Our key objective when putting together our next gaming PC is always going to be finding a great price point for the most performance we can. Today’s build we start by looking for the right graphics card, at the right price, that can run Scavengers at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB is $229.99 recorded at 28th Nov 2019.

Looking a little deeper at this cards pricing history shows this card has seen a drop in its price by $47.68 over the last two weeks.

Our graphics card will need 6GB of VRAM built into it to act as a suitable buffer between our video card and chosen CPU. This graphics card has 6GB which will be plenty for this game at this resolution.

We have also considered the best value for performance based on today’s prices, with it costing $899.98 at the moment.
