Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PC Build

Our key objective when putting together our next gaming PC is always going to be finding a great price point for the most performance we can. Today’s build we start by looking for the right graphics card, at the right price, that can run Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019 which had it priced at $229.99. Todays price is $239.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. 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.

This build will need to have at least 4GB of VRAM onboard the graphics card, to act as an image data store between the GPU and CPU. Our selected builds graphics card has 6GB, which is plenty for getting suitable gaming at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The backbone of a pc build is the motherboard. Todays best price mobo, that gives us the LGA 1151 socket type is the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151. From here we can then put in to this game’s bespoke PC build the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz processor, which works very well in achieving the desired performance levels at a good price point. Todays price for this computer processor is $167.87. A good point of reference is that the bottom recorded price we have for the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz is $119.99 on 16th Mar 2020.

Having the competitive price tag of $72.99, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard’s strong price point today helps it stay in this Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PC build. A low price point for this motherboard would be $59.99, which we recorded it at on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Call of Duty: Modern Warfare At The Right Price

The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 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. To provide a RAM pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

So now that our core components are all in place we would expect to see around 59 FPS in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at 1080p resolution, on Ultra settings. Make some adjustments to the graphics options and you could boost this up to 82 FPS for High graphics settings.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 45 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 1440p graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 62 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Back 4 Blood, Grand Theft Auto VI and Far Cry 6. Starting with Back 4 Blood we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 59FPS on Ultra and 82FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Grand Theft Auto VI likely to achieve 59FPS on Ultra and 82FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Far Cry 6 at Ultra setting we can expect 59 FPS, raising to 82 FPS on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Selecting the right mouse for a game like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has encouraged us to increase the quality of the mouse we would add to our build. As the game sits in the , Shooter genre list we felt that the Cooler Master MM710 mouse is today’s best priced but higher performing gaming mouse for this particular computer setup.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

And now we move on to the PC’s audio selection, namely the gaming headset. We were looking to add a higher quality headset with this game’s PC build because it will help us enjoy the sort of game cues this type of game can offer. The headset that offers the best price today is the Logitech G635 7.1, delivering nice clear audio and a comfortable fitting at a good price. Check out the headset list above to see some alternative headsets available today for a good price.

An Alternative Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are wanting a graphics choice from the other team then our suggestion would be the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB video card, currently priced at $899.98. This option has a performance of 7% better when compared to the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB and completely capable of offering a good gpu alternative.
