Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p Halo Infinite PC Build

Our challenge is not overpaying for hardware we dont need, but making sure we get enough performance from our system that we can play Halo Infinite at 1440p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Gaming Trio 11GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1440p. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $50.67 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Gaming Trio 11GB is $1140.16 recorded at 29th Dec 2019. With a price of $1140.16 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

Our PC build has 11GB of onboard card memory to act as an image data store between the GPU and CPU. At this resolution the game will need at least 8GB of VRAM from our PC build. So with the selected GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Gaming Trio 11GB we have met that graphical requirement.

Selecting The Right Halo Infinite 1440p Motherboard and CPU

GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard is today’s best buy mobo, that also provides us with the Socket AM4 cpu socket type. Which is ideal for the best performance to price processor we have seen for our build, the Ryzen 9 3900X 12-Core 3.8GHz. This processor is currently priced at a competitive $479.99 and really works well with the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Gaming Trio 11GB. You can get this processor for $139, which we saw it at that price on 7th Jul 2020. This is the lowest we have seen it at while watching processor prices.

Looking at motherboard prices and features the competitively priced $59.99 GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 certainly takes a well-deserved place in our build. Bottom motherboard prices recorded for this mobo was when we saw it at $51.88, on 18th Feb 2021.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Halo Infinite At The Right Price

The Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is well priced at $42.99 and fits with the Ryzen 9 3900X 12-Core 3.8GHz and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Gaming Trio 11GB selections to ensure solid FPS at 1440p ultra settings.

In today’s build we have chosen a higher performing mouse to better match the needs of this type of game. The Cooler Master MM710 is the best priced gaming mouse that meets our requirements.

Halo Infinite Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

The Halo Infinite is a , Shooter, Online, Action genre game and so keeping that in mind we have chosen to improve the quality of headset that we are looking at adding to this build. In light of that the clear sounds quality and improved experience offered by the Logitech G635 7.1 got our attention and today it is the best priced in its category as well.

An Alternative Halo Infinite Graphics Card Option for 1440p

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 6700 XT 12GB instead, which comes with a 3% better performance adjustment when compared to GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Gaming Trio 11GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $1288 at the moment.
