Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $239.99, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for Warhammer 40,000: Darktide. Over the past couple of weeks this card has seen a price drop of $47.68, which lends us confidence in picking it as a good purchase for this game.

Finding a cpu is largely dependent on the right motherboard. The CPU we are going to choose has the LGA 1151 socket type. So we have found the best priced and well featured mobo in the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151. The Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz processor will then fit in and accompany our GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $200. The cheapest price we spotted this cpu for is $161.03, which was on 1st Dec 2020.

With the feature rich ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 priced competitively at $72.99 it is certainly in todays Warhammer 40,000: Darktide build for a good reason. Our motherboard price records put this mobo’s price on 4th Apr 2020 at $59.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Warhammer 40,000: Darktide At The Right Price

The Warhammer 40,000: Darktide PC we are building will want some supporting RAM to help our CPU and GPU selections to deliver the right FPS.

The cheapest system memory price for Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz was recorded as $30.35, and this was on 29th Nov 2019.
