Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Monkey King: Hero Is Back PC Build

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play Monkey King: Hero Is Back at 1080p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The Radeon RX 560 2GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $99.99 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 1080p. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019, which had it priced at $99.99.

Selecting The Right Monkey King: Hero Is Back 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a cpu is largely dependent on the right motherboard. The CPU we are going to choose has the Socket AM4 socket type. So we have found the best priced and well featured mobo in the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4. The Ryzen 5 2600 processor will then fit in and accompany our Radeon RX 560 2GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $185.99. Looking through our data we can see the lowest price for this cpu was on 7th Jul 2020, which had it marked up at $59.9.

The GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard has a cost today of $59.99 that helps find it a place in today’s Monkey King: Hero Is Back build. The cheapest motherboard price for the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 was recorded as $51.88, which was on 18th Feb 2021.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Monkey King: Hero Is Back At The Right Price

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

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running Monkey King: Hero Is Back at 1440p would be pulling in about 29 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 21 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Monkey King: Hero Is Back PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Battlefield 2042, Days Gone and Dying Light 2. Starting with Battlefield 2042 we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 28FPS on Ultra and 39FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Days Gone likely to achieve 28FPS on Ultra and 39FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Dying Light 2 at Ultra setting we can expect 28 FPS, raising to 39 FPS on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Monkey King: Hero Is Back Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are looking for a graphics card from Nvidia instead of the one we have selected in this build then you could try GeForce GTX 2050, which has a 1% worse performance difference, so still similar capabilities. We have chosen it based on its price-performance figure as well, as it is currently priced at $149.99.
