Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Chernobylite PC Build

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play Chernobylite at 1080p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $239.99 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. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019 which had it priced at $229.99. And we can see the card has dropped its price by $47.68 during the past two weeks.

Our graphics card will need 4GB of VRAM built into it to act as a suitable buffer between our video card and chosen CPU. This graphics card has 6GB which will be plenty for this game at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Chernobylite 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We have selected a GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard to allow us to then go on and add a great cpu for this Chernobylite build. With a Socket AM4 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Ryzen 5 2600, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $185.99 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. You can get this processor for $59.9, which we saw it at that price on 7th Jul 2020. This is the lowest we have seen it at while watching processor prices.

With the feature rich GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 priced competitively at $59.99 it is certainly in todays Chernobylite build for a good reason. The cheapest motherboard price for the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 was recorded as $51.88, which was on 18th Feb 2021.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Chernobylite At The Right Price

Our PC needs some well placed system memory to support our chosen CPU and GPU selections. As we are looking to achieve the 1080p ultra frame rates the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is currently priced at $42.99, which is among the better priced RAM today. Lowest RAM prices were recorded for this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz when we saw it priced at $30.35, on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Chernobylite

Now on to the frame rates for our Chernobylite running on GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB at 1080p. We should see an average of 88 FPS on High settings or you could push up the quality to Ultra, which would get us 63 FPS.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Chernobylite would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 48 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 67 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

Ensuring our PC build for Chernobylite runs some of the more popular games of today competently at 1080p is also something worth considering. Looking at Resident Evil 8 we see this pc build is likely to get 63FPS on Ultra and 88FPS on High graphics settings. In contrast we can expect Forza Horizon 5 to return 63FPS on Ultra and 88FPS when lowered to High. Another popular game at the moment is Grand Theft Auto VI, which is 63 FPS running at Ultra, and 88 on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Chernobylite Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Why not switch out the graphics card in this build and replace it with a similarly powerful card from AMD. The AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB graphics card has a 7% better performance variation compared to the currently chosen video card. As the best price point for an alternative manufacturer in this range it currently costs $899.98.
