Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Black Book PC Build

Our key objective when putting together our next gaming PC is always going to be finding a great price point for the most performance we can. Today’s build we start by looking for the right graphics card, at the right price, that can run Black Book at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB is $159 recorded at 28th Dec 2019. Todays price is $164.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. And we can see the card has dropped its price by $14.01 during the past two weeks.

Selecting The Right Black Book 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We have selected a GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard to allow us to then go on and add a great cpu for this Black Book build. With a Socket AM4 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core 3.6GHz, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $199.99 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. Our cheapest price recorded for the Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core 3.6GHz was $56.98, which we spotted on 7th Jul 2020.

Having the competitive price tag of $59.99, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard’s strong price point today helps it stay in this Black Book PC 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 Black Book At The Right Price

To make sure we meet the Black Book system requirements and to help us achieve the required FPS for Ultra at 1080p we have chosen the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $42.99 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely. 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 1080p Ultra Settings on Black Book

So now that our core components are all in place we would expect to see around 64 FPS in Black Book at 1080p resolution, on Ultra settings. Make some adjustments to the graphics options and you could boost this up to 89 FPS for High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Black Book

Selecting the right mouse for a game like Black Book has encouraged us to increase the quality of the mouse we would add to our build. As the game sits in the , Strategy, RPG, Adventure genre list we felt that the Cooler Master MM710 mouse is today’s best priced but higher performing gaming mouse for this particular computer setup.

An Alternative Black Book Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Or you could put the GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB graphics card into this computer, if you are after an alternative Nvidia PC build. It has a 4% better performance variation to the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB, so similar in capability and we have picked it as the best priced alternative manufacturer card, with a price of $219.99.
