Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Minecraft: Dungeons PC Build

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play Minecraft: Dungeons at 1080p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix 6GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $229.99 that we found it marked at today. It will certainly help return suitable FPS, which we will go into a bit later in the article, at ultra 1080p. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix 6GB is $229.99 on 28th Nov 2019. Watching this card over the past 2 weeks we have seen its price drop by $50, further supporting our selection in this hardware.

When choosing the right video card for this build, you need to make sure you have a graphics card with 2GB of VRAM or more. This memory is used by the card to store image data when moving it from the video card to the CPU. Our chosen build’s card has 6GB, which will be a suitable amount for this resolution.

Selecting The Right Minecraft: Dungeons 1080p Motherboard and CPU

MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard is today’s best buy mobo, that also provides us with the LGA 1151 cpu socket type. Which is ideal for the best performance to price processor we have seen for our build, the Core i3-9350KF 4-Core 4.0GHz. This processor is currently priced at a competitive $164.99 and really works well with the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix 6GB. A good point of reference is that the bottom recorded price we have for the Core i3-9350KF 4-Core 4.0GHz is $164.99 on 2nd Jul 2020.

And with the motherboard costing $49.46 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. Bottom motherboard prices recorded for this mobo was when we saw it at $32.99, on 28th Dec 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Minecraft: Dungeons At The Right Price

System Memory is a significant part of any gaming computer. The build today finds the Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz to be the best price to performance RAM solution for our Minecraft: Dungeons PC. At last reckoning we priced it up at $32.99, which is a cheap price for this amount of RAM. There are of course other options and configurations of system memory you might like to consider in your build. To provide a bit of system memory pricing insight, we spotted this Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz being sold for a low price of $29.49 on 2nd Feb 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Minecraft: Dungeons

Now on to the frame rates for our Minecraft: Dungeons running on GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix 6GB at 1080p. We should see an average of 88 FPS on High settings or you could push up the quality to Ultra, which would get us 63 FPS.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running Minecraft: Dungeons at 1440p would be pulling in about 67 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 48 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Minecraft: Dungeons PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Doom Eternal, Valorant and Death Stranding. Starting with Doom Eternal we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 130FPS on Ultra and 182FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Valorant likely to achieve 200+FPS on Ultra and 200+FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Death Stranding at Ultra setting we can expect 63 FPS, raising to 88 FPS on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Minecraft: Dungeons Graphics Card Option for 1080p

This option has a performance of 7% better when compared to the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix 6GB and completely capable of offering a good gpu alternative.
