Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare PC Build

Our challenge is not overpaying for hardware we dont need, but making sure we get enough performance from our system that we can play Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB is $123.99 on 5th Feb 2020. With a price of $175.45 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

Selecting The Right Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare 1080p 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 i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz processor based around the shared LGA 1151 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare 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 $157.5. A low end price for this CPU would be $59, which we saw it priced at on 27th May 2020.

Chosen for price point, socket type and feature list, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 has a cost today of $72.99. Bottom motherboard prices recorded for this mobo was when we saw it at $59.99, on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare At The Right Price

Researching the correct system memory for our build means we need it to meet Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare requirements, with a view to running reliable FPS at Ultra settings leads us to Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. Today it is one of the best priced RAM options at $42.99 and will certainly support the CPU and GPU well. Lowest RAM prices were recorded for this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz when we saw it priced at $30.35, on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

Now on to the frame rates for our Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare running on Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB at 1080p. We should see an average of 97 FPS on High settings or you could push up the quality to Ultra, which would get us 70 FPS.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare at 1440p would be pulling in about 74 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 53 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Resident Evil 8, Grand Theft Auto VI and FIFA 22. Starting with Resident Evil 8 we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 70FPS on Ultra and 97FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Grand Theft Auto VI likely to achieve 70FPS on Ultra and 97FPS when reduced to High. Finally with FIFA 22 at Ultra setting we can expect 70 FPS, raising to 97 FPS on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

In today’s build we have chosen a higher performing mouse to better match the needs of this type of game. The Cooler Master MM710 is the best priced gaming mouse that meets our requirements.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

Now we take a look at the headsets available for our build, and with a game that comes in under this genre we want to increase the quality of the headset we pick to help us better enjoy the games audible immersion. Sifting through the prices and headsets available today brings us on to the Logitech G635 7.1 gaming headset. A comfortable and well balanced set of cones that are still available for a reasonable price. There are other headset options that we have seen and would recommend, across a variety of price points, so take a look at our list above in the PC build.

An Alternative Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Graphics Card Option for 1080p

As an alternative to the AMD manufactured video card we have gone for in this PC, you could also consider the similarly powerful Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050 Ti 4GB. It has a 8% worse performance difference compared to our selected Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB. Obviously we have chosen it as the cheapest price to performance offering in this range. It is currently priced at $139.99.
