Conan Exiles 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 27th Nov 2020

If you are asking yourself, I want to buy the best priced PC that can definitely run and meet Conan Exiles recommended requirements and more then today we will be looking to put together the ideal PC build for Conan Exiles. Our mission is a top end gaming solution for this game with top tier graphics options selected, returning the visuals upon a 1080p monitor screen. 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.

This title falls in the Sandbox 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 2018 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 Conan Exiles PC Build

Our challenge is not overpaying for hardware we dont need, but making sure we get enough performance from our system that we can play Conan Exiles at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $159.23 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 22nd Dec 2019 where we saw it for $426.41. With a price of $435.61 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

Our graphics card will need 8GB of VRAM built into it to act as a suitable buffer between our video card and chosen CPU. This graphics card has 8GB which will be plenty for this game at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Conan Exiles 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 5 2400G processor based around the shared Socket AM4 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Conan Exiles 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 $149.99. Looking through our price records we noticed that this processor was seen on 3rd Dec 2019 priced at $118.98.

Looking at motherboard prices and features the competitively priced $59.99 GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 certainly takes a well-deserved place in our build. This motherboard was priced at $53.99, which we saw on 25th Jun 2020. While monitoring prices this is the lowest we have seen it at.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Conan Exiles At The Right Price

System Memory is a significant part of any gaming computer. The build today finds the Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz to be the best price to performance RAM solution for our Conan Exiles PC. At last reckoning we priced it up at $32.99, 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. To provide a RAM pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz is $29.49 on 2nd Feb 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Conan Exiles

Now on to the frame rates for our Conan Exiles running on GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB at 1080p. We should see an average of 92 FPS on High settings or you could push up the quality to Ultra, which would get us 66 FPS.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

If we are looking for some larger screen resolutions with this computer, then Conan Exiles would return 50 FPS on 1440p at Ultra graphics setting. This FPS would improve to 70 FPS average at High settings.

How this build performs for other popular games

Ensuring our PC build for Conan Exiles runs some of the more popular games of today competently at 1080p is also something worth considering. Looking at Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War we see this pc build is likely to get 97FPS on Ultra and 135FPS on High graphics settings. In contrast we can expect World of Warcraft: Shadowlands to return 60FPS on Ultra and 83FPS when lowered to High. Another popular game at the moment is Microsoft Flight Simulator, which is 32 FPS running at Ultra, and 45 on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Conan Exiles 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 MSI Evoke 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 $397.99 at the moment.
