Other Popular Game 1440p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Minute of Islands would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 29 FPS average, at 4k Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 4k graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 40 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

When buying a gaming PC for a specific game we still expect it to run other popular games. So as a benchmark lets see how well todays best priced PC build can deal with these 3 games at 1440p. Forza Horizon 5 should get 48 FPS at Ultra settings and this goes up to 68 frames at High settings. Far Cry 6 can get an Ultra FPS of 48 FPS and increases to 68 FPS for High. Back 4 Blood is expected to be around 48 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 68 FPS on High settings.

An Alternative Minute of Islands Graphics Card Option for 1440p

Not everyone is a fan of team AMD, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested Nvidia card, the GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB. It is placed at 4% better performance difference and certainly capable of delivering up Minute of Islands frames on a par with our primary GPU selection. We have also selected it based on its price today, which finds it at $219.99.
