Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare PC Build

When selecting the right graphics card today we are specifically hunting for great price-to-performance gpus that can run Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare in ultra 1080p. Right now the best graphics card purchase for this game is the Radeon RX 550X 4GB, which will work really well at this screen resolution. It’s currently priced at $99.88, which puts it as one of the cheapest but best performers for this type of game. As a point of interest this graphics card has increased its price by $99.88 over the past two weeks.

We also want the graphics card to have at least 3GB VRAM onboard. The video card in this build has 4 which will act as a good data buffer between the processor and the graphics hardware.

Selecting The Right Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 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 3 3200G processor based around the shared Socket AM4 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 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 $193.74. Bottom prices recorded for this CPU was when we saw it at $83.59, which we noticed it on 17th Jun 2020.

Today the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 competitively costs $59.99, which provides it a place in our build today. To help give some depth to the price points for this motherboard, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 was priced at $51.88 on 18th Feb 2021.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare At The Right Price

Our Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare built PC needs some solid performing RAM to enable us to meet the game’s system requirement expectations and achieve the desired FPS at ultra 1080p.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare

This computer setup should be looking at getting 63 FPS on Ultra graphics at the 1080p screen size in Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare. We expect with a few tweaks to the settings this gaming PC will also get around 88 FPS at High settings, which will give you some frame rate performance to play around with.

Other Popular Game 1080p 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 Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare at 1440p would be pulling in about 67 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 48 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

When buying a gaming PC for a specific game we still expect it to run other popular games. So as a benchmark lets see how well todays best priced PC build can deal with these 3 games at 1080p. Forza Horizon 5 should get 63 FPS at Ultra settings and this goes up to 88 frames at High settings. FIFA 22 can get an Ultra FPS of 63 FPS and increases to 88 FPS for High. Days Gone is expected to be around 63 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 88 FPS on High settings.
