Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p MotoGP 17 PC Build

Obviously one of the most important components for this build is the graphics card. We can take a look at the best price to performance hardware right now to help deliver a system that can run MotoGP 17 at 1080p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $219.99, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for MotoGP 17. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB is $219.99 on 31st Jan 2020.

Our graphics card will need 4GB of VRAM built into it to act as a suitable buffer between our video card and chosen CPU. This graphics card has 6GB which will be plenty for this game at this resolution.

Selecting The Right MotoGP 17 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We are choosing a well rounded and best priced motherboard (the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151), that can provide us with the cpu LGA 1151 socket type. This is so we can select the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz that has the best price to performance position today, at $167.87. You can get this processor for $119.99, which we saw it at that price on 16th Mar 2020. This is the lowest we have seen it at while watching processor prices.This CPU and GPU provide the required MotoGP 17 experience while maintaining the best price point at this 1080p resolution.

And with the motherboard costing $72.99 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. To provide a motherboard pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 is $59.99 on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For MotoGP 17 At The Right Price

One of the most important hardware parts of this computer is the system memory or RAM. To make sure our resolution target and frame rates are met we have chosen to put in Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. This is currently priced at $42.99 and is well priced compared to the system memory market today. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $59.99, and this was on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on MotoGP 17

This PC build has been optimized to deliver around 61 FPS at Ultra settings for MotoGP 17, while running on a 1080p screen size. While you might want to increase this to 85 FPS if you lower some of the graphics options inline with High graphics settings.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect MotoGP 17 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

To get a more general understanding of how our PC build for MotoGP 17 performs we can look in to how it copes with some of the more popular games of today at 1080p. To begin we see that Grand Theft Auto VI is expected to achieve 61FPS on Ultra and 85FPS on High graphics settings. Next up looking at Forza Horizon 5 we would find 61FPS on Ultra raising to 85FPS at High. For our last comparison, Star Citizen, we would likely achieve 61 FPS on Ultra and 85 FPS on High graphics settings.

An Alternative MotoGP 17 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are wanting a graphics choice from the other team then our suggestion would be the AMD Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB video card, currently priced at $164.99. This option has a performance of 4% worse when compared to the GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB and completely capable of offering a good gpu alternative.
