Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p GRAV PC Build

When selecting the right graphics card today we are specifically hunting for great price-to-performance gpus that can run GRAV in ultra 1440p. Right now the best graphics card purchase for this game is the GeForce RTX 2080, which will work really well at this screen resolution. It’s currently priced at $730.93, which puts it as one of the cheapest but best performers for this type of game. Watching this card over the past 2 weeks we have seen its price drop by $169.06, further supporting our selection in this hardware. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 and it was priced at $650.99.

When choosing the right video card for this build, you need to make sure you have a graphics card with 2GB of VRAM or more. This memory is used by the card to store image data when moving it from the video card to the CPU. Our chosen build’s card has 8GB, which will be a suitable amount for this resolution.

Selecting The Right GRAV 1440p Motherboard and CPU

To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Core i3-9100T 4-Core 3.1GHz processor based around the shared LGA 1151 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great GRAV experience, that helps achieve steady frames at this resolution. The chosen cpu has itself been selected because it represents a good fit with the game and the price we found it at when comparing today’s cpu market prices, finding it currently priced at $160.49.

With a price tag today of $72.99, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the GRAV PC. This motherboard was priced at $59.99, which we saw on 4th Apr 2020. While monitoring prices this is the lowest we have seen it at.

How To Choose The Best RAM For GRAV At The Right Price

System Memory is a significant part of any gaming computer. The build today finds the Patriot Viper Elite 16GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz to be the best price to performance RAM solution for our GRAV PC. At last reckoning we priced it up at $67.99, which is a cheap price for this amount of RAM. There are of course other options and configurations of system memory you might like to consider in your build. To provide a RAM pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the Patriot Viper Elite 16GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz is $49.99 on 30th Nov 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1440p Ultra Settings on GRAV

This computer setup should be looking at getting 125 FPS on Ultra graphics at the 1440p screen size in GRAV. We expect with a few tweaks to the settings this gaming PC will also get around 176 FPS at High settings, which will give you some frame rate performance to play around with.
