Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p The Division 2 PC Build

When putting this sort of PC together we want great value for money but a machine that can deliver solid FPS on The Division 2 at 1080p ultra graphics. We have selected the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB today as a well placed option. The price for this card today is $435.61 which really helped mark it as a good fit.The lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB is $426.41 recorded at 22nd Dec 2019. Over the past couple of weeks this card has seen a price drop of $159.23, which lends us confidence in picking it as a good purchase for this game.

We also want the graphics card to have at least 11GB 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 The Division 2 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 GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard is at a great price point and lets us select our desired Socket AM4 cpu. As the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB wants a suitable good pairing when looking to run The Division 2 well at this resolution. The Ryzen 7 3700X 8-Core 3.6GHz is currently priced at a competitive $329.99. Giving us a bit more of an insight we saw this processor being sold for a low price of $89, which was on 7th Jul 2020.

Having the competitive price tag of $59.99, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard’s strong price point today helps it stay in this The Division 2 PC build. A low price point for this motherboard would be $51.88, which we recorded it at on 18th Feb 2021.

How To Choose The Best RAM For The Division 2 At The Right Price

Researching the correct system memory for our build means we need it to meet The Division 2 requirements, with a view to running reliable FPS at Ultra settings leads us to Patriot Viper Elite 16GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz. Today it is one of the best priced RAM options at $67.99 and will certainly support the CPU and GPU well. A price point for this RAM was down to $49.99 on 30th Nov 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on The Division 2

Running a PC build with these hardware components for The Division 2 we expect to see about a 135 FPS average, with a few low frame rates in some of the more intense scenes. You could up the quality of game graphics to Ultra, which will see the FPS drop to 97 at 1080p.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Tom Clancy's The Division would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 74 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 103 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new Tom Clancy's The Division PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1080p. Battlefield 2042 should get 97 when run on Ultra and this raises to 135 FPS on High. The popular Far Cry 6 gets a return of 97 FPS on Ultra and then up to 135 FPS when settings are dropped to High. Then there is Resident Evil 8, which is popular at the moment, which is returning 97 FPS run at Ultra and 135 frames on High.

The Division 2 Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

With a game like this, (which falls in the , Shooter, RPG, 3rd Person genre group) we wanted to make sure the audio solution we go with was up to the task. A game like The Division 2 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.

This option has a performance of 5% worse when compared to the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB and completely capable of offering a good gpu alternative.
