Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration 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 Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration at 1440p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1440p. Over the last few weeks we have noticed it increase its price by $10.62, proving that additional savings can be found you will just need to shop around. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 19th Dec 2019 which had it priced at $297.52. With a price of $308.14 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

We also want the graphics card to have at least 4GB VRAM onboard. The video card in this build has 8 which will act as a good data buffer between the processor and the graphics hardware.

Selecting The Right Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration 1440p Motherboard and CPU

The backbone of a pc build is the motherboard. Todays best price mobo, that gives us the LGA 1151 socket type is the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151. From here we can then put in to this game’s bespoke PC build the Core i3-9100T 4-Core 3.1GHz processor, which works very well in achieving the desired performance levels at a good price point. Todays price for this computer processor is $160.49.

The MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard has a cost today of $49.46 that helps find it a place in today’s Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration build. This motherboard was priced at $32.99, which we saw on 28th Dec 2019. While monitoring prices this is the lowest we have seen it at.

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

To make sure we meet the Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration system requirements and to help us achieve the required FPS for Ultra at 1440p we have chosen the HyperX Fury 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $30.99 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely. A price point for this RAM was down to $30.99 on 19th Oct 2020.

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

Selecting the right mouse for a game like Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration has encouraged us to increase the quality of the mouse we would add to our build. As the game sits in the Strategy, Action, Adventure, Puzzler genre list we felt that the Cooler Master MM710 mouse is today’s best priced but higher performing gaming mouse for this particular computer setup.

An Alternative Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration Graphics Card Option for 1440p

Perhaps you are after a Nvidia graphics card rather than the one we have added to this build. If so we would suggest the similar performing GeForce RTX 2060 Gigabyte Windforce OC 6GB, which has a 5% worse performance variation, but is still a suitable video card choice for this game. We have also considered the best value for performance based on today’s prices, with it costing $299.99 at the moment.
