Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy PC Build

Our challenge is not overpaying for hardware we dont need, but making sure we get enough performance from our system that we can play Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. Over the last few weeks we have noticed it increase its price by $10.62, 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 19th Dec 2019 and it was priced at $297.52. With a price of $308.14 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

Our PC build has 8GB 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 6GB of VRAM from our PC build. So with the selected Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB we have met that graphical requirement.

At $59.99 the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard muscles its feature rich chipboard into today’s Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy PC build. This motherboard was priced at $51.88, which we saw on 18th Feb 2021. While monitoring prices this is the lowest we have seen it at.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy At The Right Price

To make sure we meet the Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy system requirements and to help us achieve the required FPS for Ultra at 1080p we have chosen the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $42.99 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely. We looked through our records and saw that the RAM prices on 29th Nov 2019, represented a low price point $30.35. Which gives us an indication of how things sit today with the RAM price
