Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Overpass PC Build

Not wanting to pay over the odds for hardware we dont actually need, is a gamers primary objective when building their next PC. But obviously in this specific PC build we want to ensure enough we choose something with enough performance capability to run Overpass at 1080p ultra graphics options. We have taken a look at a whole bunch of graphics card prices today and compared them to the hardware’s gaming performance and our choice for this game is the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB. We will get into its expected FPS for this game a bit later in the article, but for now we know it will deliver reliable frame rates 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. 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. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $47.68 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

We also want the graphics card to have at least 3GB VRAM onboard. The video card in this build has 6 which will act as a good data buffer between the processor and the graphics hardware.

Selecting The Right Overpass 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We are choosing a well rounded and best priced motherboard (the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151), that can provide us with the cpu LGA 1151 socket type. This is so we can select the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz that has the best price to performance position today, at $167.87. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 16th Mar 2020 where we saw it for $119.99.This CPU and GPU provide the required Overpass experience while maintaining the best price point at this 1080p resolution.

The ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard has a cost today of $72.99 that helps find it a place in today’s Overpass 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 Overpass At The Right Price

To make sure we meet the Overpass system requirements and to help us achieve the required FPS for Ultra at 1080p we have chosen the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $42.99 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely. A low price point for this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz was spotted on 29th Nov 2019, where we saw it at $30.35.

Our PC build can run Overpass at High graphics settings comfortably, returning a 1080p FPS of 96 and we would expect an average of 69 FPS on Ultra with the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz combo we have put into this computer.
