Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Black Myth: Wu Kong PC Build

Not wanting to pay over the odds for hardware we dont actually need, is a gamers primary objective when building their next PC. But obviously in this specific PC build we want to ensure enough we choose something with enough performance capability to run Black Myth: Wu Kong at 1080p ultra graphics options. We have taken a look at a whole bunch of graphics card prices today and compared them to the hardware’s gaming performance and our choice for this game is the Radeon RX 5700 XT PowerColor Dual Fan 8GB. We will get into its expected FPS for this game a bit later in the article, but for now we know it will deliver reliable frame rates at ultra 1080p. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 20th Aug 2020 which had it priced at $379. Todays price is $379.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today.

Our graphics card will need 6GB of VRAM built into it to act as a suitable buffer between our video card and chosen CPU. This graphics card has 8GB which will be plenty for this game at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Black Myth: Wu Kong 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 5 2600 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 $140.09. A good point of reference is that the bottom recorded price we have for the Ryzen 5 2600 is $59.9 on 7th Jul 2020.

With the feature rich GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 priced competitively at $62.31 it is certainly in todays Black Myth: Wu Kong build for a good reason. To offer motherboard pricing insight we spotted this being sold for a low price of $53.99, which was recorded at 25th Jun 2020.

We are still focusing on achieving 1080p ultra and so the Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz which we have found for $50.99 is among the best price system memory at the moment. The cheapest system memory price for Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz was recorded as $49.99, and this was on 9th Jan 2020.

If you are looking for a graphics card from Nvidia instead of the one we have selected in this build then you could try GeForce RTX 2070 Asus Dual Advanced 8GB, which has a 3% worse performance difference, so still similar capabilities. We have chosen it based on its price-performance figure as well, as it is currently priced at $379.99.
