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

Choosing the graphics card needs to be done correctly and as we are putting together a gamer PC build for Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare at 1080p ultra graphics we want something with the best price today while returning the best performance for that price. This has led us to the Radeon RX 550X 4GB, which has a good price at the moment, as its currently priced at $99.88. And with that in mind the Radeon RX 550X 4GB is a great match for Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare at 1080p ultra. It will certainly help us get good FPS. we will highlight those FPS in more detail later in this article. 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

We have selected a GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard to allow us to then go on and add a great cpu for this Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare build. With a Socket AM4 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Ryzen 3 3200G, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $174.99 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. Looking through our data we can see the lowest price for this cpu was on 17th Jun 2020, which had it marked up at $83.59.

With a price tag today of $53.99, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare PC. A low price point for this motherboard would be $53.99, which we recorded it at on 25th Jun 2020.

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

One of the most important hardware parts of this computer is the system memory or RAM. To make sure our resolution target and frame rates are met we have chosen to put in Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. This is currently priced at $32.99 and is well priced compared to the system memory market today. The cheapest system memory price for Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz was recorded as $30.35, and this was on 29th Nov 2019.

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

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 88 FPS on High settings in Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare at 1080p. There may be some lower frame rates in some parts of the game, but we have chosen the components to get some solid frame rates. Increasing the quality in the game to Ultra, will see us still getting an FPS of 63.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 48 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 67 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

Lets take a look to see how this Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare PC build will run some other popular games today on 1080p. World of Warcraft: Shadowlands will get 0 on Ultra and 0 FPS on High graphics settings with the Radeon RX 550X 4GB. Whereas on Microsoft Flight Simulator we see a return of 3 FPS on Ultra and 4 FPS when lowered to High.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare

Selecting the right mouse for a game like Plants vs Zombies: Garden 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.

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

A game like this almost demands that you enjoy its accompanying audio. So we increased the range of quality headsets that we looked at for our PC Builds sound delivery solution. We have still chosen the best valued headset in this range, but it will deliver some clear gaming audio and is a comfortable headset to boot. We have paired this build with the Logitech G635 7.1. We felt it fit the build nicely without breaking the bank. But there are other options above in our curated headsets list, just press the associated button in our PC build component table above for some of our other best priced components.

An Alternative Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 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 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, which has a 118% 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 $239.99 at the moment.
