Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Total Lockdown PC Build

Not wanting to pay over the odds for hardware we dont actually need, is a gamers primary objective when building their next PC. But obviously in this specific PC build we want to ensure enough we choose something with enough performance capability to run Total Lockdown at 1080p ultra graphics options. We have taken a look at a whole bunch of graphics card prices today and compared them to the hardware’s gaming performance and our choice for this game is the Radeon RX 560 4GB. We will get into its expected FPS for this game a bit later in the article, but for now we know it will deliver reliable frame rates at ultra 1080p. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019, which had it 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. As a point of interest this graphics card has increased its price by $107.99 over the past two weeks.

Selecting The Right Total Lockdown 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz processor based around the shared LGA 1151 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Total Lockdown 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 $157.5. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 27th May 2020 where we saw it for $59.

With a price tag today of $72.99, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the Total Lockdown PC. To provide a motherboard pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 is $59.99 on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Total Lockdown At The Right Price

The Total Lockdown PC we are building will want some supporting RAM to help our CPU and GPU selections to deliver the right FPS. We are still focusing on achieving 1080p ultra and so the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz which we have found for $42.99 is among the best price system memory at the moment. We looked through our records and saw that the RAM prices on 29th Nov 2019, represented a low price point $30.35. Which gives us an indication of how things sit today with the RAM price

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Total Lockdown

Running a PC build with these hardware components for Total Lockdown we expect to see about a 89 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 64 at 1080p.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new Total Lockdown PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1080p. Dying Light 2 should get 64 when run on Ultra and this raises to 89 FPS on High. The popular Battlefield 2042 gets a return of 64 FPS on Ultra and then up to 89 FPS when settings are dropped to High.
