Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p Boneworks 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 Boneworks at 1440p 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 GeForce RTX 2080 Super Zotac Twin Fan 8GB. 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 1440p. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 29th Feb 2020 and it was priced at $679.99. Todays price is $689.99 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 $40 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

Selecting The Right Boneworks 1440p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a well priced motherboard, like the one we are putting in our build today really helps tie things together in terms of performance and opens up other hardware options that become available to us later in the selection. The MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard is at a great price point and lets us select our desired LGA 1151 cpu. As the GeForce RTX 2080 Super Zotac Twin Fan 8GB wants a suitable good pairing when looking to run Boneworks well at this resolution. The Core i7-9700K 8-Core 3.6GHz is currently priced at a competitive $259.99. The cheapest price we spotted this cpu for is $259.99, which was on 23rd Nov 2020.

Having the competitive price tag of $49.46, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard’s strong price point today helps it stay in this Boneworks PC build. A low price point for this motherboard would be $32.99, which we recorded it at on 28th Dec 2019.

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

Our Boneworks 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 1440p.

This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $32.99, and this was on 30th Oct 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1440p Ultra Settings on Boneworks

Our PC build can run Boneworks at High graphics settings comfortably, returning a 1440p FPS of 68 and we would expect an average of 49 FPS on Ultra with the GeForce RTX 2080 Super Zotac Twin Fan 8GB, Core i7-9700K 8-Core 3.6GHz combo we have put into this computer.

Other Popular Game 1440p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Boneworks would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 29 FPS average, at 4k Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 4k graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 41 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new Boneworks PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1440p. Horizon: Zero Dawn should get 57 when run on Ultra and this raises to 80 FPS on High. The popular Assassins Creed: Valhalla gets a return of 56 FPS on Ultra and then up to 78 FPS when settings are dropped to High. Then there is Genshin Impact, which is popular at the moment, which is returning 70 FPS run at Ultra and 98 frames on High.

An Alternative Boneworks Graphics Card Option for 1440p

Perhaps you are after a Nvidia graphics card rather than the one we have added to this build. If so we would suggest the similar performing GeForce GTX 2060 3GB GDDR5, which has a 100% worse performance variation, but is still a suitable video card choice for this game. We have also considered the best value for performance based on today’s prices, with it costing $319.99 at the moment.
