Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Mortal Shell PC Build

Choosing the graphics card needs to be done correctly and as we are putting together a gamer PC build for Mortal Shell at 1080p ultra graphics we want something with the best price today while returning the best performance for that price. This has led us to the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB, which has a good price at the moment, as its currently priced at $397.99. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB is $376.05 on 6th Dec 2019. And with that in mind the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB is a great match for Mortal Shell at 1080p ultra. It will certainly help us get good FPS. we will highlight those FPS in more detail later in this article. Its price over the past couple of weeks has increased a bit by $9.91, which makes us think additional savings can be made here if you shop around.

The game also needs this graphics solution to deliver at least 6 GB VRAM to act as a buffer between the PC build’s video card and the processor.

Selecting The Right Mortal Shell 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 2600X 6-Core 3.6GHz processor based around the shared Socket AM4 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Mortal Shell 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 $199.99. Our cheapest price recorded for the Ryzen 5 2600X 6-Core 3.6GHz was $119.99, which we spotted on 28th Nov 2019.

The GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard has a cost today of $59.99 that helps find it a place in today’s Mortal Shell build. This motherboard was priced at $51.88, which we saw on 18th Feb 2021. While monitoring prices this is the lowest we have seen it at.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Mortal Shell 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. To provide a RAM pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Mortal Shell

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 85 FPS on High settings in Mortal Shell at 1080p. There may be some lower frame rates in some parts of the game, but we have chosen the components to get some solid frame rates. Increasing the quality in the game to Ultra, will see us still getting an FPS of 61.

An Alternative Mortal Shell Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a AMD card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Asus Dual Advanced 8GB instead, which comes with a 4% worse performance adjustment when compared to Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $379.99 at the moment.
