Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Battlewake PC Build

Obviously one of the most important components for this build is the graphics card. We can take a look at the best price to performance hardware right now to help deliver a system that can run Battlewake at 1080p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $308.14, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for Battlewake. Over the last few weeks we have noticed it increase its price by $10.62, proving that additional savings can be found you will just need to shop around. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 19th Dec 2019 which had it priced at $297.52.

Selecting The Right Battlewake 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The motherboard we are going for is the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151. Its the best priced LGA 1151 socket type motherboard on the market today and will give us the spot to choose a great pairing CPU for the Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB. Looking over the prices today we can see that the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz processor is a great choice for this game and is currently costing $158.5. A good point of reference is that the bottom recorded price we have for the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz is $119.99 on 16th Mar 2020.

The MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard has a cost today of $49.46 that helps find it a place in today’s Battlewake build. A low recorded price for this motherboard was spotted on 28th Dec 2019 where it was $32.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Battlewake At The Right Price

To make sure we meet the Battlewake system requirements and to help us achieve the required FPS for Ultra at 1080p we have chosen the OLOy 16GB (1x16GB) DDR4 2400MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $50.99 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely. To help provide a sense of cost for this RAM, the OLOy 16GB (1x16GB) DDR4 2400MHz was priced at $47.89 on 7th Jan 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Battlewake

We reckon these hardware components in our PC build will get 109 FPS at high settings in game and you could improve the graphics up to Ultra and see a FPS of 78 at 1080p.

An Alternative Battlewake Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Why not switch out the graphics card in this build and replace it with a similarly powerful card from Nvidia. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Gigabyte Windforce OC 6GB graphics card has a 5% worse performance variation compared to the currently chosen video card. As the best price point for an alternative manufacturer in this range it currently costs $299.99.
