Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Mosaic PC Build

Not wanting to pay over the odds for hardware we dont actually need, is a gamers primary objective when building their next PC. But obviously in this specific PC build we want to ensure enough we choose something with enough performance capability to run Mosaic at 1080p ultra graphics options. We have taken a look at a whole bunch of graphics card prices today and compared them to the hardware’s gaming performance and our choice for this game is the Radeon RX 560 4GB. We will get into its expected FPS for this game a bit later in the article, but for now we know it will deliver reliable frame rates at ultra 1080p. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 where we saw it for $107.99. Todays price is $107.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. Over the last few weeks we have noticed it increase its price by $107.99, proving that additional savings can be found you will just need to shop around.

Selecting The Right Mosaic 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We are choosing a well rounded and best priced motherboard (the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151), that can provide us with the cpu LGA 1151 socket type. This is so we can select the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz that has the best price to performance position today, at $129. You can get this processor for $59, which we saw it at that price on 27th May 2020. This is the lowest we have seen it at while watching processor prices.This CPU and GPU provide the required Mosaic experience while maintaining the best price point at this 1080p resolution.

And with the motherboard costing $49.46 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. To help give some depth to the price points for this motherboard, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 was priced at $32.99 on 28th Dec 2019.

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

As one of the 3 main system components, when considering a PC built for Mosaic, the correct RAM selection is obviously important. We are looking for something that is well priced but also capable of meeting the games requirements. The Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is well priced at $32.99 and fits with the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz and Radeon RX 560 4GB selections to ensure solid FPS at 1080p ultra settings. A low price point for this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz was spotted on 29th Nov 2019, where we saw it at $30.35.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Mosaic

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 87 FPS on High settings in Mosaic 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 62.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

If this 1080p build was to run Mosaic at 1440p Ultra, by increasing its screen size, then the FPS it would return on High would be around an average of 66 FPS. At Ultra we expect the average to be 47.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Mosaic PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Assassins Creed: Valhalla and Watch Dogs Legion. Starting with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 35FPS on Ultra and 49FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Assassins Creed: Valhalla likely to achieve 23FPS on Ultra and 34FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Watch Dogs Legion at Ultra setting we can expect 14 FPS, raising to 19 FPS on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Mosaic Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are wanting a graphics choice from the other team then our suggestion would be the Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050 video card, currently priced at $149.99. This option has a performance of 4% worse when compared to the Radeon RX 560 4GB and completely capable of offering a good gpu alternative.
