Fantastic Contraption 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 17th Jan 2021

If you are asking yourself, I want to buy the best priced PC that can definitely run and meet Fantastic Contraption recommended requirements and more then today we will be looking to put together the ideal PC build for Fantastic Contraption. And so our expectations are that this game will confidently run with ultra settings selected, pushing out visuals on 1080p screen size. Every day we run through our carefully chosen gaming hardware and cherry pick today’s lowest priced hardware components to help us achieve this optimum PC build list.

Let’s consider some of the interesting characteristics about this game, to help us build something that matches the sort of game we are considering to build a PC for. As we know it comes under the Sandbox genre style categories, which may well influence some of our peripheral selections, ensuring we consider the specifics for the games requirements. Looking at its development the game was built during 2016 and around that period and the devs themselves probably had hardware comparable to some of the latest hardware of that period. In terms of its relative hardware demanding position, it is considered by us as not featuring on our list of most demanding games of today at least at the moment, although that list shifts regularly. Obviously these points help give us a better picture of what we may want in the build, but they are only supporting us because when we choose, it is the best priced components that will find their way into this build today.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Fantastic Contraption PC Build

When putting this sort of PC together we want great value for money but a machine that can deliver solid FPS on Fantastic Contraption at 1080p ultra graphics. We have selected the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB today as a well placed option. The price for this card today is $164.99 which really helped mark it as a good fit.For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Dec 2019 and it was priced at $159. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $14.01 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

Selecting The Right Fantastic Contraption 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a well priced motherboard, like the one we are putting in our build today really helps tie things together in terms of performance and opens up other hardware options that become available to us later in the selection. The MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard is at a great price point and lets us select our desired LGA 1151 cpu. As the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB wants a suitable good pairing when looking to run Fantastic Contraption well at this resolution. The Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz is currently priced at a competitive $129.25. You can get this processor for $59, which we saw it at that price on 27th May 2020. This is the lowest we have seen it at while watching processor prices.

With the feature rich MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 priced competitively at $49.46 it is certainly in todays Fantastic Contraption build for a good reason. To offer motherboard pricing insight we spotted this being sold for a low price of $32.99, which was recorded at 28th Dec 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Fantastic Contraption At The Right Price

To make sure we meet the Fantastic Contraption system requirements and to help us achieve the required FPS for Ultra at 1080p we have chosen the Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $32.99 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely. To provide a bit of system memory pricing insight, we spotted this Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz being sold for a low price of $29.49 on 2nd Feb 2020.
