Finally, with a gaming score of 51.4%, this CPUs suitability for 3D gaming is above average.
Graphics44.7% is a reasonable 3D score (GTX 1070 = 100%). This GPU can handle the majority of recent games but it will struggle with resolutions greater than 1080p at ultra detail levels. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)
Boot Drive65.7% is a good SSD score. This drive enables fast boots, responsive applications and ensures minimum system IO wait times.
Memory28GB is enough RAM to run any version of Windows and it's far more than any current game requires. 28GB will also allow for large file and system caches, virtual machine hosting, software development, video editing and batch multimedia processing.
OS VersionAlthough Windows 7 is still a viable option, it's now 8 years and 10 months old. This system should be upgraded to Windows 10 which is generally faster and has an improved set of core utilities including better versions of explorer and task manager.
