Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Observer_ PC Build

We want a punchy GPU for this build and the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB is currently priced at a competitive $175.45. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 5th Feb 2020 where we saw it for $123.99.. This PC graphics hardware selection is a nice price to performance option when looking to run Observer_ at 1080p ultra graphics. We expect to see some good FPS from this card at these specs.

Selecting The Right Observer_ 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 i3-8100 4-Core 3.6GHz processor will then fit in and accompany our Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $136.17. Looking through our data we can see the lowest price for this cpu was on 13th Dec 2019, which had it marked up at $109.99.

At $49.46 the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard muscles its feature rich chipboard into today’s Observer_ PC build. To offer motherboard pricing insight we spotted this being sold for a low price of $32.99, which was recorded at 28th Dec 2019.

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

The Observer_ 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 Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz which we have found for $32.99 is among the best price system memory at the moment. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $32.99, and this was on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Observer_

We reckon these hardware components in our PC build will get 97 FPS at high settings in game and you could improve the graphics up to Ultra and see a FPS of 70 at 1080p.

If this 1080p build was to run Observer_ at 1440p Ultra, by increasing its screen size, then the FPS it would return on High would be around an average of 74 FPS. At Ultra we expect the average to be 53.

How this build performs for other popular games

We should check some other games performance with our Observer_ PC. Looking at some other popular games today, to see how the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB and this setup will run on 1080p.

An Alternative Observer_ Graphics Card Option for 1080p

While we have suggested a AMD graphics card for this build you can also consider putting in a Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050 Ti 4GB, which is similar, with a 8% worse performance difference, but provides another reasonable alternative graphics option. It is currently priced at $139.99.
