Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p Remnants 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 Remnants at 1440p 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 MSI Evoke OC 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 1440p. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 6th Dec 2019 which had it priced at $376.05. Todays price is $397.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. Its price over the past couple of weeks has increased a bit by $9.91, which makes us think additional savings can be made here if you shop around.

Selecting The Right Remnants 1440p 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 3600 6-Core 3.6GHz processor will then fit in and accompany our Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $199.99. Looking through our price records we noticed that this processor was seen on 7th Jul 2020 priced at $56.98.

The awesome GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 is highly competitive, priced at $59.99, which provides it a position today in this gamer build. Our motherboard price records put this mobo’s price on 18th Feb 2021 at $51.88.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Remnants At The Right Price

System Memory is a significant part of any gaming computer. The build today finds the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz to be the best price to performance RAM solution for our Remnants PC. At last reckoning we priced it up at $42.99, which is a cheap price for this amount of RAM. There are of course other options and configurations of system memory you might like to consider in your build. The cheapest system memory price for Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz was recorded as $30.35, and this was on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1440p Ultra Settings on Remnants

With our key performance components in place we are expecting to see this setup running Remnants at around 47 average frames per second, on 1440p screen resolution. This should be achieved on ultra graphics settings. If you turn a few graphics options down we expect around 65 FPS at high graphics.

Other Popular Game 1440p 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 Remnants at 4k would be pulling in about 39 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 28 if you were playing it at 4k Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Remnants PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Dying Light 2, Days Gone and Star Citizen. Starting with Dying Light 2 we can see that at 1440p we are likely to see 47FPS on Ultra and 65FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Days Gone likely to achieve 47FPS on Ultra and 65FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Star Citizen at Ultra setting we can expect 47 FPS, raising to 65 FPS on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Remnants Graphics Card Option for 1440p

Or you could put the GeForce RTX 2070 Asus Dual Advanced 8GB graphics card into this computer, if you are after an alternative Nvidia PC build. It has a 4% worse performance variation to the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB, so similar in capability and we have picked it as the best priced alternative manufacturer card, with a price of $379.99.
