Star Wars: Battlefront 2 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 23rd Feb 2020

If you are looking to build and buy your next PC to run Star Wars: Battlefront 2 then this list of custom curated components will give you a great jumping off point for your next gaming PC selection. We are going to choose these parts with the aim of keeping a high FPS rate with max graphics running, while running on 1080p screen res. The hardware selection should give us all a good jumping off point when considering what might prove a good build and price for a PC to run Star Wars: Battlefront 2. We will update prices here as they change and switch out components as new, better hardware is released.

Today we find Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is not in our top demanding games list and currently not figuring in our more popular games lists of today. It also falls in under the Shooter game genre types, which itself can influence some of our choices of hardware today, to make sure we better meet the hardware needs of the game. This sort of information will help us build a fuller picture and better understand what to select when putting our best build PC together for the game. Interestingly, it might be worth thinking about the performance of the hardware that the game was originally built on, which would have been from 2017 and shortly before. So the devs themselves may have been aiming for hardware with performance capability from this particular period.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Star Wars: Battlefront 2 PC Build

Our key objective when putting together our next gaming PC is always going to be finding a great price point for the most performance we can. Today’s build we start by looking for the right graphics card, at the right price, that can run Star Wars Battlefront 2 2017 at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix 6GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019 which had it priced at $229.99. Todays price is $229.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today.

We were looking to get a video card with at least 3GB of VRAM available onboard it, which acts an image data buffer between our video card and CPU. The GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix 6GB has 6GB, which is suitable at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Star Wars: Battlefront 2 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The backbone of a pc build is the motherboard. Todays best price mobo, that gives us the LGA 1151 socket type is the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151. From here we can then put in to this game’s bespoke PC build the Core i5-9600KF 6-Core 3.7GHz processor, which works very well in achieving the desired performance levels at a good price point. Todays price for this computer processor is $247.5. Looking through our data we can see the lowest price for this cpu was on 28th Nov 2019, which had it marked up at $199.99.

The awesome MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 is highly competitive, priced at $49.46, which provides it a position today in this gamer build. 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 Star Wars: Battlefront 2 At The Right Price

As one of the 3 main system components, when considering a PC built for Star Wars: Battlefront 2, the correct RAM selection is obviously important. We are looking for something that is well priced but also capable of meeting the games requirements. The Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz is well priced at $61.99 and fits with the Core i5-9600KF 6-Core 3.7GHz and GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix 6GB selections to ensure solid FPS at 1080p ultra settings. The cheapest system memory price for Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz was recorded as $49.99, and this was on 9th Jan 2020.

With our key performance components in place we are expecting to see this setup running Star Wars: Battlefront 2 at around 69 average frames per second, on 1080p screen resolution. This should be achieved on ultra graphics settings. If you turn a few graphics options down we expect around 96 FPS at high graphics.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Star Wars: Battlefront 2

In today’s build we have chosen a higher performing mouse to better match the needs of this type of game. The Razer DeathAdder Elite is the best priced gaming mouse that meets our requirements.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

A game like this almost demands that you enjoy its accompanying audio. So we increased the range of quality headsets that we looked at for our PC Builds sound delivery solution. We have still chosen the best valued headset in this range, but it will deliver some clear gaming audio and is a comfortable headset to boot. We have paired this build with the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1. We felt it fit the build nicely without breaking the bank. But there are other options above in our curated headsets list, just press the associated button in our PC build component table above for some of our other best priced components.

An Alternative Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

As an alternative to the Nvidia manufactured video card we have gone for in this PC, you could also consider the similarly powerful AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB. It has a 7% better performance difference compared to our selected GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix 6GB. Obviously we have chosen it as the cheapest price to performance offering in this range. It is currently priced at $397.81.
