Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p A Plague Tale: Innocence 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 A Plague Tale: Innocence at 1440p 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 1440p. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 and it was 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. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $47.68 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

A Plague Tale: Innocence needs 4GB of VRAM to suitably store adequate amounts of image data during transfer between video card and processor. Our GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB graphics card has 6GB which will be suitable for this resolution of gaming.

Selecting The Right A Plague Tale: Innocence 1440p 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 i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz processor, which works very well in achieving the desired performance levels at a good price point. Todays price for this computer processor is $157.5. A low end price for this CPU would be $59, which we saw it priced at on 27th May 2020.

Chosen for price point, socket type and feature list, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 has a cost today of $72.99. To provide a motherboard pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 is $59.99 on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For A Plague Tale: Innocence 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. To provide a bit of system memory pricing insight, we spotted this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz being sold for a low price of $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1440p Ultra Settings on A Plague Tale: Innocence

With our key performance components in place we are expecting to see this setup running A Plague Tale: Innocence at around 54 average frames per second, on 1440p screen resolution. This should be achieved on ultra graphics settings. If you turn a few graphics options down we expect around 76 FPS at high graphics.
