Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Observer: System Redux PC Build

When selecting the right graphics card today we are specifically hunting for great price-to-performance gpus that can run Observer: System Redux in ultra 1080p. Right now the best graphics card purchase for this game is the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, which will work really well at this screen resolution. It’s currently priced at $239.99, which puts it as one of the cheapest but best performers for this type of game. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $47.68 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019, which had it priced at $229.99.

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 Observer: System Redux 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 i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz processor based around the shared LGA 1151 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Observer: System Redux 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 $167.87. The cheapest price we spotted this cpu for is $119.99, which was on 16th Mar 2020.

Having the competitive price tag of $72.99, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard’s strong price point today helps it stay in this Observer: System Redux PC build. Bottom motherboard prices recorded for this mobo was when we saw it at $59.99, on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Observer: System Redux At The Right Price

System Memory is a significant part of any gaming computer. The build today finds the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz to be the best price to performance RAM solution for our Observer: System Redux PC. At last reckoning we priced it up at $42.99, which is a cheap price for this amount of RAM. There are of course other options and configurations of system memory you might like to consider in your build. A price point for this RAM was down to $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.
