Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p Surviving Mars: Green Planet PC Build

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play Surviving Mars: Green Planet at 1440p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $164.99 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 1440p.

We have seen this card drop its price recently by $14.01 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

Our PC build has 8GB 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 Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB we have met that graphical requirement.

To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz processor based around the shared LGA 1151 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Surviving Mars: Green Planet experience, that helps achieve steady frames at this resolution. The chosen cpu has itself been selected because it represents a good fit with the game and the price we found it at when comparing today’s cpu market prices, finding it currently priced at $200. Giving us a bit more of an insight we saw this processor being sold for a low price of $161.03, which was on 1st Dec 2020.

Today the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 competitively costs $72.99, which provides it a place in our build today. A low price point for this motherboard would be $59.99, which we recorded it at on 4th Apr 2020.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Surviving Mars: Green Planet

We opted for this higher quality gaming mouse, Cooler Master MM710, because it would cater to the , Strategy, Management genre type that Surviving Mars: Green Planet sits in. This is still the best priced mouse we had in our lists today, just a better quality peripheral than we might normally consider.

An Alternative Surviving Mars: Green Planet Graphics Card Option for 1440p

Perhaps you are after a Nvidia graphics card rather than the one we have added to this build. If so we would suggest the similar performing GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB, which has a 4% 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 $219.99 at the moment.
