This can influence some of the peripheral selections we make, as we will be wanting to make sure that the components we choose are complementary to the games needs.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Final Fantasy XV PC Build

When selecting the right graphics card today we are specifically hunting for great price-to-performance gpus that can run Final Fantasy XV in ultra 1080p. Right now the best graphics card purchase for this game is the Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB, which will work really well at this screen resolution. It’s currently priced at $308.14, which puts it as one of the cheapest but best performers for this type of game. Looking a little deeper at this cards pricing history shows this card has increased its price by $10.62 over the past two weeks. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB is $297.52 on 19th Dec 2019.

Our graphics card will need 11GB of VRAM built into it to act as a suitable buffer between our video card and chosen CPU. This graphics card has 8GB which will be plenty for this game at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Final Fantasy XV 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Ryzen 5 2600 processor based around the shared Socket AM4 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Final Fantasy XV 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 $185.99. A low end price for this CPU would be $59.9, which we saw it priced at on 7th Jul 2020.

And with the motherboard costing $59.99 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. A low recorded price for this motherboard was spotted on 18th Feb 2021 where it was $51.88.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Final Fantasy XV At The Right Price

To make sure we meet the Final Fantasy XV system requirements and to help us achieve the required FPS for Ultra at 1080p we have chosen the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $42.99 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $51.88, and this was on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Final Fantasy XV

So now that our core components are all in place we would expect to see around 79 FPS in Final Fantasy XV at 1080p resolution, on Ultra settings. Make some adjustments to the graphics options and you could boost this up to 110 FPS for High graphics settings.

An Alternative Final Fantasy XV Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are wanting a graphics choice from the other team then our suggestion would be the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Gigabyte Windforce OC 6GB video card, currently priced at $299.99. This option has a performance of 5% worse when compared to the Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB and completely capable of offering a good gpu alternative.
