Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Cloudpunk PC Build

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play Cloudpunk at 1080p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $239.99 that we found it marked at today. It will certainly help return suitable FPS, which we will go into a bit later in the article, at ultra 1080p. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB is $229.99 recorded at 28th Nov 2019. Over the past couple of weeks this card has seen a price drop of $47.68, which lends us confidence in picking it as a good purchase for this game.

Selecting The Right Cloudpunk 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Ryzen 5 2400G processor based around the shared Socket AM4 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Cloudpunk 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 $149.99. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 3rd Dec 2019 where we saw it for $118.98.

At $59.99 the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard muscles its feature rich chipboard into today’s Cloudpunk PC build. A low price point for this motherboard would be $51.88, which we recorded it at on 18th Feb 2021.

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

One of the most important hardware parts of this computer is the system memory or RAM. To make sure our resolution target and frame rates are met we have chosen to put in Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. This is currently priced at $42.99 and is well priced compared to the system memory market today. A price point for this RAM was down to $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Cloudpunk

Our PC build can run Cloudpunk at High graphics settings comfortably, returning a 1080p FPS of 88 and we would expect an average of 63 FPS on Ultra with the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, Ryzen 5 2400G combo we have put into this computer.

An Alternative Cloudpunk Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a Nvidia card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB instead, which comes with a 7% better performance adjustment when compared to GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $899.98 at the moment.
