Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Halo Infinite PC Build

Obviously one of the most important components for this build is the graphics card. We can take a look at the best price to performance hardware right now to help deliver a system that can run Halo Infinite at 1080p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the Radeon RX 5700 XT ASRock Challenger D OC 8GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $379.99, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for Halo Infinite. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 5700 XT ASRock Challenger D OC 8GB is $349.99 on 5th May 2020.

Selecting The Right Halo Infinite 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To accompany the graphics option we have put a compatible motherboard into the build. The GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard in turn enables us to add the Ryzen 5 2600 processor that has the Socket AM4 socket. This CPU is a great fit for Halo Infinite and balances nicely with the Radeon RX 5700 XT ASRock Challenger D OC 8GB, to help reach the right frame rates at this resolution. We have of course chosen this CPU today because of its price to performance credentials where it is currently priced at $138.99. Looking through our data we can see the lowest price for this cpu was on 7th Jul 2020, which had it marked up at $59.9.

The awesome GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 is highly competitive, priced at $54.99, which provides it a position today in this gamer build. To help give some depth to the price points for this motherboard, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 was priced at $53.99 on 25th Jun 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Halo Infinite At The Right Price

Researching the correct system memory for our build means we need it to meet Halo Infinite requirements, with a view to running reliable FPS at Ultra settings leads us to Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz. Today it is one of the best priced RAM options at $53.99 and will certainly support the CPU and GPU well. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $53.99, and this was on 9th Jan 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Halo Infinite

With our key performance components in place we are expecting to see this setup running Halo Infinite at around 61 average frames per second, on 1080p screen resolution. This should be achieved on ultra graphics settings. If you turn a few graphics options down we expect around 85 FPS at high graphics.

Bumping up the in game screen resolution to 1440p our expected FPS would be 47 FPS at Ultra graphics setting or around 65 FPS on High.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new Halo Infinite PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1080p. Grand Theft Auto VI should get 55 when run on Ultra and this raises to 76 FPS on High. The popular Grounded gets a return of 104 FPS on Ultra and then up to 145 FPS when settings are dropped to High. Then there is Assassins Creed: Valhalla, which is popular at the moment, which is returning 41 FPS run at Ultra and 61 frames on High.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Halo Infinite

We opted for this higher quality gaming mouse, Cooler Master MM710, because it would cater to the Shooter, Online, Action genre type that Halo Infinite 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.

Halo Infinite Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

Halo Infinite falls within the following game genre grouping, Shooter, Online, Action, and as such places additional demands on the audio output you should be considering to enjoy this game. So the headset selection we have gone for is looking at a selection of better quality headsets. We are still choosing the best value headset available, it will not be the absolute cheapest you can find, because we have selected it from a better quality grouping, to help deliver the ideal build for this game. We have gone for the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1 for our initial build, which provides some great sounds at a reasonable price. You will see a button next to the headset name in the PC build list above, where you can see a few other headsets we have picked out, that are good value today.

An Alternative Halo Infinite Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are wanting a graphics choice from the other team then our suggestion would be the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Asus Dual Advanced 8GB video card, currently priced at $379.99. This option has a performance of 4% worse when compared to the Radeon RX 5700 XT ASRock Challenger D OC 8GB and completely capable of offering a good gpu alternative.
