Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p Sherlock Holmes Chapter One PC Build

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play Sherlock Holmes Chapter One at 1440p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $239.99 that we found it marked at today. It will certainly help return suitable FPS, which we will go into a bit later in the article, at ultra 1440p. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 where we saw it for $229.99. 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.

Selecting The Right Sherlock Holmes Chapter One 1440p Motherboard and CPU

To accompany the graphics option we have put a compatible motherboard into the build. The ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard in turn enables us to add the Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz processor that has the LGA 1151 socket. This CPU is a great fit for Sherlock Holmes Chapter One and balances nicely with the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, 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 $200. Our cheapest price recorded for the Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz was $161.03, which we spotted on 1st Dec 2020.

Today the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 competitively costs $72.99, which provides it a place in our build today. A low price point for this motherboard would be $59.99, which we recorded it at on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Sherlock Holmes Chapter One At The Right Price

Our Sherlock Holmes Chapter One built PC needs some solid performing RAM to enable us to meet the game’s system requirement expectations and achieve the desired FPS at ultra 1440p. The Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is capable of meeting those needs, while complementing the Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz and GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB of our build and priced at a reasonable $42.99. A low price point for this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz was spotted on 29th Nov 2019, where we saw it at $30.35.

PC Performance Review at 1440p Ultra Settings on Sherlock Holmes Chapter One

With this current build we expect to see a return of 48 frames per second at ultra 1440p resolution in Sherlock Holmes Chapter One. Adjust some of the graphics options and you could boost this up to 67 FPS for High graphics settings.

Other Popular Game 1440p Ultra Custom PC Builds

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running Sherlock Holmes Chapter One at 4k would be pulling in about 40 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 28 if you were playing it at 4k Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Sherlock Holmes Chapter One PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles FIFA 22, Far Cry 6 and Star Citizen. Starting with FIFA 22 we can see that at 1440p we are likely to see 48FPS on Ultra and 67FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Far Cry 6 likely to achieve 48FPS on Ultra and 67FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Star Citizen at Ultra setting we can expect 48 FPS, raising to 67 FPS on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Sherlock Holmes Chapter One Graphics Card Option for 1440p

Not everyone is interested in going with a Nvidia card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB instead, which comes with a 7% better performance adjustment when compared to GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $899.98 at the moment.
