Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Gravel 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 Gravel at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019 which had it priced at $169.99. Todays price is $169.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. Over the last few weeks we have noticed it increase its price by $169.99, proving that additional savings can be found you will just need to shop around.

2GB of VRAM is needed by Gravel. This memory acts as a super fast image storage buffer between GPU and CPU and our selected GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB comes with 4GB of VRAM. This should be a suitable amount for our PC at this gaming resolution.

Selecting The Right Gravel 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The motherboard we are going for is the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4. Its the best priced Socket AM4 socket type motherboard on the market today and will give us the spot to choose a great pairing CPU for the GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB. Looking over the prices today we can see that the Ryzen 5 2400G processor is a great choice for this game and is currently costing $149.99. A good point of reference is that the bottom recorded price we have for the Ryzen 5 2400G is $118.98 on 3rd Dec 2019.

The GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard has a cost today of $59.99 that helps find it a place in today’s Gravel build. This motherboard was priced at $51.88, which we saw on 18th Feb 2021. While monitoring prices this is the lowest we have seen it at.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Gravel At The Right Price

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 Gravel PC. At last reckoning we priced it up at $42.99, which is a cheap price for this amount of RAM. There are of course other options and configurations of system memory you might like to consider in your build. We looked through our records and saw that the RAM prices on 29th Nov 2019, represented a low price point $30.35. Which gives us an indication of how things sit today with the RAM price
