Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Call of Duty Warzone 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 Call of Duty Warzone at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. 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. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 where we saw it for $229.99. With a price of $239.99 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

The game also needs this graphics solution to deliver at least 4 GB VRAM to act as a buffer between the PC build’s video card and the processor.

Selecting The Right Call of Duty Warzone 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a cpu is largely dependent on the right motherboard. The CPU we are going to choose has the LGA 1151 socket type. So we have found the best priced and well featured mobo in the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151. The Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz processor will then fit in and accompany our GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $142. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 16th Mar 2020 where we saw it for $119.99.

Chosen for price point, socket type and feature list, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 has a cost today of $49.46. To offer motherboard pricing insight we spotted this being sold for a low price of $32.99, which was recorded at 28th Dec 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Call of Duty Warzone At The Right Price

Our PC needs some well placed system memory to support our chosen CPU and GPU selections. As we are looking to achieve the 1080p ultra frame rates the Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz is currently priced at $47.99, which is among the better priced RAM today. To help provide a sense of cost for this RAM, the Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz was priced at $47.99 on 30th Oct 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Call of Duty Warzone

An Alternative Call of Duty Warzone Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a Nvidia card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB instead, which comes with a 7% better performance adjustment when compared to GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $574.99 at the moment.
