Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Back 4 Blood PC Build

Our key objective when putting together our next gaming PC is always going to be finding a great price point for the most performance we can. Today’s build we start by looking for the right graphics card, at the right price, that can run Back 4 Blood at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 and it was priced at $229.99. Todays price is $239.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. 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.

Our PC build has 6GB of onboard card memory to act as an image data store between the GPU and CPU. At this resolution the game will need at least 4GB of VRAM from our PC build. So with the selected GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB we have met that graphical requirement.

Selecting The Right Back 4 Blood 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The backbone of a pc build is the motherboard. Todays best price mobo, that gives us the LGA 1151 socket type is the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151. From here we can then put in to this game’s bespoke PC build the Core i7-9700KF 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 $277.99. A good point of reference is that the bottom recorded price we have for the Core i7-9700KF 8-Core 3.6GHz is $259.64 on 7th Apr 2021.

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. Bottom motherboard prices recorded for this mobo was when we saw it at $59.99, on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Back 4 Blood At The Right Price

One of the more significant hardware components in this Back 4 Blood build is the RAM. We are choosing some complementary and well priced Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz.

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.

We expect Back 4 Blood would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 54 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 76 FPS.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Back 4 Blood

We have chosen a great valued but higher performing mouse today with the Cooler Master MM710 gaming mouse. We felt a better performance mouse would better suit Back 4 Blood because it falls into the , Shooter, Online genre groupings and would benefit from the extra mouse quality the Cooler Master MM710 delivers.

Back 4 Blood Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

With a game like this, (which falls in the , Shooter, Online genre group) we wanted to make sure the audio solution we go with was up to the task. A game like Back 4 Blood has encouraged us to increase the quality of the headset we choose as it will return a much better experience overall. Looking through the hardware lists available and reviewing today’s prices we felt that the Logitech G635 7.1 headset is the right way to go, delivering some great audio, clear, reliable, while still being the best priced mid range headset. We have a selection list for headsets above if you would like to consider some other options we have seen at a good price today.

An Alternative Back 4 Blood Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Perhaps you are after a AMD graphics card rather than the one we have added to this build. If so we would suggest the similar performing Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, which has a 7% better performance variation, but is still a suitable video card choice for this game. We have also considered the best value for performance based on today’s prices, with it costing $899.98 at the moment.
