Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p SOS PC Build

When selecting the right graphics card today we are specifically hunting for great price-to-performance gpus that can run SOS in ultra 1080p. Right now the best graphics card purchase for this game is the GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB, which will work really well at this screen resolution. It’s currently priced at $219.99, which puts it as one of the cheapest but best performers for this type of game. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 31st Jan 2020 where we saw it for $219.99.

We were looking to get a video card with at least 4GB of VRAM available onboard it, which acts an image data buffer between our video card and CPU. The GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB has 6GB, which is suitable at this resolution.

Selecting The Right SOS 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The backbone of a pc build is the motherboard. Todays best price mobo, that gives us the LGA 1151 socket type is the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151. From here we can then put in to this game’s bespoke PC build the Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz processor, which works very well in achieving the desired performance levels at a good price point. Todays price for this computer processor is $200. A good point of reference is that the bottom recorded price we have for the Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz is $161.03 on 1st Dec 2020.

Looking at motherboard prices and features the competitively priced $72.99 ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 certainly takes a well-deserved place in our build. To offer motherboard pricing insight we spotted this being sold for a low price of $59.99, which was recorded at 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For SOS At The Right Price

Our SOS built PC needs some solid performing RAM to enable us to meet the game’s system requirement expectations and achieve the desired FPS at ultra 1080p. The Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is capable of meeting those needs, while complementing the Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz and GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB of our build and priced at a reasonable $42.99. A low price point for this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz was spotted on 29th Nov 2019, where we saw it at $30.35.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on SOS

So now that our core components are all in place we would expect to see around 61 FPS in SOS at 1080p resolution, on Ultra settings. Make some adjustments to the graphics options and you could boost this up to 85 FPS for High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For SOS

We opted for this higher quality gaming mouse, Cooler Master MM710, because it would cater to the , Online, Action genre type that SOS sits in. This is still the best priced mouse we had in our lists today, just a better quality peripheral than we might normally consider.

SOS Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

With a game like this, (which falls in the , Online, Action genre group) we wanted to make sure the audio solution we go with was up to the task. A game like SOS has encouraged us to increase the quality of the headset we choose as it will return a much better experience overall. Looking through the hardware lists available and reviewing today’s prices we felt that the Logitech G635 7.1 headset is the right way to go, delivering some great audio, clear, reliable, while still being the best priced mid range headset. We have a selection list for headsets above if you would like to consider some other options we have seen at a good price today.

An Alternative SOS Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a Nvidia card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the AMD Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB instead, which comes with a 4% worse performance adjustment when compared to GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $164.99 at the moment.
