Here we will create the best priced PC build to run Detroit: Become Human, 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 Detroit: Become Human really well, and for the best possible price today? And so our expectations are that this game will confidently run with ultra graphics settings, delivered via 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.
First off, to help us pull together the best hardware for this build, we have to understand a little bit about the type of game we are creating this computer for. Detroit: Become Human is a title which sits in the Adventure genre categories, which may influence our peripheral selection a bit, to help accommodate some of the particular requirements there. This game would have also been built on PC hardware during 2019 and before, which can suggest the sort of specced components a developer might have been using and hoping for their game to run on. Today we find it is not currently in our top most demanding games list and 77 in our list of popular games. While this extra info gives a good sense of what we want from our PC, nothing really replaces our value for money assessment based on live prices, when putting together this build.

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play Detroit: Become Human at 1080p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix OC 6GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $209.99 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. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 18th Dec 2019, which had it priced at $199.99.
Detroit: Become Human needs 4GB of VRAM to suitably store adequate amounts of image data during transfer between video card and processor. Our GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix OC 6GB graphics card has 6GB which will be suitable for this resolution of gaming.
The backbone of a pc build is the motherboard. Todays best price mobo, that gives us the Socket AM4 socket type is the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4. From here we can then put in to this game’s bespoke PC build the Ryzen 5 2600 processor, which works very well in achieving the desired performance levels at a good price point. Todays price for this computer processor is $119.92. A good point of reference is that the bottom recorded price we have for the Ryzen 5 2600 is $114.99 on 28th Nov 2019.
With the feature rich GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 priced competitively at $54.99 it is certainly in todays Detroit: Become Human build for a good reason. This motherboard was priced at $54.99, which we saw on 29th Nov 2019. While monitoring prices this is the lowest we have seen it at.
Our PC needs some well placed system memory to support our chosen CPU and GPU selections. As we are looking to achieve the 1080p ultra frame rates the OLOy 16GB (1x16GB) DDR4 2400MHz is currently priced at $49.99, which is among the better priced RAM today. A price point for this RAM was down to $47.89 on 7th Jan 2020.
So now that our core components are all in place we would expect to see around 63 FPS in Detroit: Become Human at 1080p resolution, on Ultra settings. Make some adjustments to the graphics options and you could boost this up to 88 FPS for High graphics settings.
Bumping up the in game screen resolution to 1440p our expected FPS would be 48 FPS at Ultra graphics setting or around 67 FPS on High.
To ensure we are making a good choice with this Detroit: Become Human PC build we can check to see if it performs consistently across a variety of games. Some of the most popular games today include Need For Speed Heat, Grand Theft Auto VI and FIFA 20 so let’s see how this build handles them at 1080p. Starting with Need For Speed Heat we can expect to be seeing an Ultra FPS of 63 and at High settings an FPS of 88 frames. In comparison Grand Theft Auto VI is likely to see an Ultra FPS of around 34, improving to 47 FPS on High settings. Lastly FIFA 20 will see an Ultra FPS of around 174 which improves to a 200+ FPS on High settings.
We opted for this higher quality gaming mouse, Redragon M711 Cobra, because it would cater to the Adventure genre type that Detroit: Become Human sits in. This is still the best priced mouse we had in our lists today, just a better quality peripheral than we might normally consider.
Why not switch out the graphics card in this build and replace it with a similarly powerful card from AMD. The AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB graphics card has a 7% better performance variation compared to the currently chosen video card. As the best price point for an alternative manufacturer in this range it currently costs $398.46.
