Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Beast PC Build

Our key objective when putting together our next gaming PC is always going to be finding a great price point for the most performance we can. Today’s build we start by looking for the right graphics card, at the right price, that can run Beast at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the Radeon RX 560 4GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 and it was priced at $107.99. Todays price is $107.99 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 $107.99, which makes us think additional savings can be made here if you shop around.

Selecting The Right Beast 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We are choosing a well rounded and best priced motherboard (the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4), that can provide us with the cpu Socket AM4 socket type. This is so we can select the Ryzen 3 3200G that has the best price to performance position today, at $193.74. Giving us a bit more of an insight we saw this processor being sold for a low price of $83.59, which was on 17th Jun 2020.This CPU and GPU provide the required Beast experience while maintaining the best price point at this 1080p resolution.

Today the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 competitively costs $59.99, which provides it a place in our build today. The cheapest motherboard price for the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 was recorded as $51.88, which was on 18th Feb 2021.

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

As one of the 3 main system components, when considering a PC built for Beast, the correct RAM selection is obviously important. We are looking for something that is well priced but also capable of meeting the games requirements. The Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is well priced at $42.99 and fits with the Ryzen 3 3200G and Radeon RX 560 4GB selections to ensure solid FPS at 1080p ultra settings. A low price point for this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz was spotted on 29th Nov 2019, where we saw it at $30.35.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Beast

Running a PC build with these hardware components for Beast we expect to see about a 85 FPS average, with a few low frame rates in some of the more intense scenes. You could up the quality of game graphics to Ultra, which will see the FPS drop to 61 at 1080p.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Beast would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 46 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 1440p graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 65 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

To buy this Beast PC we will still want it to do ok when running other popular games. So to give us an idea about our builds performance lets see how it deals these 3 popular games at 1080p. Forza Horizon 5 will be expecting a Ultra FPS of 61 and a High setting FPS of 85 frames. Far Cry 6 expects Ultra FPS around 61 which will improve to 85 FPS for High settings. Grand Theft Auto VI is expected to be around 61 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 85 FPS on High settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Beast

The , Strategy, RPG, Action genre means that we would be looking for our build’s mouse selection to be of higher quality than normal, so we have chosen the Cooler Master MM710 as the best mouse option based on today’s prices versus gamer quality.

An Alternative Beast Graphics Card Option for 1080p

As an alternative to the AMD manufactured video card we have gone for in this PC, you could also consider the similarly powerful Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050. It has a 4% worse performance difference compared to our selected Radeon RX 560 4GB. Obviously we have chosen it as the cheapest price to performance offering in this range. It is currently priced at $149.99.
