Esper 2 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 14th Nov 2020

Here we will create the best priced PC build to run Esper 2, 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 Esper 2 really well, and for the best possible price today? And so our expectations are that this game will confidently run with max graphics running, running 1080p as the native screen size. 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.

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 Puzzler, Adventure 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 2015 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.
