Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Resident Evil Resistance PC Build

Our key objective when putting together our next gaming PC is always going to be finding a great price point for the most performance we can. Today’s build we start by looking for the right graphics card, at the right price, that can run Project Resistance at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB is $229.99 on 28th Nov 2019. 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.

Our graphics card will need 3GB of VRAM built into it to act as a suitable buffer between our video card and chosen CPU. This graphics card has 6GB which will be plenty for this game at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Resident Evil Resistance 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The motherboard we are going for is the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151. 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 GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB. 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 $167.87. Looking through our data we can see the lowest price for this cpu was on 16th Mar 2020, which had it marked up at $119.99.

And with the motherboard costing $72.99 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. To provide a motherboard pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 is $59.99 on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Resident Evil Resistance At The Right Price

One of the most important hardware parts of this computer is the system memory or RAM. To make sure our resolution target and frame rates are met we have chosen to put in Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. This is currently priced at $42.99 and is well priced compared to the system memory market today. We looked through our records and saw that the RAM prices on 29th Nov 2019, represented a low price point $30.35. Which gives us an indication of how things sit today with the RAM price

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Resident Evil Resistance

With this current build we expect to see a return of 69 frames per second at ultra 1080p resolution in Resident Evil Resistance. Adjust some of the graphics options and you could boost this up to 96 FPS for High graphics settings.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Project Resistance would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 52 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 73 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

To buy this Project Resistance PC we will still want it to do ok when running other popular games. So to give us an idea about our builds performance lets see how it deals these 3 popular games at 1080p. Grand Theft Auto VI will be expecting a Ultra FPS of 69 and a High setting FPS of 96 frames. Star Citizen expects Ultra FPS around 69 which will improve to 96 FPS for High settings. Resident Evil 8 is expected to be around 69 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 96 FPS on High settings.

An Alternative Resident Evil Resistance Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are looking for a graphics card from AMD instead of the one we have selected in this build then you could try Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, which has a 7% better performance difference, so still similar capabilities. We have chosen it based on its price-performance figure as well, as it is currently priced at $899.98.
