Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Crackdown 3 PC Build

Our key objective when putting together our next gaming PC is always going to be finding a great price point for the most performance we can. Today’s build we start by looking for the right graphics card, at the right price, that can run Crackdown 3 at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black 8GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Jan 2020 and it was priced at $173.91. Todays price is $189.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. Watching this card over the past 2 weeks we have seen its price drop by $170, further supporting our selection in this hardware.

Crackdown 3 needs 4GB of VRAM to suitably store adequate amounts of image data during transfer between video card and processor. Our Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black 8GB graphics card has 8GB which will be suitable for this resolution of gaming.

Selecting The Right Crackdown 3 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a well priced motherboard, like the one we are putting in our build today really helps tie things together in terms of performance and opens up other hardware options that become available to us later in the selection. The ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard is at a great price point and lets us select our desired LGA 1151 cpu. As the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black 8GB wants a suitable good pairing when looking to run Crackdown 3 well at this resolution. The Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz is currently priced at a competitive $200. Bottom prices recorded for this CPU was when we saw it at $161.03, which we noticed it on 1st Dec 2020.

Looking at motherboard prices and features the competitively priced $72.99 ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 certainly takes a well-deserved place in our build. Our motherboard price records put this mobo’s price on 4th Apr 2020 at $59.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Crackdown 3 At The Right Price

One of the more significant hardware components in this Crackdown 3 build is the RAM. We are choosing some complementary and well priced Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. It is currently priced at $42.99. While among the best priced system memory for this build it will still provide us with the ability to reach our desired FPS for the 1080p ultra setting, that we have been focusing on with this PC. To provide a RAM pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Crackdown 3

Our PC build can run Crackdown 3 at High graphics settings comfortably, returning a 1080p FPS of 85 and we would expect an average of 61 FPS on Ultra with the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black 8GB, Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz combo we have put into this computer.

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running Crackdown 3 at 1440p would be pulling in about 65 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 47 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new Crackdown 3 PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1080p. Days Gone should get 61 when run on Ultra and this raises to 85 FPS on High. The popular Resident Evil 8 gets a return of 61 FPS on Ultra and then up to 85 FPS when settings are dropped to High. Then there is Dying Light 2, which is popular at the moment, which is returning 61 FPS run at Ultra and 85 frames on High.
