The lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix 6GB is $229.99 recorded at 28th Nov 2019.. This PC graphics hardware selection is a nice price to performance option when looking to run War Remains at 1080p ultra graphics. We expect to see some good FPS from this card at these specs. Over the past couple of weeks this card has seen a price drop of $50, which lends us confidence in picking it as a good purchase for this game.

We also want the graphics card to have at least 6GB VRAM onboard. The video card in this build has 6 which will act as a good data buffer between the processor and the graphics hardware.

Selecting The Right War Remains 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We are choosing a well rounded and best priced motherboard (the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151), that can provide us with the cpu LGA 1151 socket type.

Bottom prices recorded for this CPU was when we saw it at $149.99, which we noticed it on 8th Jan 2020.This CPU and GPU provide the required War Remains experience while maintaining the best price point at this 1080p resolution.

And with the motherboard costing $49.46 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. Bottom motherboard prices recorded for this mobo was when we saw it at $32.99, on 28th Dec 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For War Remains At The Right Price

As one of the 3 main system components, when considering a PC built for War Remains, the correct RAM selection is obviously important. We are looking for something that is well priced but also capable of meeting the games requirements.
