Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p N.E.O PC Build

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play N.E.O at 1440p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $239.99 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 1440p. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 where we saw it for $229.99. Watching this card over the past 2 weeks we have seen its price drop by $47.68, further supporting our selection in this hardware.

Selecting The Right N.E.O 1440p Motherboard and CPU

Getting the motherboard selection right in this build helps us go on to choose a compatible cpu. With a good price today we find the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 with its Socket AM4 socket enables us to select the Ryzen 5 2600X 6-Core 3.6GHz, which is priced right now at $199.99. Looking through our data we can see the lowest price for this cpu was on 28th Nov 2019, which had it marked up at $119.99.Now we have a great pairing in this rig allowing the CPU and GPU to work well together to get a solid N.E.O experience for the best price point at 1440p.

Having the competitive price tag of $59.99, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard’s strong price point today helps it stay in this N.E.O PC build. This motherboard was priced at $51.88, which we saw on 18th Feb 2021. While monitoring prices this is the lowest we have seen it at.

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

System Memory is a significant part of any gaming computer. The build today finds the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz to be the best price to performance RAM solution for our N.E.O PC. At last reckoning we priced it up at $42.99, which is a cheap price for this amount of RAM. There are of course other options and configurations of system memory you might like to consider in your build. To provide a RAM pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1440p Ultra Settings on N.E.O

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 67 FPS on High settings in N.E.O at 1440p. There may be some lower frame rates in some parts of the game, but we have chosen the components to get some solid frame rates. Increasing the quality in the game to Ultra, will see us still getting an FPS of 48.
