Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running GT7 at 1440p would be pulling in about 67 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 48 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

To buy this GT7 PC we will still want it to do ok when running other popular games. So to give us an idea about our builds performance lets see how it deals these 3 popular games at 1080p. Forza Horizon 5 will be expecting a Ultra FPS of 63 and a High setting FPS of 88 frames. Star Citizen expects Ultra FPS around 63 which will improve to 88 FPS for High settings. Far Cry 6 is expected to be around 63 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 88 FPS on High settings.

An Alternative Gran Turismo 7 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Perhaps you are after a AMD graphics card rather than the one we have added to this build. If so we would suggest the similar performing Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB, which has a 8% worse performance variation, but is still a suitable video card choice for this game. We have also considered the best value for performance based on today’s prices, with it costing $397.99 at the moment.
