Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Prison Simulator 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 Prison Simulator at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. 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. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB is $229.99 on 28th Nov 2019. With a price of $239.99 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

The game also needs this graphics solution to deliver at least 6 GB VRAM to act as a buffer between the PC build’s video card and the processor.

Selecting The Right Prison Simulator 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The backbone of a pc build is the motherboard. Todays best price mobo, that gives us the LGA 1151 socket type is the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151. From here we can then put in to this game’s bespoke PC build the Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz processor, which works very well in achieving the desired performance levels at a good price point. Todays price for this computer processor is $200. Giving us a bit more of an insight we saw this processor being sold for a low price of $161.03, which was on 1st Dec 2020.

The ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard has a cost today of $72.99 that helps find it a place in today’s Prison Simulator build. Bottom motherboard prices recorded for this mobo was when we saw it at $59.99, on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Prison Simulator At The Right Price

This is part of the gamers 3 core hardware components. Our Prison Simulator built PC will need a correct amount of RAM while being found for the best price today.

A low price point for this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz was spotted on 29th Nov 2019, where we saw it at $30.35.

Other Popular Game 1080p 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 Prison Simulator at 1440p would be pulling in about 67 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 48 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

To buy this Prison Simulator PC we will still want it to do ok when running other popular games. So to give us an idea about our builds performance lets see how it deals these 3 popular games at 1080p. Resident Evil 8 will be expecting a Ultra FPS of 63 and a High setting FPS of 88 frames. Star Citizen expects Ultra FPS around 63 which will improve to 88 FPS for High settings. Forza Horizon 5 is expected to be around 63 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 88 FPS on High settings.

An Alternative Prison Simulator Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a Nvidia card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB instead, which comes with a 7% better performance adjustment when compared to GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $899.98 at the moment.
