Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Torque Drift PC Build

Our challenge is not overpaying for hardware we dont need, but making sure we get enough performance from our system that we can play Torque Drift at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. Looking a little deeper at this cards pricing history shows this card has seen a drop in its price by $159.23 over the last two weeks. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 22nd Dec 2019 where we saw it for $426.41. With a price of $435.61 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

Selecting The Right Torque Drift 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To accompany the graphics option we have put a compatible motherboard into the build. The GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard in turn enables us to add the Ryzen 7 3700X 8-Core 3.6GHz processor that has the Socket AM4 socket. This CPU is a great fit for Torque Drift and balances nicely with the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB, to help reach the right frame rates at this resolution. We have of course chosen this CPU today because of its price to performance credentials where it is currently priced at $329.99. Looking through our data we can see the lowest price for this cpu was on 7th Jul 2020, which had it marked up at $89.

The GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard has a cost today of $59.99 that helps find it a place in today’s Torque Drift build. To help give some depth to the price points for this motherboard, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 was priced at $51.88 on 18th Feb 2021.

An Alternative Torque Drift Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is a fan of team Nvidia, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested AMD card, the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB. It is placed at 5% worse performance difference and certainly capable of delivering up Torque Drift frames on a par with our primary GPU selection. We have also selected it based on its price today, which finds it at $397.99.
