Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p Minecraft RTX PC Build

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play Minecraft RTX at 1440p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The GeForce RTX 2080 Super Zotac Twin Fan 8GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $689.99 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 1440p. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce RTX 2080 Super Zotac Twin Fan 8GB is $679.99 on 29th Feb 2020. And we can see the card has dropped its price by $40 during the past two weeks.

Selecting The Right Minecraft RTX 1440p 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 i5-9500 6-Core 3.0GHz. This processor is currently priced at a competitive $208 and really works well with the GeForce RTX 2080 Super Zotac Twin Fan 8GB. The cheapest price we spotted this cpu for is $208, which was on 23rd May 2020.

Looking at motherboard prices and features the competitively priced $49.46 MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 certainly takes a well-deserved place in our 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 Minecraft RTX 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 RTX 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. A price point for this RAM was down to $29.49 on 2nd Feb 2020.
