Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Fishing Planet PC Build

Obviously one of the most important components for this build is the graphics card. We can take a look at the best price to performance hardware right now to help deliver a system that can run Fishing Planet at 1080p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the Radeon RX 550X 4GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $99.88, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for Fishing Planet. Over the last few weeks we have noticed it increase its price by $99.88, proving that additional savings can be found you will just need to shop around.

Our graphics card will need 2GB of VRAM built into it to act as a suitable buffer between our video card and chosen CPU. This graphics card has 4GB which will be plenty for this game at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Fishing Planet 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The motherboard we are going for is the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4. Its the best priced Socket AM4 socket type motherboard on the market today and will give us the spot to choose a great pairing CPU for the Radeon RX 550X 4GB. Looking over the prices today we can see that the Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core 3.6GHz processor is a great choice for this game and is currently costing $199.99. A low end price for this CPU would be $56.98, which we saw it priced at on 7th Jul 2020.

The GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard has a cost today of $69.99 that helps find it a place in today’s Fishing Planet build. To offer motherboard pricing insight we spotted this being sold for a low price of $51.88, which was recorded at 18th Feb 2021.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Fishing Planet

We have found a great quality and still well priced gaming mouse today with the Cooler Master MM710. A game like Fishing Planet that has Sim, Sport, Online genre, we felt it necessary to increase the quality of the mouse we would consider because the game has some additional needs that can benefit from this type of higher specced mouse.

Fishing Planet Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

The Fishing Planet is a Sim, Sport, Online genre game and so keeping that in mind we have chosen to improve the quality of headset that we are looking at adding to this build. In light of that the clear sounds quality and improved experience offered by the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1 got our attention and today it is the best priced in its category as well. There are other options, some cheaper, that you can see by clicking our Headset selection list button above, in the build table.

An Alternative Fishing Planet Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is a fan of team AMD, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested Nvidia card, the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB. It is placed at 118% better performance difference and certainly capable of delivering up Fishing Planet frames on a par with our primary GPU selection. We have also selected it based on its price today, which finds it at $239.99.
