Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Corruption 2029 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 Corruption 2029 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 Sapphire 8GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. Its price over the past couple of weeks has increased a bit by $10.62, which makes us think additional savings can be made here if you shop around. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 19th Dec 2019, which had it priced at $297.52. With a price of $308.14 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

We also want the graphics card to have at least 4GB VRAM onboard. The video card in this build has 8 which will act as a good data buffer between the processor and the graphics hardware.

Selecting The Right Corruption 2029 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Getting the motherboard selection right in this build helps us go on to choose a compatible cpu. With a good price today we find the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 with its LGA 1151 socket enables us to select the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz, which is priced right now at $147.25. Looking through our data we can see the lowest price for this cpu was on 16th Mar 2020, which had it marked up at $119.99.Now we have a great pairing in this rig allowing the CPU and GPU to work well together to get a solid Corruption 2029 experience for the best price point at 1080p.

At $49.46 the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard muscles its feature rich chipboard into today’s Corruption 2029 PC build. Our motherboard price records put this mobo’s price on 28th Dec 2019 at $32.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Corruption 2029 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 Corruption 2029 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 low price point for this Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz was spotted on 2nd Feb 2020, where we saw it at $29.49.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Corruption 2029

We reckon these hardware components in our PC build will get 78 FPS at high settings in game and you could improve the graphics up to Ultra and see a FPS of 56 at 1080p.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

If this 1080p build was to run Corruption 2029 at 1440p Ultra, by increasing its screen size, then the FPS it would return on High would be around an average of 60 FPS. At Ultra we expect the average to be 43.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new Corruption 2029 PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1080p. Far Cry 6 should get 52 when run on Ultra and this raises to 72 FPS on High. The popular eFootball PES 2021 gets a return of 148 FPS on Ultra and then up to 200+ FPS when settings are dropped to High. Then there is Watch Dogs Legion, which is popular at the moment, which is returning 78 FPS run at Ultra and 109 frames on High.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Corruption 2029

In today’s build we have chosen a higher performing mouse to better match the needs of this type of game. The Cooler Master MM710 is the best priced gaming mouse that meets our requirements.

An Alternative Corruption 2029 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

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 RTX 2060 Gigabyte Windforce OC 6GB, which has a 5% 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 $299.99 at the moment.
