Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Dakar 18 PC Build

Our key objective when putting together our next gaming PC is always going to be finding a great price point for the most performance we can. Today’s build we start by looking for the right graphics card, at the right price, that can run Dakar 18 at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019, which had it priced at $229.99. Todays price is $239.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. And we can see the card has dropped its price by $47.68 during the past two weeks.

We also want the graphics card to have at least 4GB VRAM onboard. The video card in this build has 6 which will act as a good data buffer between the processor and the graphics hardware.

Selecting The Right Dakar 18 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 GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB wants a suitable good pairing when looking to run Dakar 18 well at this resolution. The Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz is currently priced at a competitive $167.87. Bottom prices recorded for this CPU was when we saw it at $119.99, which we noticed it on 16th Mar 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. 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 Dakar 18 At The Right Price

As one of the 3 main system components, when considering a PC built for Dakar 18, the correct RAM selection is obviously important. We are looking for something that is well priced but also capable of meeting the games requirements.

This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $59.99, and this was on 29th Nov 2019.
