Exploring the price trends for this card shows us it has increased its price by $9.91 over the past two weeks, so perhaps there is still deals that can be found on this card.

Selecting The Right Diablo 4 1440p Motherboard and CPU

We have selected a GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard to allow us to then go on and add a great cpu for this Diablo 4 build. With a Socket AM4 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Ryzen 5 2600, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $185.99 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. You can get this processor for $59.9, which we saw it at that price on 7th Jul 2020.

System Memory is a significant part of any gaming computer. The build today finds the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz to be the best price to performance RAM solution for our Diablo 4 PC.

There are of course other options and configurations of system memory you might like to consider in your build. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $51.88, and this was on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1440p Ultra Settings on Diablo 4

This computer setup should be looking at getting 47 FPS on Ultra graphics at the 1440p screen size in Diablo 4. We expect with a few tweaks to the settings this gaming PC will also get around 65 FPS at High settings, which will give you some frame rate performance to play around with.

An Alternative Diablo 4 Graphics Card Option for 1440p

The Nvidia option for this build would be the 4% worse performance difference GeForce RTX 2070 Asus Dual Advanced 8GB graphics card and certainly a viable choice for Diablo 4. We considered this alternative graphics solution because it was also the best price point in this performance range. It is priced at $379.99 today.
