Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Gotham Knights PC Build

We want a punchy GPU for this build and the Radeon RX 5700 XT PowerColor Dual Fan 8GB is currently priced at a competitive $379.99. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 20th Aug 2020 where we saw it for $379.. This PC graphics hardware selection is a nice price to performance option when looking to run Gotham Knights at 1080p ultra graphics. We expect to see some good FPS from this card at these specs.

We were looking to get a video card with at least 6GB of VRAM available onboard it, which acts an image data buffer between our video card and CPU. The Radeon RX 5700 XT PowerColor Dual Fan 8GB has 8GB, which is suitable at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Gotham Knights 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a cpu is largely dependent on the right motherboard. The CPU we are going to choose has the Socket AM4 socket type. So we have found the best priced and well featured mobo in the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4. The Ryzen 7 2700X processor will then fit in and accompany our Radeon RX 5700 XT PowerColor Dual Fan 8GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $214.69. A low end price for this CPU would be $99, which we saw it priced at on 7th Jul 2020.

At $54.99 the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard muscles its feature rich chipboard into today’s Gotham Knights PC build. We have checked the mobo prices and found that on 25th Jun 2020, this motherboard was priced at a low of $53.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Gotham Knights At The Right Price

One of the most important hardware parts of this computer is the system memory or RAM. To make sure our resolution target and frame rates are met we have chosen to put in Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz. This is currently priced at $50.99 and is well priced compared to the system memory market today. A price point for this RAM was down to $49.99 on 9th Jan 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Gotham Knights

So now that our core components are all in place we would expect to see around 64 FPS in Gotham Knights 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.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Gotham Knights would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 48 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 1440p graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 68 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

To ensure we are making a good choice with this Gotham Knights PC build we can check to see if it performs consistently across a variety of games. Some of the most popular games today include Baldurs Gate 3, Watch Dogs Legion and Cyberpunk 2077 so let’s see how this build handles them at 1080p. Starting with Baldurs Gate 3 we can expect to be seeing an Ultra FPS of 80 and at High settings an FPS of 112 frames. In comparison Watch Dogs Legion is likely to see an Ultra FPS of around 84, improving to 118 FPS on High settings. Lastly Cyberpunk 2077 will see an Ultra FPS of around 82 which improves to a 115 FPS on High settings.

An Alternative Gotham Knights Graphics Card Option for 1080p

As an alternative to the AMD manufactured video card we have gone for in this PC, you could also consider the similarly powerful Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Asus Dual Advanced 8GB. It has a 3% worse performance difference compared to our selected Radeon RX 5700 XT PowerColor Dual Fan 8GB. Obviously we have chosen it as the cheapest price to performance offering in this range. It is currently priced at $379.99.
