Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Mosaic 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 Mosaic at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the Radeon RX 560 4GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. Exploring the price trends for this card shows us it has increased its price by $107.99 over the past two weeks, so perhaps there is still deals that can be found on this card. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 where we saw it for $107.99. With a price of $107.99 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

Selecting The Right Mosaic 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a well priced motherboard, like the one we are putting in our build today really helps tie things together in terms of performance and opens up other hardware options that become available to us later in the selection. The ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard is at a great price point and lets us select our desired LGA 1151 cpu. As the Radeon RX 560 4GB wants a suitable good pairing when looking to run Mosaic well at this resolution. The Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz is currently priced at a competitive $157.5. Bottom prices recorded for this CPU was when we saw it at $59, which we noticed it on 27th May 2020.

And with the motherboard costing $72.99 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. To offer motherboard pricing insight we spotted this being sold for a low price of $59.99, which was recorded at 4th Apr 2020.

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

This is part of the gamers 3 core hardware components. Our Mosaic built PC will need a correct amount of RAM while being found for the best price today.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running Mosaic at 1440p would be pulling in about 66 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 47 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

When buying a gaming PC for a specific game we still expect it to run other popular games. So as a benchmark lets see how well todays best priced PC build can deal with these 3 games at 1080p. Star Citizen should get 62 FPS at Ultra settings and this goes up to 87 frames at High settings. Back 4 Blood can get an Ultra FPS of 62 FPS and increases to 87 FPS for High. Grand Theft Auto VI is expected to be around 62 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 87 FPS on High settings.

An Alternative Mosaic Graphics Card Option for 1080p

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050 graphics card has a 4% worse performance variation compared to the currently chosen video card. As the best price point for an alternative manufacturer in this range it currently costs $149.99.
