Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p The Outer Worlds 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 The Outer Worlds at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo 6GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. Over the past couple of weeks this card has seen a price drop of $47.68, which lends us confidence in picking it as a good purchase for this game. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019 which had it priced at $229.99. With a price of $239.99 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

Selecting The Right The Outer Worlds 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Getting the motherboard selection right in this build helps us go on to choose a compatible cpu. With a good price today we find the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 with its LGA 1151 socket enables us to select the Core i7-9700F 8-Core 3.0GHz, which is priced right now at $264. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 2nd Dec 2020 where we saw it for $209.99.Now we have a great pairing in this rig allowing the CPU and GPU to work well together to get a solid The Outer Worlds experience for the best price point at 1080p.

Looking at motherboard prices and features the competitively priced $72.99 ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 certainly takes a well-deserved place in our build. A low price point for this motherboard would be $59.99, which we recorded it at on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For The Outer Worlds At The Right Price

System Memory is a significant part of any gaming computer. The build today finds the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz to be the best price to performance RAM solution for our The Outer Worlds PC. At last reckoning we priced it up at $42.99, which is a cheap price for this amount of RAM. There are of course other options and configurations of system memory you might like to consider in your build. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $59.99, and this was on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on The Outer Worlds

Running a PC build with these hardware components for The Outer Worlds we expect to see about a 88 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 63 at 1080p.
