Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p Cyberpunk 2077 PC Build

Choosing the graphics card needs to be done correctly and as we are putting together a gamer PC build for Cyberpunk 2077 at 1440p ultra graphics we want something with the best price today while returning the best performance for that price. This has led us to the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, which has a good price at the moment, as its currently priced at $239.99. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019 which had it priced at $229.99. And with that in mind the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB is a great match for Cyberpunk 2077 at 1440p ultra. It will certainly help us get good FPS. we will highlight those FPS in more detail later in this article. Over the past couple of weeks this card has seen a price drop of $47.68, which lends us confidence in picking it as a good purchase for this game.

We also want the graphics card to have at least 6GB VRAM onboard. The video card in this build has 6 which will act as a good data buffer between the processor and the graphics hardware.

Selecting The Right Cyberpunk 2077 1440p Motherboard and CPU

To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz processor based around the shared LGA 1151 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Cyberpunk 2077 experience, that helps achieve steady frames at this resolution. The chosen cpu has itself been selected because it represents a good fit with the game and the price we found it at when comparing today’s cpu market prices, finding it currently priced at $167.87. Giving us a bit more of an insight we saw this processor being sold for a low price of $119.99, which was on 16th Mar 2020.

Looking at motherboard prices and features the competitively priced $72.99 ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 certainly takes a well-deserved place in our build. Our motherboard price records put this mobo’s price on 4th Apr 2020 at $59.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Cyberpunk 2077 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 1440p 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. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $59.99, and this was on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1440p Ultra Settings on Cyberpunk 2077

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 67 FPS on High settings in Cyberpunk 2077 at 1440p. There may be some lower frame rates in some parts of the game, but we have chosen the components to get some solid frame rates. Increasing the quality in the game to Ultra, will see us still getting an FPS of 48.

Other Popular Game 1440p 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 Cyberpunk 2077 at 4k would be pulling in about 40 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 28 if you were playing it at 4k Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

While we have put a great PC build together for Cyberpunk 2077 it’s important to understand how it handles some of the more popular games of today at 1440p. With this PC build we can expect that the popular game Battlefield 2042 will get 48FPS on Ultra settings raising to 67FPS on High. On the other hand we see that Far Cry 6 returns 48FPS on Ultra and 67FPS when lowered to High. Lastly FIFA 22 may see 48 FPS running at Ultra, and 67 on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Cyberpunk 2077 Graphics Card Option for 1440p

Perhaps you are after a AMD graphics card rather than the one we have added to this build. If so we would suggest the similar performing Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, which has a 7% better performance variation, but is still a suitable video card choice for this game. We have also considered the best value for performance based on today’s prices, with it costing $899.98 at the moment.
