Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 12th Aug 2020

This is a hand selected custom PC component build that will answer your question of, what PC should I buy next to play Dying Light 2 on. One that has the right gaming hardware to enjoy a great Dying Light 2 experience. Our mission is a top end gaming solution for this game on ultra graphics settings, and a 1080p screen resolution. As new gaming components are released for PC we will continue to review prices here each day and consider swapping in and out better components.

Before getting this build together we need to consider a few background characteristics about the game we are building this PC for. Dying Light 2 falls into the Action, Platformer, Strategy genre category groupings and would have been finished being developed during 2020 on hardware released around that period of time which may be a factor when we choose the type of hardware as it would need to be comparable in performance to hardware available from around this time. The game is not in our top demanding games lists. While these facts help us put together the best PC for the game we will still be selecting components based on the latest prices for the chosen peripherals and hardware for our build. Choosing today’s best priced items to give us an ideal PC build today for the game.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Dying Light 2 PC Build

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play Dying Light 2 at 1080p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $435.61 that we found it marked at today. It will certainly help return suitable FPS, which we will go into a bit later in the article, at ultra 1080p. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 22nd Dec 2019 and it was priced at $426.41. Watching this card over the past 2 weeks we have seen its price drop by $159.23, further supporting our selection in this hardware.

Selecting The Right Dying Light 2 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a cpu is largely dependent on the right motherboard. The CPU we are going to choose has the Socket AM4 socket type. So we have found the best priced and well featured mobo in the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4. The Ryzen 5 2600 processor will then fit in and accompany our GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $138.72. Our cheapest price recorded for the Ryzen 5 2600 was $59.9, which we spotted on 7th Jul 2020.

Having the competitive price tag of $54.99, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard’s strong price point today helps it stay in this Dying Light 2 PC build. Bottom motherboard prices recorded for this mobo was when we saw it at $53.99, on 25th Jun 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Dying Light 2 At The Right Price

This is part of the gamers 3 core hardware components. Our Dying Light 2 built PC will need a correct amount of RAM while being found for the best price today. We have found the Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz to be well priced at $49.99 and will complement the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB and Ryzen 5 2600 selections of our build, helping us to achieve the desired FPS at 1080p ultra settings. Our RAM recorded prices put this Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz price at $49.99 on 9th Jan 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Dying Light 2

Now on to the frame rates for our Dying Light 2 running on GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB at 1080p. We should see an average of 85 FPS on High settings or you could push up the quality to Ultra, which would get us 61 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

To get a more general understanding of how our PC build for Dying Light 2 performs we can look in to how it copes with some of the more popular games of today at 1080p. To begin we see that Horizon: Zero Dawn is expected to achieve 86FPS on Ultra and 120FPS on High graphics settings. Next up looking at Grounded we would find 86FPS on Ultra raising to 120FPS at High. For our last comparison, Microsoft Flight Simulator, we would likely achieve 97 FPS on Ultra and 135 FPS on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Dying Light 2

We have chosen a great valued but higher performing mouse today with the Cooler Master MM710 gaming mouse. We felt a better performance mouse would better suit Dying Light 2 because it falls into the Action, Platformer, Strategy genre groupings and would benefit from the extra mouse quality the Cooler Master MM710 delivers.

An Alternative Dying Light 2 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 5700 XT ASRock Challenger D OC 8GB instead, which comes with a 5% worse performance adjustment when compared to GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 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 $379.99 at the moment.
