Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration 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 Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration at 1080p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $219.99, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB is $219.99 recorded at 31st Jan 2020.

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.

Selecting The Right Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a well priced motherboard, like the one we are putting in our build today really helps tie things together in terms of performance and opens up other hardware options that become available to us later in the selection. The ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard is at a great price point and lets us select our desired LGA 1151 cpu. As the GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB wants a suitable good pairing when looking to run Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration well at this resolution. The Core i3-9100T 4-Core 3.1GHz is currently priced at a competitive $160.49.

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 recorded price for this motherboard was spotted on 4th Apr 2020 where it was $59.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration At The Right Price

One of the more significant hardware components in this Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration build is the RAM. We are choosing some complementary and well priced Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. It is currently priced at $42.99. While among the best priced system memory for this build it will still provide us with the ability to reach our desired FPS for the 1080p ultra setting, that we have been focusing on with this PC. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $59.99, and this was on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration

This PC build has been optimized to deliver around 61 FPS at Ultra settings for Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration, while running on a 1080p screen size. While you might want to increase this to 85 FPS if you lower some of the graphics options inline with High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration

As Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration falls into the , Strategy, Action, Adventure, Puzzler 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 Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is a fan of team Nvidia, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested AMD card, the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB. It is placed at 4% worse performance difference and certainly capable of delivering up Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration frames on a par with our primary GPU selection. We have also selected it based on its price today, which finds it at $164.99.
