Sniper Elite 4 1440p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 12th Nov 2020

Here we will create the best priced PC build to run Sniper Elite 4, 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 Sniper Elite IV really well, and for the best possible price today? We will therefore be aiming to run this game confidently each time with max graphics running, while running on 1440p screen res. 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.

Sniper Elite 4 is currently not in our top demanding games list. It is also considered a Shooter, Stealth genre style game and happened to be built by the devs on hardware from 2017 and in the period leading up to this. This may be worth considering when understanding the performance requirements a PC for this title might be expected to have. It is currently not really figuring in our more popular games lists. All this background info will help us better choose the components today for this game PC build, but our main factor will of course be price to performance for each component and peripheral we choose below.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p Sniper Elite 4 PC Build

We want a punchy GPU for this build and the Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB is currently priced at a competitive $308.14. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 19th Dec 2019 where we saw it for $297.52..

Over the last few weeks we have noticed it increase its price by $10.62, proving that additional savings can be found you will just need to shop around.

We also want the graphics card to have at least 4GB VRAM onboard. The video card in this build has 8 which will act as a good data buffer between the processor and the graphics hardware.

Selecting The Right Sniper Elite 4 1440p Motherboard and CPU

Getting the motherboard selection right in this build helps us go on to choose a compatible cpu. With a good price today we find the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 with its LGA 1151 socket enables us to select the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz, which is priced right now at $161.88. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 16th Mar 2020 where we saw it for $119.99.Now we have a great pairing in this rig allowing the CPU and GPU to work well together to get a solid Sniper Elite 4 experience for the best price point at 1440p.

At $49.46 the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard muscles its feature rich chipboard into today’s Sniper Elite 4 PC build. A low recorded price for this motherboard was spotted on 28th Dec 2019 where it was $32.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Sniper Elite 4 At The Right Price

This is part of the gamers 3 core hardware components. Our Sniper Elite 4 built PC will need a correct amount of RAM while being found for the best price today. We have found the Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz to be well priced at $32.99 and will complement the Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB and Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz selections of our build, helping us to achieve the desired FPS at 1440p ultra settings. To help provide a sense of cost for this RAM, the Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz was priced at $29.49 on 2nd Feb 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1440p Ultra Settings on Sniper Elite 4

Now on to the frame rates for our Sniper Elite 4 running on Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB at 1440p. We should see an average of 84 FPS on High settings or you could push up the quality to Ultra, which would get us 60 FPS.

Upping the screen size to 4k for Sniper Elite IV using this build would return 50 frames per second on High settings. This would drop further to 36 when turning up to Ultra graphics.

How this build performs for other popular games

To ensure we are making a good choice with this Sniper Elite IV PC build we can check to see if it performs consistently across a variety of games. Some of the most popular games today include FIFA 21, Grand Theft Auto VI and Assassins Creed: Valhalla so let’s see how this build handles them at 1440p. Starting with FIFA 21 we can expect to be seeing an Ultra FPS of 181 and at High settings an FPS of 200+ frames. In comparison Grand Theft Auto VI is likely to see an Ultra FPS of around 38, improving to 53 FPS on High settings. Lastly Assassins Creed: Valhalla will see an Ultra FPS of around 51 which improves to a 71 FPS on High settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Sniper Elite 4

As Sniper Elite 4 falls into the Shooter, Stealth genre group, we have chosen to increase the quality of the mouse we are adding to our PC to help better meet the needs of the game. We have opted for the Cooler Master MM710, where this particular mouse is currently today’s best price but a more high performing gamer mouse than some of the other mice we normally choose in our builds.

Sniper Elite 4 Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

With a game like this, when considering audio options its best to pay a little more and enjoy the sort of sounds a game like this will deliver. The higher quality gaming headset we had in mind is the well priced Logitech G635 7.1, because it will cater to the Shooter, Stealth genre type that Sniper Elite 4 sits in. While the best priced headset we can see in this category today, there are a few other differently priced options you can take a look at in our curated gaming headset list above.

An Alternative Sniper Elite 4 Graphics Card Option for 1440p

Not everyone is a fan of team AMD, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested Nvidia card, the GeForce RTX 2060 Gigabyte Windforce OC 6GB. It is placed at 5% worse performance difference and certainly capable of delivering up Sniper Elite 4 frames on a par with our primary GPU selection. We have also selected it based on its price today, which finds it at $299.99.
