Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 5th Feb 2020 and it was priced at $123.99.

Finding a well priced motherboard, like the one we are putting in our build today really helps tie things together in terms of performance and opens up other hardware options that become available to us later in the selection. The GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard is at a great price point and lets us select our desired Socket AM4 cpu. As the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB wants a suitable good pairing when looking to run L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files well at this resolution. The Ryzen 5 2600X 6-Core 3.6GHz is currently priced at a competitive $199.99. Looking through our price records we noticed that this processor was seen on 28th Nov 2019 priced at $119.99.

And with the motherboard costing $59.99 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. A low price point for this motherboard would be $51.88, which we recorded it at on 18th Feb 2021.

How To Choose The Best RAM For L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files At The Right Price

One of the most important hardware parts of this computer is the system memory or RAM.

This is currently priced at $42.99 and is well priced compared to the system memory market today. Our RAM recorded prices put this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz price at $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 18 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 1440p graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 26 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1080p. Star Citizen should get 24 when run on Ultra and this raises to 34 FPS on High. The popular Days Gone gets a return of 24 FPS on Ultra and then up to 34 FPS when settings are dropped to High. Then there is Resident Evil 8, which is popular at the moment, which is returning 24 FPS run at Ultra and 34 frames on High.
