I want to buy a best priced gaming PC that can run Lucius 3 on Ultra. This is what we will be looking to explore and maintain in our review page here today. So we are finding the best priced peripherals and hardware for a new PC build that can run Lucius 3 In doing this we keep in mind our need to deliver the game reliably with top tier graphics options selected, returning the visuals upon a 1080p monitor screen. These hardware items found in our build will continue to have their prices checked and components will be swapped in and out as we feel better hardware for our build is released.

We will be looking across a range of things to help evaluate this best gamer build. We will be looking across the range of best value for money components based on today’s prices. Something that can influence our peripheral selection is that the game is found in the Adventure, Puzzler, Action genres, and this can sometimes sway some of the requirements of hardware we choose. Something else to consider is that Lucius 3 would have been built on PC hardware from 2018 and shortly before this period. All interesting points for sure, but what we are really after is that we want to select components that best fit this game type but will also be today’s best value for money hardware of good enough quality to meet the game’s needs.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Lucius 3 PC Build

Choosing the graphics card needs to be done correctly and as we are putting together a gamer PC build for Lucius 3 at 1080p ultra graphics we want something with the best price today while returning the best performance for that price. This has led us to the Radeon RX 560 2GB, which has a good price at the moment, as its currently priced at $99.99. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019, which had it priced at $99.99. And with that in mind the Radeon RX 560 2GB is a great match for Lucius 3 at 1080p ultra. It will certainly help us get good FPS. we will highlight those FPS in more detail later in this article. Over the last few weeks we have noticed it increase its price by $99.99, proving that additional savings can be found you will just need to shop around.

6GB of VRAM is needed by Lucius 3. This memory acts as a super fast image storage buffer between GPU and CPU and our selected Radeon RX 560 2GB comes with 2GB of VRAM. This should be a suitable amount for our PC at this gaming resolution.

Selecting The Right Lucius 3 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a cpu is largely dependent on the right motherboard. The CPU we are going to choose has the Socket AM4 socket type. So we have found the best priced and well featured mobo in the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4. The Ryzen 5 2600 processor will then fit in and accompany our Radeon RX 560 2GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $140.09. Bottom prices recorded for this CPU was when we saw it at $59.9, which we noticed it on 7th Jul 2020.

And with the motherboard costing $53.99 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. To provide a motherboard pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 is $53.99 on 25th Jun 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Lucius 3 At The Right Price

The Lucius 3 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 1080p ultra and so the Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz which we have found for $50.99 is among the best price system memory at the moment. A price point for this RAM was down to $49.99 on 9th Jan 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Lucius 3

We reckon these hardware components in our PC build will get 26 FPS at high settings in game and you could improve the graphics up to Ultra and see a FPS of 19 at 1080p.

An Alternative Lucius 3 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are looking for a graphics card from Nvidia instead of the one we have selected in this build then you could try GeForce GTX 2050, which has a 1% worse performance difference, so still similar capabilities. We have chosen it based on its price-performance figure as well, as it is currently priced at $149.99.
