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 N.E.O 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. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019 which had it priced at $229.99. 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. Over the past couple of weeks this card has seen a price drop of $47.68, which lends us confidence in picking it as a good purchase for this game.

Selecting The Right N.E.O 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The motherboard we are going for is the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4. Its the best priced Socket AM4 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 Ryzen 5 2600X 6-Core 3.6GHz processor is a great choice for this game and is currently costing $199.99. Looking through our price records we noticed that this processor was seen on 28th Nov 2019 priced at $119.99.

With the feature rich GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 priced competitively at $59.99 it is certainly in todays N.E.O build for a good reason. To help give some depth to the price points for this motherboard, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 was priced at $51.88 on 18th Feb 2021.

How To Choose The Best RAM For N.E.O At The Right Price

To make sure we meet the N.E.O system requirements and to help us achieve the required FPS for Ultra at 1080p we have chosen the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz, which is todays best priced system memory.

To help provide a sense of cost for this RAM, the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz was priced at $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on N.E.O

This computer setup should be looking at getting 63 FPS on Ultra graphics at the 1080p screen size in N.E.O. We expect with a few tweaks to the settings this gaming PC will also get around 88 FPS at High settings, which will give you some frame rate performance to play around with.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

If this 1080p build was to run N.E.O at 1440p Ultra, by increasing its screen size, then the FPS it would return on High would be around an average of 67 FPS. At Ultra we expect the average to be 48.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new N.E.O PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1080p. FIFA 22 should get 63 when run on Ultra and this raises to 88 FPS on High. The popular Star Citizen gets a return of 63 FPS on Ultra and then up to 88 FPS when settings are dropped to High. Then there is Far Cry 6, which is popular at the moment, which is returning 63 FPS run at Ultra and 88 frames on High.

An Alternative N.E.O Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a Nvidia card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB instead, which comes with a 7% better performance adjustment when compared to GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $899.98 at the moment.
