Today’s prices for graphics cards lead us to the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB as the smartest GPU option for this computer and one that will deliver some good frame rates at this gaming resolution at ultra. And we can see the card has dropped its price by $47.68 during the past two weeks. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019 which had it priced at $229.99. Todays price of $239.99 is certainly a good price for this hardware, considering the performance returns are a good match for this game.

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.

At $59.99 the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard muscles its feature rich chipboard into today’s Pulsar: Lost Colony PC build. Our motherboard price records put this mobo’s price on 18th Feb 2021 at $51.88.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Pulsar: Lost Colony At The Right Price

An Alternative Pulsar: Lost Colony Graphics Card Option for 1080p

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.
