Choosing the graphics card needs to be done correctly and as we are putting together a gamer PC build for Star Sonata 2 at 1080p ultra graphics we want something with the best price today while returning the best performance for that price. This has led us to the Radeon RX 560 4GB, which has a good price at the moment, as its currently priced at $107.99. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019 which had it priced at $107.99.

Selecting The Right Star Sonata 2 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 Star Sonata 2 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. You can get this processor for $59, which we saw it at that price on 27th May 2020. This is the lowest we have seen it at while watching processor prices.

Today the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 competitively costs $72.99, which provides it a place in our build today. This motherboard was priced at $59.99, which we saw on 4th Apr 2020. While monitoring prices this is the lowest we have seen it at.
