Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 25th Oct 2020

What is the best PC to buy for Assassins Creed: Unity? This is where our curated PC build coverage today will find us listing out today’s best priced computer hardware and peripherals to meet the demands that a game like Assassins Creed: Unity might put on the gaming PC. Of course our sights are set on returning a good level expereince at the highest graphics settings, while running on 1080p screen res. Todays prices will be checked every few hours to make sure only the best hardware at the best prices will be displayed for this build.

This title falls in the Adventure, Action genre category, which itself can influence the type of hardware we might consider for this build. Something we sometimes dont consider is that the game would be developed in 2014 and therefore on hardware from around that period of time. We can also assume that hardware from around that period would be part of the targeted hardware, in terms of performance, by the developers, as they provide graphical options for the hardware capabilities available. It is currently not on our list of most demanding games. Also it is falling outside of our most popular games list at the moment. With this info in hand to help guide our hardware build choices we will now select today’s best priced components that meet these game characteristics.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Assassins Creed: Unity PC Build

We want a punchy GPU for this build and the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB is currently priced at a competitive $164.99. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB is $159 recorded at 28th Dec 2019.. This PC graphics hardware selection is a nice price to performance option when looking to run Assassins Creed: Unity at 1080p ultra graphics. We expect to see some good FPS from this card at these specs. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $14.01 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

Assassins Creed: Unity needs 3GB of VRAM to suitably store adequate amounts of image data during transfer between video card and processor. Our Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB graphics card has 8GB which will be suitable for this resolution of gaming.

Selecting The Right Assassins Creed: Unity 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We have selected a MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard to allow us to then go on and add a great cpu for this Assassins Creed: Unity build. With a LGA 1151 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $142.87 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. Looking through our price records we noticed that this processor was seen on 16th Mar 2020 priced at $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. 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 Assassins Creed: Unity At The Right Price

The Assassins Creed: Unity PC we are building will want some supporting RAM to help our CPU and GPU selections to deliver the right FPS. We are still focusing on achieving 1080p ultra and so the Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz which we have found for $32.99 is among the best price system memory at the moment. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $32.99, and this was on 2nd Feb 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Assassins Creed: Unity

With this current build we expect to see a return of 67 frames per second at ultra 1080p resolution in Assassins Creed: Unity. Adjust some of the graphics options and you could boost this up to 94 FPS for High graphics settings.

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 Assassins Creed: Unity at 1440p would be pulling in about 55 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 39 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new Assassins Creed: Unity PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1080p. Assassins Creed: Valhalla should get 38 when run on Ultra and this raises to 57 FPS on High. The popular FIFA 21 gets a return of 164 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 54 FPS run at Ultra and 75 frames on High.

An Alternative Assassins Creed: Unity Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a AMD card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix OC 6GB instead, which comes with a 5% better performance adjustment when compared to Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $209.99 at the moment.
