Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p Flight Sim World PC Build

Choosing the graphics card needs to be done correctly and as we are putting together a gamer PC build for Flight Sim World at 1440p ultra graphics we want something with the best price today while returning the best performance for that price. This has led us to the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, which has a good price at the moment, as its currently priced at $239.99. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 and it was priced at $229.99. And with that in mind the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB is a great match for Flight Sim World at 1440p ultra. It will certainly help us get good FPS. we will highlight those FPS in more detail later in this article. Watching this card over the past 2 weeks we have seen its price drop by $47.68, further supporting our selection in this hardware.

Our ideal build will need to come with either 4GB of VRAM or more than. This is used by the computer to store image data quickly as it passes image information from GPU to CPU. Our selected GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB comes with 6GB of VRAM which should cover image transfer for Flight Sim World at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Flight Sim World 1440p Motherboard and CPU

ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard is today’s best buy mobo, that also provides us with the LGA 1151 cpu socket type. Which is ideal for the best performance to price processor we have seen for our build, the Core i7-9700F 8-Core 3.0GHz. This processor is currently priced at a competitive $264 and really works well with the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB. The cheapest price we spotted this cpu for is $209.99, which was on 2nd Dec 2020.

With the feature rich ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 priced competitively at $72.99 it is certainly in todays Flight Sim World build for a good reason. A low price point for this motherboard would be $59.99, which we recorded it at on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Flight Sim World At The Right Price

To make sure we meet the Flight Sim World system requirements and to help us achieve the required FPS for Ultra at 1440p we have chosen the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $42.99 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely. Lowest RAM prices were recorded for this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz when we saw it priced at $30.35, on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1440p Ultra Settings on Flight Sim World

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 76 FPS on High settings in Flight Sim World at 1440p. There may be some lower frame rates in some parts of the game, but we have chosen the components to get some solid frame rates. Increasing the quality in the game to Ultra, will see us still getting an FPS of 54.
