Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Dirt Rally 2 would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 47 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 65 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

To buy this Dirt Rally 2 PC we will still want it to do ok when running other popular games. So to give us an idea about our builds performance lets see how it deals these 3 popular games at 1080p. Days Gone will be expecting a Ultra FPS of 61 and a High setting FPS of 85 frames. Battlefield 2042 expects Ultra FPS around 61 which will improve to 85 FPS for High settings. Forza Horizon 5 is expected to be around 61 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 85 FPS on High settings.

An Alternative Dirt Rally 2.0 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a AMD card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Asus Dual Advanced 8GB instead, which comes with a 4% worse performance adjustment when compared to Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $379.99 at the moment.
