Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Earthfall PC Build

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play Earthfall at 1080p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black 8GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $189.99 that we found it marked at today. It will certainly help return suitable FPS, which we will go into a bit later in the article, at ultra 1080p. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Jan 2020 and it was priced at $173.91. And we can see the card has dropped its price by $170 during the past two weeks.

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 Earthfall 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz processor based around the shared LGA 1151 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Earthfall 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 $159.99. Looking through our price records we noticed that this processor was seen on 16th Mar 2020 priced at $119.99.

The awesome MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 is highly competitive, priced at $49.46, which provides it a position today in this gamer build. To help give some depth to the price points for this motherboard, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 was priced at $32.99 on 28th Dec 2019.

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

One of the more significant hardware components in this Earthfall build is the RAM. We are choosing some complementary and well priced Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz. It is currently priced at $52.99. 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. The cheapest system memory price for Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz was recorded as $47.99, and this was on 30th Oct 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Earthfall

Now on to the frame rates for our Earthfall running on Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black 8GB at 1080p. We should see an average of 85 FPS on High settings or you could push up the quality to Ultra, which would get us 61 FPS.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Earthfall would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 47 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 1440p graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 65 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

Ensuring our PC build for Earthfall runs some of the more popular games of today competently at 1080p is also something worth considering. Looking at Genshin Impact we see this pc build is likely to get 52FPS on Ultra and 73FPS on High graphics settings. In contrast we can expect Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War to return 60FPS on Ultra and 83FPS when lowered to High. Another popular game at the moment is Microsoft Flight Simulator, which is 49 FPS running at Ultra, and 69 on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Earthfall

We have found a great quality and still well priced gaming mouse today with the Cooler Master MM710. A game like Earthfall that has Shooter, Online genre, we felt it necessary to increase the quality of the mouse we would consider because the game has some additional needs that can benefit from this type of higher specced mouse.

Earthfall Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

With a game like this, when considering audio options its best to pay a little more and enjoy the sort of sounds a game like this will deliver. The higher quality gaming headset we had in mind is the well priced Tritton ARK Elite 7.1, because it will cater to the Shooter, Online genre type that Earthfall sits in. While the best priced headset we can see in this category today, there are a few other differently priced options you can take a look at in our curated gaming headset list above.

An Alternative Earthfall Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are wanting a graphics choice from the other team then our suggestion would be the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB video card, currently priced at $219.99. This option has a performance of 2% better when compared to the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black 8GB and completely capable of offering a good gpu alternative.
