Today’s build we start by looking for the right graphics card, at the right price, that can run Wide Cross at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the Radeon RX 550X 4GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. Todays price is $99.88 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. Its price over the past couple of weeks has increased a bit by $99.88, which makes us think additional savings can be made here if you shop around.

Currently priced at a competitive $157.5 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. 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 Wide Cross build. To offer motherboard pricing insight we spotted this being sold for a low price of $59.99, which was recorded at 4th Apr 2020.
