Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Onrush PC Build

Choosing the graphics card needs to be done correctly and as we are putting together a gamer PC build for Onrush at 1080p ultra graphics we want something with the best price today while returning the best performance for that price. This has led us to the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB, which has a good price at the moment, as its currently priced at $164.99. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Dec 2019 and it was priced at $159. And with that in mind the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB is a great match for Onrush at 1080p ultra. It will certainly help us get good FPS. we will highlight those FPS in more detail later in this article. Looking a little deeper at this cards pricing history shows this card has seen a drop in its price by $14.01 over the last two weeks.

Selecting The Right Onrush 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz processor based around the shared LGA 1151 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Onrush 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 $157.5. Our cheapest price recorded for the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz was $59, which we spotted on 27th May 2020.

The awesome ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 is highly competitive, priced at $72.99, which provides it a position today in this gamer build. This motherboard was priced at $59.99, which we saw on 4th Apr 2020. While monitoring prices this is the lowest we have seen it at.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Onrush 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. We looked through our records and saw that the RAM prices on 29th Nov 2019, represented a low price point $30.35. Which gives us an indication of how things sit today with the RAM price

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Onrush

Our PC build can run Onrush at High graphics settings comfortably, returning a 1080p FPS of 89 and we would expect an average of 64 FPS on Ultra with the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB, Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz combo we have put into this computer.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Onrush would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 48 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 68 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

To get a more general understanding of how our PC build for Onrush 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 Dying Light 2 is expected to achieve 64FPS on Ultra and 89FPS on High graphics settings. Next up looking at FIFA 22 we would find 64FPS on Ultra raising to 89FPS at High. For our last comparison, Forza Horizon 5, we would likely achieve 64 FPS on Ultra and 89 FPS on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Onrush Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are looking for a graphics card from Nvidia instead of the one we have selected in this build then you could try GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB, which has a 4% better performance difference, so still similar capabilities. We have chosen it based on its price-performance figure as well, as it is currently priced at $219.99.
