Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Hogwarts Legacy PC Build

Our key objective when putting together our next gaming PC is always going to be finding a great price point for the most performance we can. Today’s build we start by looking for the right graphics card, at the right price, that can run Hogwarts Legacy at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the GeForce RTX 2080 Asus Dual OC 8GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 18th Feb 2020 which had it priced at $529.99. Todays price is $529.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. Watching this card over the past 2 weeks we have seen its price drop by $99.96, further supporting our selection in this hardware.

Selecting The Right Hogwarts Legacy 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Getting the motherboard selection right in this build helps us go on to choose a compatible cpu. With a good price today we find the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 with its LGA 1151 socket enables us to select the Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz, which is priced right now at $200. The cheapest price we spotted this cpu for is $161.03, which was on 1st Dec 2020.Now we have a great pairing in this rig allowing the CPU and GPU to work well together to get a solid Hogwarts Legacy experience for the best price point at 1080p.

With a price tag today of $72.99, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the Hogwarts Legacy PC. A low price point for this motherboard would be $59.99, which we recorded it at on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Hogwarts Legacy At The Right Price

One of the more significant hardware components in this Hogwarts Legacy 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. Our RAM recorded prices put this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz price at $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Hogwarts Legacy

Our PC build can run Hogwarts Legacy at High graphics settings comfortably, returning a 1080p FPS of 88 and we would expect an average of 63 FPS on Ultra with the GeForce RTX 2080 Asus Dual OC 8GB, Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz combo we have put into this computer.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Hogwarts Legacy 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 67 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

We should check some other games performance with our Hogwarts Legacy PC. Looking at some other popular games today, to see how the GeForce RTX 2080 Asus Dual OC 8GB and this setup will run on 1080p. Star Citizen is expected to return 63 FPS when run on Ultra which increases to around 88 frames per second on High. Dying Light 2 would return 63 FPS on Ultra and then go up to 88 FPS at High settings. With Battlefield 2042 we expect 63 FPS running at Ultra settings and 88 frames on High settings.

An Alternative Hogwarts Legacy Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Or you could put the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB graphics card into this computer, if you are after an alternative AMD PC build. It has a 8% worse performance variation to the GeForce RTX 2080 Asus Dual OC 8GB, so similar in capability and we have picked it as the best priced alternative manufacturer card, with a price of $397.99.
