    Rebuilt PC; looking for games to run on it

    Today I rebuilt my PC with new mobo, CPU, video card, and SSD.


    AMD Radeon R9 285 2 GB GDDR5 (170 GB/s bandwidth)
    Intel Core i7 4790k @ 4.0 GHz
    Crucial 512 GB SSD

    Anyways, I want to test this thing out on some games. On Minecraft I get about 600 FPS on default settings.

    If you really want to test it out, I'd recommend Watch Dogs on Ultra textures. That game even gives my dual 290s a hard time.

    There's really no game out right now that won't run on that system. As for recommendations, I really can't recommend any as I don't know the type of games you're into.

    For reference though, I'm currently playing Wolfenstein: The New Order, and it runs pretty good on my system which isn't too far from yours. See my system specs.

    Good luck.

    Battlefield-4 with ultra-settings @1920x1080 should push it a bit.

    Metro and The Witcher series of games are widely known for their demanding, yet beautiful graphics.
