Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Cruelty Squad 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 Cruelty Squad at 1080p ultra settings. Today’s prices for graphics cards lead us to the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB as the smartest GPU option for this computer and one that will deliver some good frame rates at this gaming resolution at ultra. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $47.68 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019 which had it priced at $229.99. Todays price of $239.99 is certainly a good price for this hardware, considering the performance returns are a good match for this game.

Our graphics card will need 6GB of VRAM built into it to act as a suitable buffer between our video card and chosen CPU. This graphics card has 6GB which will be plenty for this game at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Cruelty Squad 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 Cruelty Squad and balances nicely with the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, 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. Looking through our price records we noticed that this processor was seen on 1st Dec 2020 priced at $161.03.

With the feature rich ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 priced competitively at $72.99 it is certainly in todays Cruelty Squad build for a good reason. Our motherboard price records put this mobo’s price on 4th Apr 2020 at $59.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Cruelty Squad At The Right Price

Our PC needs some well placed system memory to support our chosen CPU and GPU selections. As we are looking to achieve the 1080p ultra frame rates the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is currently priced at $42.99, which is among the better priced RAM today. A price point for this RAM was down to $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Cruelty Squad

This computer setup should be looking at getting 63 FPS on Ultra graphics at the 1080p screen size in Cruelty Squad. We expect with a few tweaks to the settings this gaming PC will also get around 88 FPS at High settings, which will give you some frame rate performance to play around with.
