Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p SCP Strategy 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 SCP Strategy 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 560 4GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. As a point of interest this graphics card has increased its price by $107.99 over the past two weeks. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019, which had it priced at $107.99. With a price of $107.99 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

We also want the graphics card to have at least 2GB VRAM onboard. The video card in this build has 4 which will act as a good data buffer between the processor and the graphics hardware.

Selecting The Right SCP Strategy 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We are choosing a well rounded and best priced motherboard (the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151), that can provide us with the cpu LGA 1151 socket type. This is so we can select the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz that has the best price to performance position today, at $157.5. Bottom prices recorded for this CPU was when we saw it at $59, which we noticed it on 27th May 2020.This CPU and GPU provide the required SCP Strategy experience while maintaining the best price point at this 1080p resolution.

With the feature rich ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 priced competitively at $72.99 it is certainly in todays SCP Strategy build for a good reason. To provide a motherboard pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 is $59.99 on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For SCP Strategy At The Right Price

The SCP Strategy PC we are building will want some supporting RAM to help our CPU and GPU selections to deliver the right FPS. We are still focusing on achieving 1080p ultra and so the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz which we have found for $42.99 is among the best price system memory at the moment. 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

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on SCP Strategy

Running a PC build with these hardware components for SCP Strategy we expect to see about a 89 FPS average, with a few low frame rates in some of the more intense scenes. You could up the quality of game graphics to Ultra, which will see the FPS drop to 64 at 1080p.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

If this 1080p build was to run SCP Strategy at 1440p Ultra, by increasing its screen size, then the FPS it would return on High would be around an average of 68 FPS. At Ultra we expect the average to be 48.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new SCP Strategy PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1080p. Forza Horizon 5 should get 64 when run on Ultra and this raises to 89 FPS on High. The popular Battlefield 2042 gets a return of 64 FPS on Ultra and then up to 89 FPS when settings are dropped to High. Then there is Grand Theft Auto VI, which is popular at the moment, which is returning 64 FPS run at Ultra and 89 frames on High.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For SCP Strategy

We have opted for the Cooler Master MM710 because we feel it is a higher performance gaming mouse that will meet the needs of this title. When looking at a mouse for a game that sits in the , Strategy, Sim game grouping we often consider paying a little bit more to get a better suited peripheral for the task. We have still chosen the best priced mouse we could find today that meets this need.

An Alternative SCP Strategy Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a AMD card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050 instead, which comes with a 4% worse performance adjustment when compared to Radeon RX 560 4GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $149.99 at the moment.
