Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Nioh PC Build

Not wanting to pay over the odds for hardware we dont actually need, is a gamers primary objective when building their next PC. But obviously in this specific PC build we want to ensure enough we choose something with enough performance capability to run Nioh at 1080p ultra graphics options. We have taken a look at a whole bunch of graphics card prices today and compared them to the hardware’s gaming performance and our choice for this game is the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB. We will get into its expected FPS for this game a bit later in the article, but for now we know it will deliver reliable frame rates at ultra 1080p. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB is $159 recorded at 28th Dec 2019. Todays price is $164.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $14.01 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

The game also needs this graphics solution to deliver at least 4 GB VRAM to act as a buffer between the PC build’s video card and the processor.

This processor is currently priced at a competitive $167.87 and really works well with the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB. Bottom prices recorded for this CPU was when we saw it at $119.99, which we noticed it on 16th Mar 2020.
