Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p Burndown PC Build

Getting the right graphics card is a good way to start any game PC build. So lets take a look for the best price to performance gpu hardware available right now, that isnt overpowered for this game but will still run Burndown at 1440p ultra settings. Today’s prices for graphics cards lead us to the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB as the smartest GPU option for this computer and one that will deliver some good frame rates at this gaming resolution at ultra. 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, 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 of $239.99 is certainly a good price for this hardware, considering the performance returns are a good match for this game.

Selecting The Right Burndown 1440p Motherboard and CPU

To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz processor based around the shared LGA 1151 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Burndown experience, that helps achieve steady frames at this resolution. The chosen cpu has itself been selected because it represents a good fit with the game and the price we found it at when comparing today’s cpu market prices, finding it currently priced at $167.87. Our cheapest price recorded for the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz was $119.99, which we spotted on 16th Mar 2020.

The ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard has a cost today of $72.99 that helps find it a place in today’s Burndown build. This motherboard was priced at $59.99, which we saw on 4th Apr 2020. While monitoring prices this is the lowest we have seen it at.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Burndown At The Right Price

One of the more significant hardware components in this Burndown build is the RAM. We are choosing some complementary and well priced Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. It is currently priced at $42.99. While among the best priced system memory for this build it will still provide us with the ability to reach our desired FPS for the 1440p ultra setting, that we have been focusing on with this PC. To provide a bit of system memory pricing insight, we spotted this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz being sold for a low price of $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1440p Ultra Settings on Burndown

This PC build has been optimized to deliver around 52 FPS at Ultra settings for Burndown, while running on a 1440p screen size. While you might want to increase this to 73 FPS if you lower some of the graphics options inline with High graphics settings.

How this build performs for other popular games

We should check some other games performance with our Burndown PC. Looking at some other popular games today, to see how the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB and this setup will run on 1440p. Back 4 Blood is expected to return 52 FPS when run on Ultra which increases to around 73 frames per second on High. Days Gone would return 52 FPS on Ultra and then go up to 73 FPS at High settings. With Far Cry 6 we expect 52 FPS running at Ultra settings and 73 frames on High settings.

An Alternative Burndown Graphics Card Option for 1440p

Not everyone is a fan of team Nvidia, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested AMD card, the Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB. It is placed at 7% better performance difference and certainly capable of delivering up Burndown frames on a par with our primary GPU selection. We have also selected it based on its price today, which finds it at $899.98.
