Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 PC Build

Our key objective when putting together our next gaming PC is always going to be finding a great price point for the most performance we can. Today’s build we start by looking for the right graphics card, at the right price, that can run Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the Radeon RX 550X 4GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. Todays price is $99.88 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. Its price over the past couple of weeks has increased a bit by $99.88, which makes us think additional savings can be made here if you shop around.

Our ideal build will need to come with either 2GB of VRAM or more than. This is used by the computer to store image data quickly as it passes image information from GPU to CPU. Our selected Radeon RX 550X 4GB comes with 4GB of VRAM which should cover image transfer for Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Getting the motherboard selection right in this build helps us go on to choose a compatible cpu. With a good price today we find the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 with its Socket AM4 socket enables us to select the Ryzen 3 3200G, which is priced right now at $89.99. The cheapest price we spotted this cpu for is $87, which was on 28th Nov 2019.Now we have a great pairing in this rig allowing the CPU and GPU to work well together to get a solid Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 experience for the best price point at 1080p.

Looking at motherboard prices and features the competitively priced $54.99 GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 certainly takes a well-deserved place in our build. To help give some depth to the price points for this motherboard, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 was priced at $54.99 on 29th Nov 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 At The Right Price

One of the more significant hardware components in this Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 build is the RAM. We are choosing some complementary and well priced Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz. It is currently priced at $32.99. 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.

An Alternative Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is a fan of team AMD, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested Nvidia card, the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB.
