Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Chivalry 2 PC Build

Our challenge is not overpaying for hardware we dont need, but making sure we get enough performance from our system that we can play Chivalry 2 at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. As a point of interest this graphics card has increased its price by $9.91 over the past two weeks. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 6th Dec 2019 where we saw it for $376.05. With a price of $397.99 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

This build will need to have at least 8GB of VRAM onboard the graphics card, to act as an image data store between the GPU and CPU. Our selected builds graphics card has 8GB, which is plenty for getting suitable gaming at this resolution.

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 Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB wants a suitable good pairing when looking to run Chivalry 2 well at this resolution. The Core i7-9700F 8-Core 3.0GHz is currently priced at a competitive $267.1. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 2nd Dec 2020 where we saw it for $209.99.

The awesome MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 is highly competitive, priced at $49.46, which provides it a position today in this gamer build. 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 Chivalry 2 At The Right Price

The Chivalry 2 PC we are building will want some supporting RAM to help our CPU and GPU selections to deliver the right FPS. We are still focusing on achieving 1080p ultra and so the Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 RAM 2666MHz which we have found for $52.99 is among the best price system memory at the moment. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $32.99, and this was on 7th Aug 2020.
