Anno 2205 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 19th Jan 2021

Here we will create the best priced PC build to run Anno 2205, where it will meet the demands that a game like this will put on a custom PC. Our view is to answer the question, what PC should I buy that can play Anno 2205 really well, and for the best possible price today? Its therefore our desire to consistently keep stable frame rates on ultra graphics settings, and a 1080p screen resolution. These hardware items found in our build will continue to have their prices checked and components will be swapped in and out as we feel better hardware for our build is released.

Today we find Anno 2205 is not in our top demanding games list and currently not figuring in our more popular games lists of today. It also falls in under the Strategy, Management, Sandbox game genre types, which itself can influence some of our choices of hardware today, to make sure we better meet the hardware needs of the game. This sort of information will help us build a fuller picture and better understand what to select when putting our best build PC together for the game. Interestingly, it might be worth thinking about the performance of the hardware that the game was originally built on, which would have been from 2015 and shortly before. So the devs themselves may have been aiming for hardware with performance capability from this particular period.

We have also considered the best value for performance based on today’s prices, with it costing $164.99 at the moment.
