We want something that can play Call of Duty: Vanguard at 1080p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $239.99 that we found it marked at today.

Our cheapest price recorded for the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz was $119.99, which we spotted on 16th Mar 2020.Now we have a great pairing in this rig allowing the CPU and GPU to work well together to get a solid Call of Duty: Vanguard experience for the best price point at 1080p.

Chosen for price point, socket type and feature list, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 has a cost today of $72.99. 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.

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
