Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Iron Harvest PC Build

When putting this sort of PC together we want great value for money but a machine that can deliver solid FPS on Iron Harvest at 1080p ultra graphics. We have selected the GeForce RTX 2080 Asus Dual OC 8GB today as a well placed option. The price for this card today is $529.99 which really helped mark it as a good fit.Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 18th Feb 2020 where we saw it for $529.99. Looking a little deeper at this cards pricing history shows this card has seen a drop in its price by $99.96 over the last two weeks.

We also want the graphics card to have at least 6GB VRAM onboard. The video card in this build has 8 which will act as a good data buffer between the processor and the graphics hardware.

Selecting The Right Iron Harvest 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 RTX 2080 Asus Dual OC 8GB. Looking over the prices today we can see that the Ryzen 7 3700X 8-Core 3.6GHz processor is a great choice for this game and is currently costing $304.99. Looking through our data we can see the lowest price for this cpu was on 7th Jul 2020, which had it marked up at $89.

With a price tag today of $53.99, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the Iron Harvest PC. A low price point for this motherboard would be $53.99, which we recorded it at on 25th Jun 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Iron Harvest 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 Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz. This is currently priced at $50.99 and is well priced compared to the system memory market today. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $53.99, and this was on 9th Jan 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Iron Harvest

With this current build we expect to see a return of 63 frames per second at ultra 1080p resolution in Iron Harvest. Adjust some of the graphics options and you could boost this up to 88 FPS for High graphics settings.

At some point you might want to increase your screen size from 1080p to 1440p. Iron Harvest running with this hardware on the larger screen resolution would return 48 FPS at Ultra graphics setting or possibly up to an average of 67 FPS on High settings.

How this build performs for other popular games

To ensure we are making a good choice with this Iron Harvest PC build we can check to see if it performs consistently across a variety of games. Some of the most popular games today include Marvel's Avengers, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Mafia: Definitive Edition so let’s see how this build handles them at 1080p. Starting with Marvel's Avengers we can expect to be seeing an Ultra FPS of 88 and at High settings an FPS of 123 frames. In comparison Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is likely to see an Ultra FPS of around 82, improving to 115 FPS on High settings. Lastly Mafia: Definitive Edition will see an Ultra FPS of around 61 which improves to a 85 FPS on High settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Iron Harvest

Finding a mouse for a game that falls into the Strategy, Sandbox genre group has given us reason to improve the quality of mouse we are willing to put into this PC build. We have therefore found the Cooler Master MM710 mouse that is today’s best priced, higher performing gamer mouse, and one that can still deliver the gaming quality we are after for Iron Harvest.

An Alternative Iron Harvest Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is a fan of team Nvidia, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested AMD card, the Radeon RX 5700 XT PowerColor Dual Fan 8GB. It is placed at 8% worse performance difference and certainly capable of delivering up Iron Harvest frames on a par with our primary GPU selection. We have also selected it based on its price today, which finds it at $379.99.
