Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Drone Swarm PC Build

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play Drone Swarm at 1080p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The Radeon RX 560 2GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $99.99 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 1080p. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019 which had it priced at $99.99. Its price over the past couple of weeks has increased a bit by $99.99, which makes us think additional savings can be made here if you shop around.

Selecting The Right Drone Swarm 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Ryzen 5 2600X 6-Core 3.6GHz processor based around the shared Socket AM4 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Drone Swarm experience, that helps achieve steady frames at this resolution. The chosen cpu has itself been selected because it represents a good fit with the game and the price we found it at when comparing today’s cpu market prices, finding it currently priced at $199.99. Bottom prices recorded for this CPU was when we saw it at $119.99, which we noticed it on 28th Nov 2019.

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 Drone Swarm PC build. Our motherboard price records put this mobo’s price on 18th Feb 2021 at $51.88.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Drone Swarm At The Right Price

One of the more significant hardware components in this Drone Swarm build is the RAM. We are choosing some complementary and well priced Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. It is currently priced at $42.99. While among the best priced system memory for this build it will still provide us with the ability to reach our desired FPS for the 1080p ultra setting, that we have been focusing on with this PC. We looked through our records and saw that the RAM prices on 29th Nov 2019, represented a low price point $30.35. Which gives us an indication of how things sit today with the RAM price

In today’s build we have chosen a higher performing mouse to better match the needs of this type of game. The Cooler Master MM710 is the best priced gaming mouse that meets our requirements.

An Alternative Drone Swarm Graphics Card Option for 1080p

We considered this alternative graphics solution because it was also the best price point in this performance range. It is priced at $149.99 today.
