, 8GB performance review

A PC with a Core i5-3470 3.2GHz can run 94 of the top 1000 PC games released when it also has the GeForce GTX 1050 MSI OC 2GB graphics card and 8GB system memory in it. This combination of hardware leaves the Core i5-3470 3.2GHz as the weak point, when looking at what games it can play. You could upgrade that component enabling the system to run 140 games of our most demanding games list.

Lets compare todays most popular game, Halo: Reach with this PC. In summary, the GeForce GTX 1050 MSI OC 2GB is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for Halo: Reach, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 87 FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 66 frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 39 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, the GeForce GTX 1050 MSI OC 2GB cant get an acceptable frame rate at small laptop resolutions.

3rd most popular game: Dragon Ball Z Kakarot - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1050 MSI OC 2GB. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 51 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Dragon Ball Z Kakarot then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 103 FPS or the Medium returning 81 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 54 FPS and then Ultra gets 39 FPS.
