Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Space Mechanic Simulator 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 Space Mechanic Simulator at 1080p ultra settings. Today’s prices for graphics cards lead us to the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB as the smartest GPU option for this computer and one that will deliver some good frame rates at this gaming resolution at ultra. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB is $123.99 recorded at 5th Feb 2020. Todays price of $175.45 is certainly a good price for this hardware, considering the performance returns are a good match for this game.

Selecting The Right Space Mechanic Simulator 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a cpu is largely dependent on the right motherboard. The CPU we are going to choose has the LGA 1151 socket type. So we have found the best priced and well featured mobo in the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151. The Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz processor will then fit in and accompany our Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $157.5. You can get this processor for $59, which we saw it at that price on 27th May 2020. This is the lowest we have seen it at while watching processor prices.

The ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard has a cost today of $72.99 that helps find it a place in today’s Space Mechanic Simulator build. Bottom motherboard prices recorded for this mobo was when we saw it at $59.99, on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Space Mechanic Simulator At The Right Price

Our Space Mechanic Simulator built PC needs some solid performing RAM to enable us to meet the game’s system requirement expectations and achieve the desired FPS at ultra 1080p. The Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is capable of meeting those needs, while complementing the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz and Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB of our build and priced at a reasonable $42.99. The cheapest system memory price for Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz was recorded as $30.35, and this was on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Space Mechanic Simulator

With our key performance components in place we are expecting to see this setup running Space Mechanic Simulator at around 55 average frames per second, on 1080p screen resolution. This should be achieved on ultra graphics settings. If you turn a few graphics options down we expect around 77 FPS at high graphics.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

If this 1080p build was to run Space Mechanic Simulator at 1440p Ultra, by increasing its screen size, then the FPS it would return on High would be around an average of 59 FPS. At Ultra we expect the average to be 42.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Space Mechanic Simulator PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Dying Light 2, Back 4 Blood and Resident Evil 8. Starting with Dying Light 2 we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 55FPS on Ultra and 77FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Back 4 Blood likely to achieve 55FPS on Ultra and 77FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Resident Evil 8 at Ultra setting we can expect 55 FPS, raising to 77 FPS on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Space Mechanic Simulator Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a AMD card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050 Ti 4GB instead, which comes with a 8% worse performance adjustment when compared to Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $139.99 at the moment.
