Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 30th Nov 2020

Our objective here is to enable us to explore what PC we could buy that can play Starport Delta, where we carefully find the right hardware components that can run Starport Delta and meet its gaming needs while also heavily factoring in today’s best hardware component prices. We are going to choose these parts with the aim of keeping a high FPS rate with the highest ultra graphics, getting its visuals from a 1080p resolution monitor screen.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Starport Delta 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 Starport Delta at 1080p 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 GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB. 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 1080p. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 and it was priced at $229.99. Todays price is $239.99 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 $47.68 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

Selecting The Right Starport Delta 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz processor based around the shared LGA 1151 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Starport Delta experience, that helps achieve steady frames at this resolution. The chosen cpu has itself been selected because it represents a good fit with the game and the price we found it at when comparing today’s cpu market prices, finding it currently priced at $158.5. Bottom prices recorded for this CPU was when we saw it at $119.99, which we noticed it on 16th Mar 2020.

Today the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 competitively costs $49.46, which provides it a place in our build today. 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 Starport Delta At The Right Price

One of the more significant hardware components in this Starport Delta build is the RAM. We are choosing some complementary and well priced Patriot Viper Elite 16GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz.

While among the best priced system memory for this build it will still provide us with the ability to reach our desired FPS for the 1080p ultra setting, that we have been focusing on with this PC.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Starport Delta

We have opted for the Cooler Master MM710 because we feel it is a higher performance gaming mouse that will meet the needs of this title. When looking at a mouse for a game that sits in the Strategy, Sim game grouping we often consider paying a little bit more to get a better suited peripheral for the task. We have still chosen the best priced mouse we could find today that meets this need.

An Alternative Starport Delta Graphics Card Option for 1080p

The AMD option for this build would be the 7% better performance difference Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB graphics card and certainly a viable choice for Starport Delta. We considered this alternative graphics solution because it was also the best price point in this performance range. It is priced at $699.99 today.
