Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Lab Rags PC Build

Getting the right graphics card is a good way to start any game PC build. So lets take a look for the best price to performance gpu hardware available right now, that isnt overpowered for this game but will still run Lab Rags at 1080p ultra settings. Today’s prices for graphics cards lead us to the Radeon RX 560 XFX Single Fan OC 4GB as the smartest GPU option for this computer and one that will deliver some good frame rates at this gaming resolution at ultra. Over the last few weeks we have noticed it increase its price by $13.43, proving that additional savings can be found you will just need to shop around. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 and it was priced at $109.99. Todays price of $144.37 is certainly a good price for this hardware, considering the performance returns are a good match for this game.

Our PC build has 4GB of onboard card memory to act as an image data store between the GPU and CPU. At this resolution the game will need at least 2GB of VRAM from our PC build. So with the selected Radeon RX 560 XFX Single Fan OC 4GB we have met that graphical requirement.

Selecting The Right Lab Rags 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To accompany the graphics option we have put a compatible motherboard into the build. The ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard in turn enables us to add the Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz processor that has the LGA 1151 socket. This CPU is a great fit for Lab Rags and balances nicely with the Radeon RX 560 XFX Single Fan OC 4GB, to help reach the right frame rates at this resolution. We have of course chosen this CPU today because of its price to performance credentials where it is currently priced at $200. Bottom prices recorded for this CPU was when we saw it at $161.03, which we noticed it on 1st Dec 2020.

Chosen for price point, socket type and feature list, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 has a cost today of $72.99. A low recorded price for this motherboard was spotted on 4th Apr 2020 where it was $59.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Lab Rags 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 Lab Rags 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. A price point for this RAM was down to $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Lab Rags

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 84 FPS on High settings in Lab Rags at 1080p. There may be some lower frame rates in some parts of the game, but we have chosen the components to get some solid frame rates. Increasing the quality in the game to Ultra, will see us still getting an FPS of 60.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Lab Rags would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 46 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 64 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Lab Rags PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Battlefield 2042, Days Gone and Far Cry 6. Starting with Battlefield 2042 we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 60FPS on Ultra and 84FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Days Gone likely to achieve 60FPS on Ultra and 84FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Far Cry 6 at Ultra setting we can expect 60 FPS, raising to 84 FPS on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Lab Rags Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Or you could put the GeForce GTX 2050 graphics card into this computer, if you are after an alternative Nvidia PC build. It has a 5% worse performance variation to the Radeon RX 560 XFX Single Fan OC 4GB, so similar in capability and we have picked it as the best priced alternative manufacturer card, with a price of $149.99.
