When putting this sort of PC together we want great value for money but a machine that can deliver solid FPS on Elden Ring at 1080p ultra graphics. We have selected the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black 8GB today as a well placed option.

Over the past couple of weeks this card has seen a price drop of $170, which lends us confidence in picking it as a good purchase for this game.

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 GTS Black 8GB we have met that graphical requirement.

We are choosing a well rounded and best priced motherboard (the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151), that can provide us with the cpu LGA 1151 socket type.

A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 27th May 2020 where we saw it for $59.This CPU and GPU provide the required Elden Ring experience while maintaining the best price point at this 1080p resolution.

With the feature rich MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 priced competitively at $49.46 it is certainly in todays Elden Ring build for a good reason. To offer motherboard pricing insight we spotted this being sold for a low price of $32.99, which was recorded at 28th Dec 2019.

An Alternative Elden Ring Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a AMD card, like the one we have opted for in this build.

We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $219.99 at the moment.
