Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Doom 4 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 Doom 4 at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB 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 Dec 2019, which had it priced at $159. Todays price is $164.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. And we can see the card has dropped its price by $14.01 during the past two weeks.

Our graphics card will need 4GB 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 Doom 4 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a cpu is largely dependent on the right motherboard. The CPU we are going to choose has the LGA 1151 socket type. So we have found the best priced and well featured mobo in the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151. The Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz processor will then fit in and accompany our Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $142.87. Looking through our price records we noticed that this processor was seen on 16th Mar 2020 priced at $119.99.

With a price tag today of $49.46, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the Doom 4 PC. A low price point for this motherboard would be $32.99, which we recorded it at on 28th Dec 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Doom 4 At The Right Price

This is part of the gamers 3 core hardware components. Our Doom 4 built PC will need a correct amount of RAM while being found for the best price today. We have found the HyperX Fury 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz to be well priced at $30.99 and will complement the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB and Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz selections of our build, helping us to achieve the desired FPS at 1080p ultra settings. Lowest RAM prices were recorded for this HyperX Fury 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz when we saw it priced at $30.99, on 19th Oct 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Doom 4

This computer setup should be looking at getting 64 FPS on Ultra graphics at the 1080p screen size in Doom 4. We expect with a few tweaks to the settings this gaming PC will also get around 89 FPS at High settings, which will give you some frame rate performance to play around with.

Upping the screen size to 1440p for Doom 4 using this build would return 68 frames per second on High settings. This would drop further to 48 when turning up to Ultra graphics.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Doom 4 PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles FIFA 21, Cyberpunk 2077 and Watch Dogs Legion. Starting with FIFA 21 we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 164FPS on Ultra and 200+FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Cyberpunk 2077 likely to achieve 52FPS on Ultra and 73FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Watch Dogs Legion at Ultra setting we can expect 54 FPS, raising to 75 FPS on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Doom 4

With the increased demands this game’s genre, Shooter, Action, puts on our mouse selection we have chosen a higher performing mouse for this setup, while still ensuring it is the best value mouse today for this Doom 4 PC build.

Doom 4 Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

Finding a headset for a game that has been identified within the following genre groups, Shooter, Action, has given us reason to improve the quality of headset we are looking at adding into this build.. The best quality headset that also comes with the best price tag is the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1, which provides some great gaming audio. You can review some of the other headsets above, in our curated headset drop down list if you are wanting cheaper or perhaps even higher quality.

An Alternative Doom 4 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Perhaps you are after a Nvidia graphics card rather than the one we have added to this build. If so we would suggest the similar performing GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix OC 6GB, which has a 5% 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 $209.99 at the moment.
