Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Paragon PC Build

We want a punchy GPU for this build and the Radeon RX 550X 4GB is currently priced at a competitive $99.88. . This PC graphics hardware selection is a nice price to performance option when looking to run Paragon at 1080p ultra graphics. We expect to see some good FPS from this card at these specs. Over the last few weeks we have noticed it increase its price by $99.88, proving that additional savings can be found you will just need to shop around.

The game also needs this graphics solution to deliver at least 2 GB VRAM to act as a buffer between the PC build’s video card and the processor.

Selecting The Right Paragon 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The backbone of a pc build is the motherboard. Todays best price mobo, that gives us the Socket AM4 socket type is the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4. From here we can then put in to this game’s bespoke PC build the Ryzen 5 2400G processor, which works very well in achieving the desired performance levels at a good price point. Todays price for this computer processor is $149.99. Looking through our price records we noticed that this processor was seen on 3rd Dec 2019 priced at $118.98.

Looking at motherboard prices and features the competitively priced $53.99 GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 certainly takes a well-deserved place in our build. To offer motherboard pricing insight we spotted this being sold for a low price of $53.99, which was recorded at 25th Jun 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Paragon At The Right Price

The Paragon 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 Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz which we have found for $32.99 is among the best price system memory at the moment. The cheapest system memory price for Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz was recorded as $29.49, and this was on 2nd Feb 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Paragon

So now that our core components are all in place we would expect to see around 63 FPS in Paragon at 1080p resolution, on Ultra settings. Make some adjustments to the graphics options and you could boost this up to 88 FPS for High graphics settings.

Increasing the screen resolution for Paragon would mean this setup would be getting FPS that are 48 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. The FPS would go up to 67 FPS if the graphics settings at this resolution were lowered to High.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Paragon PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Watch Dogs Legion, Grand Theft Auto VI and Genshin Impact. Starting with Watch Dogs Legion we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 11FPS on Ultra and 16FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Grand Theft Auto VI likely to achieve 0FPS on Ultra and 0FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Genshin Impact at Ultra setting we can expect 12 FPS, raising to 16 FPS on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Paragon

We opted for this higher quality gaming mouse, Cooler Master MM710, because it would cater to the Shooter, Online genre type that Paragon sits in. This is still the best priced mouse we had in our lists today, just a better quality peripheral than we might normally consider.

Paragon Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

With a game like this, (which falls in the Shooter, Online genre group) we wanted to make sure the audio solution we go with was up to the task. A game like Paragon has encouraged us to increase the quality of the headset we choose as it will return a much better experience overall. Looking through the hardware lists available and reviewing today’s prices we felt that the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1 headset is the right way to go, delivering some great audio, clear, reliable, while still being the best priced mid range headset. We have a selection list for headsets above if you would like to consider some other options we have seen at a good price today.

An Alternative Paragon Graphics Card Option for 1080p

As an alternative to the AMD manufactured video card we have gone for in this PC, you could also consider the similarly powerful Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB. It has a 118% better performance difference compared to our selected Radeon RX 550X 4GB. Obviously we have chosen it as the cheapest price to performance offering in this range. It is currently priced at $239.99.
