Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p For Honor 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 For Honor at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse ITX 4GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 5th Feb 2020, which had it priced at $123.99. Todays price is $175.45 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today.

2GB of VRAM is needed by For Honor. This memory acts as a super fast image storage buffer between GPU and CPU and our selected Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse ITX 4GB comes with 4GB of VRAM. This should be a suitable amount for our PC at this gaming resolution.

Selecting The Right For Honor 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The motherboard we are going for is the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151. Its the best priced LGA 1151 socket type motherboard on the market today and will give us the spot to choose a great pairing CPU for the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse ITX 4GB. Looking over the prices today we can see that the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz processor is a great choice for this game and is currently costing $157.5. You can get this processor for $59, which we saw it at that price on 27th May 2020. This is the lowest we have seen it at while watching processor prices.

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. A low price point for this motherboard would be $59.99, which we recorded it at on 4th Apr 2020.

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

As one of the 3 main system components, when considering a PC built for For Honor, the correct RAM selection is obviously important. We are looking for something that is well priced but also capable of meeting the games requirements. The Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is well priced at $42.99 and fits with the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz and Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse ITX 4GB selections to ensure solid FPS at 1080p ultra settings. We looked through our records and saw that the RAM prices on 29th Nov 2019, represented a low price point $30.35. Which gives us an indication of how things sit today with the RAM price

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on For Honor

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 95 FPS on High settings in For Honor at 1080p. There may be some lower frame rates in some parts of the game, but we have chosen the components to get some solid frame rates. Increasing the quality in the game to Ultra, will see us still getting an FPS of 68.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For For Honor

As For Honor falls into the , Strategy, Action, Adventure genre group, we have chosen to increase the quality of the mouse we are adding to our PC to help better meet the needs of the game. We have opted for the Cooler Master MM710, where this particular mouse is currently today’s best price but a more high performing gamer mouse than some of the other mice we normally choose in our builds.

An Alternative For Honor Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are wanting a graphics choice from the other team then our suggestion would be the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Asus Dual OC 4GB video card, currently priced at $179.67. This option has a performance of 9% worse when compared to the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse ITX 4GB and completely capable of offering a good gpu alternative.
