Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Wave Break PC Build

When selecting the right graphics card today we are specifically hunting for great price-to-performance gpus that can run Wave Break in ultra 1080p. Right now the best graphics card purchase for this game is the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, which will work really well at this screen resolution. It’s currently priced at $239.99, which puts it as one of the cheapest but best performers for this type of game. 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. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 and it was priced at $229.99.

Selecting The Right Wave Break 1080p Motherboard and CPU

ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard is today’s best buy mobo, that also provides us with the LGA 1151 cpu socket type. Which is ideal for the best performance to price processor we have seen for our build, the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz. This processor is currently priced at a competitive $157.5 and really works well with the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB. Looking through our price records we noticed that this processor was seen on 27th May 2020 priced at $59.

With the feature rich ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 priced competitively at $72.99 it is certainly in todays Wave Break build for a good reason. 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 Wave Break At The Right Price

As one of the 3 main system components, when considering a PC built for Wave Break, the correct RAM selection is obviously important. We are looking for something that is well priced but also capable of meeting the games requirements. The Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is well priced at $42.99 and fits with the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz and GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB selections to ensure solid FPS at 1080p ultra settings. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $59.99, and this was on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Wave Break

So now that our core components are all in place we would expect to see around 71 FPS in Wave Break at 1080p resolution, on Ultra settings. Make some adjustments to the graphics options and you could boost this up to 99 FPS for High graphics settings.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Wave Break would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 54 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 76 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Wave Break PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles FIFA 22, Dying Light 2 and Battlefield 2042. Starting with FIFA 22 we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 71FPS on Ultra and 99FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Dying Light 2 likely to achieve 71FPS on Ultra and 99FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Battlefield 2042 at Ultra setting we can expect 71 FPS, raising to 99 FPS on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Wave Break Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Perhaps you are after a AMD graphics card rather than the one we have added to this build. If so we would suggest the similar performing Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, which has a 7% better performance variation, but is still a suitable video card choice for this game. We have also considered the best value for performance based on today’s prices, with it costing $899.98 at the moment.
