Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Genshin Impact PC Build

Obviously one of the most important components for this build is the graphics card. We can take a look at the best price to performance hardware right now to help deliver a system that can run Genshin Impact at 1080p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $239.99, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for Genshin Impact. Watching this card over the past 2 weeks we have seen its price drop by $47.68, further supporting our selection in this hardware. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB is $229.99 on 28th Nov 2019.

We also want the graphics card to have at least 6GB VRAM onboard. The video card in this build has 6 which will act as a good data buffer between the processor and the graphics hardware.

Selecting The Right Genshin Impact 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Ryzen 3 3200G processor based around the shared Socket AM4 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Genshin Impact 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 $99. Giving us a bit more of an insight we saw this processor being sold for a low price of $83.59, which was on 17th Jun 2020.

With a price tag today of $53.99, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the Genshin Impact PC. To provide a motherboard pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 is $53.99 on 25th Jun 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Genshin Impact At The Right Price

System Memory is a significant part of any gaming computer. The build today finds the Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz to be the best price to performance RAM solution for our Genshin Impact PC. At last reckoning we priced it up at $50.99, 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 $49.99 on 9th Jan 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Genshin Impact

This computer setup should be looking at getting 63 FPS on Ultra graphics at the 1080p screen size in Genshin Impact. We expect with a few tweaks to the settings this gaming PC will also get around 88 FPS at High settings, which will give you some frame rate performance to play around with.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running Genshin Impact at 1440p would be pulling in about 67 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 48 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

While we have put a great PC build together for Genshin Impact it’s important to understand how it handles some of the more popular games of today at 1080p. With this PC build we can expect that the popular game Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will get 59FPS on Ultra settings raising to 82FPS on High. On the other hand we see that Marvel's Avengers returns 56FPS on Ultra and 78FPS when lowered to High. Lastly FIFA 21 may see 174 FPS running at Ultra, and 200+ on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Genshin Impact Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are wanting a graphics choice from the other team then our suggestion would be the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB video card, currently priced at $579.99. This option has a performance of 7% better when compared to the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB and completely capable of offering a good gpu alternative.
