Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Far Cry 6 PC Build

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play Far Cry 6 at 1080p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The GeForce RTX 2080 Asus Dual OC 8GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $529.99 that we found it marked at today. It will certainly help return suitable FPS, which we will go into a bit later in the article, at ultra 1080p. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce RTX 2080 Asus Dual OC 8GB is $529.99 recorded at 18th Feb 2020. And we can see the card has dropped its price by $99.96 during the past two weeks.

Our ideal build will need to come with either 8GB of VRAM or more than. This is used by the computer to store image data quickly as it passes image information from GPU to CPU. Our selected GeForce RTX 2080 Asus Dual OC 8GB comes with 8GB of VRAM which should cover image transfer for Far Cry 6 at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Far Cry 6 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The backbone of a pc build is the motherboard. Todays best price mobo, that gives us the Socket AM4 socket type is the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4. From here we can then put in to this game’s bespoke PC build the Ryzen 7 3700X 8-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 $329.99. Our cheapest price recorded for the Ryzen 7 3700X 8-Core 3.6GHz was $89, which we spotted on 7th Jul 2020.

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. A low recorded price for this motherboard was spotted on 18th Feb 2021 where it was $51.88.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Far Cry 6 At The Right Price

One of the more significant hardware components in this Far Cry 6 build is the RAM. We are choosing some complementary and well priced Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. It is currently priced at $42.99. While among the best priced system memory for this build it will still provide us with the ability to reach our desired FPS for the 1080p ultra setting, that we have been focusing on with this PC. 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 1080p Ultra Settings on Far Cry 6

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 85 FPS on High settings in Far Cry 6 at 1080p. 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 61.

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new Far Cry 6 PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1080p. Grand Theft Auto VI should get 61 when run on Ultra and this raises to 85 FPS on High. The popular Resident Evil 8 gets a return of 61 FPS on Ultra and then up to 85 FPS when settings are dropped to High.

Far Cry 6 Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

The Far Cry 6 is a , Shooter, 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 Far Cry 6 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

The AMD option for this build would be the 8% worse performance difference Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB graphics card and certainly a viable choice for Far Cry 6. We considered this alternative graphics solution because it was also the best price point in this performance range. It is priced at $397.99 today.
