Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Cyberpunk 2077 PC Build

When selecting the right graphics card today we are specifically hunting for great price-to-performance gpus that can run Cyberpunk 2077 in ultra 1080p. Right now the best graphics card purchase for this game is the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, which will work really well at this screen resolution. It’s currently priced at $239.99, which puts it as one of the cheapest but best performers for this type of game. 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. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 where we saw it for $229.99.

Our PC build has 6GB 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 GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB we have met that graphical requirement.

Selecting The Right Cyberpunk 2077 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We have selected a ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard to allow us to then go on and add a great cpu for this Cyberpunk 2077 build. With a LGA 1151 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $167.87 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. A low end price for this CPU would be $119.99, which we saw it priced at on 16th Mar 2020.

And with the motherboard costing $72.99 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. We have checked the mobo prices and found that on 4th Apr 2020, this motherboard was priced at a low of $59.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Cyberpunk 2077 At The Right Price

The Cyberpunk 2077 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 Cyberpunk 2077

Running a PC build with these hardware components for Cyberpunk 2077 we expect to see about a 88 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 63 at 1080p.
