Today’s build we start by looking for the right graphics card, at the right price, that can run RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the Radeon RX 560 2GB today for this game.

Looking a little deeper at this cards pricing history shows this card has increased its price by $99.99 over the past two weeks.

We were looking to get a video card with at least 2GB of VRAM available onboard it, which acts an image data buffer between our video card and CPU. The Radeon RX 560 2GB has 2GB, which is suitable at this resolution.

Selecting The Right RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures 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 MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151. From here we can then put in to this game’s bespoke PC build the Core i3-8100 4-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 $175.64. The cheapest price we spotted this cpu for is $109.99, which was on 13th Dec 2019.

Chosen for price point, socket type and feature list, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 has a cost today of $49.46. To help give some depth to the price points for this motherboard, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 was priced at $32.99 on 28th Dec 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures At The Right Price

We are choosing some complementary and well priced Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. It is currently priced at $32.99. 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.

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures at 1440p would be pulling in about 66 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 47 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures

The Sandbox, Strategy, Management genre means that we would be looking for our build’s mouse selection to be of higher quality than normal, so we have chosen the Cooler Master MM710 as the best mouse option based on today’s prices versus gamer quality.

An Alternative RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures Graphics Card Option for 1080p

While we have suggested a AMD graphics card for this build you can also consider putting in a Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050, which is similar, with a 1% worse performance difference, but provides another reasonable alternative graphics option. It is currently priced at $149.99.
