Madden NFL 19 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 27th May 2020

I want to buy a best priced gaming PC that can run Madden NFL 19 on Ultra. This is what we will be looking to explore and maintain in our review page here today. So we are finding the best priced peripherals and hardware for a new PC build that can run Madden NFL 19 In doing this we keep in mind our need to deliver the game reliably at top end graphics settings, pushing out visuals on 1080p screen size. These hardware items found in our build will continue to have their prices checked and components will be swapped in and out as we feel better hardware for our build is released.

This title falls in the Sport, Sim genre category, which itself can influence the type of hardware we might consider for this build. Something we sometimes dont consider is that the game would be developed in 2018 and therefore on hardware from around that period of time. We can also assume that hardware from around that period would be part of the targeted hardware, in terms of performance, by the developers, as they provide graphical options for the hardware capabilities available. It is currently not on our list of most demanding games. Also it is falling outside of our most popular games list at the moment. With this info in hand to help guide our hardware build choices we will now select today’s best priced components that meet these game characteristics.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Madden NFL 19 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 Madden NFL 19 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 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 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. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 29th Nov 2019 which had it priced at $137.35. Todays price is $179.9 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $10.09 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

Selecting The Right Madden NFL 19 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 i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz processor will then fit in and accompany our Radeon RX 560 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $74.99. Our cheapest price recorded for the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz was $59, which we spotted on 27th May 2020.

With a price tag today of $49.46, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the Madden NFL 19 PC. We have checked the mobo prices and found that on 28th Dec 2019, this motherboard was priced at a low of $32.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Madden NFL 19 At The Right Price

Our Madden NFL 19 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.

Lowest RAM prices were recorded for this Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz when we saw it priced at $29.49, on 2nd Feb 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Madden NFL 19

Or you could put the GeForce GTX 2050 graphics card into this computer, if you are after an alternative Nvidia PC build. It has a 4% worse performance variation to the Radeon RX 560 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB, so similar in capability and we have picked it as the best priced alternative manufacturer card, with a price of $149.99.
