Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Time Squared PC Build

Obviously one of the most important components for this build is the graphics card. We can take a look at the best price to performance hardware right now to help deliver a system that can run Time Squared at 1080p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the Radeon RX 560 2GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $99.99, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for Time Squared. As a point of interest this graphics card has increased its price by $99.99 over the past two weeks. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 and it was priced at $99.99.

Selecting The Right Time Squared 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We have selected a GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard to allow us to then go on and add a great cpu for this Time Squared build. With a Socket AM4 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Ryzen 5 2400G, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $149.99 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 3rd Dec 2019 where we saw it for $118.98.

Today the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 competitively costs $59.99, which provides it a place in our build today. Our motherboard price records put this mobo’s price on 18th Feb 2021 at $51.88.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Time Squared 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 Time Squared 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. Our RAM recorded prices put this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz price at $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Time Squared

With our key performance components in place we are expecting to see this setup running Time Squared at around 64 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 90 FPS at high graphics.

An Alternative Time Squared Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are wanting a graphics choice from the other team then our suggestion would be the Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050 video card, currently priced at $149.99. This option has a performance of 1% worse when compared to the Radeon RX 560 2GB and completely capable of offering a good gpu alternative.
