Obviously one of the most important components for this build is the graphics card. We can take a look at the best price to performance hardware right now to help deliver a system that can run Starlink: Battle for Atlas at 1440p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $308.14, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for Starlink: Battle for Atlas. Looking a little deeper at this cards pricing history shows this card has increased its price by $10.62 over the past two weeks. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 19th Dec 2019, which had it priced at $297.52.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas needs 8GB of VRAM to suitably store adequate amounts of image data during transfer between video card and processor. Our Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB graphics card has 8GB which will be suitable for this resolution of gaming.

Selecting The Right Starlink: Battle for Atlas 1440p Motherboard and CPU

To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Core i7-9700KF 8-Core 3.6GHz processor based around the shared LGA 1151 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Starlink: Battle for Atlas experience, that helps achieve steady frames at this resolution. The chosen cpu has itself been selected because it represents a good fit with the game and the price we found it at when comparing today’s cpu market prices, finding it currently priced at $277.99. A good point of reference is that the bottom recorded price we have for the Core i7-9700KF 8-Core 3.6GHz is $259.64 on 7th Apr 2021.

The awesome ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 is highly competitive, priced at $72.99, which provides it a position today in this gamer 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 Starlink: Battle for Atlas At The Right Price

The Starlink: Battle for Atlas PC we are building will want some supporting RAM to help our CPU and GPU selections to deliver the right FPS. We are still focusing on achieving 1440p ultra and so the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz which we have found for $42.99 is among the best price system memory at the moment. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $59.99, and this was on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1440p Ultra Settings on Starlink: Battle for Atlas

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 92 FPS on High settings in Starlink: Battle for Atlas at 1440p. There may be some lower frame rates in some parts of the game, but we have chosen the components to get some solid frame rates. Increasing the quality in the game to Ultra, will see us still getting an FPS of 66.

Other Popular Game 1440p Ultra Custom PC Builds

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running Starlink: Battle for Atlas at 4k would be pulling in about 55 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 39 if you were playing it at 4k Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new Starlink: Battle for Atlas PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1440p. Grand Theft Auto VI should get 66 when run on Ultra and this raises to 92 FPS on High. The popular Resident Evil 8 gets a return of 66 FPS on Ultra and then up to 92 FPS when settings are dropped to High. Then there is Back 4 Blood, which is popular at the moment, which is returning 66 FPS run at Ultra and 92 frames on High.

An Alternative Starlink: Battle for Atlas Graphics Card Option for 1440p
