New World 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 23rd Jul 2021

If you are asking yourself, what hardware components should I buy for my next PC so it can run New World then that is exactly what we will be doing in this review. Our challenge is in choosing the right priced PC items to get together an optimum build, which can meet the needs of New World. Of course our sights are set on returning a good level expereince with top tier graphics options selected, 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 New World. We will update prices here as they change and switch out components as new, better hardware 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 Sandbox, Online 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 2021 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 New World 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 New World at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. And we can see the card has dropped its price by $47.68 during the past two weeks. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB is $229.99 on 28th Nov 2019. With a price of $239.99 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

Selecting The Right New World 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 i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz processor, which works very well in achieving the desired performance levels at a good price point. Todays price for this computer processor is $155.93. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 27th May 2020 where we saw it for $59.

Looking at motherboard prices and features the competitively priced $49.46 MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 certainly takes a well-deserved place in our build. This motherboard was priced at $32.99, which we saw on 28th Dec 2019. While monitoring prices this is the lowest we have seen it at.

How To Choose The Best RAM For New World At The Right Price

To make sure we meet the New World system requirements and to help us achieve the required FPS for Ultra at 1080p we have chosen the Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 RAM 2666MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $52.99 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely. A price point for this RAM was down to $50 on 7th Aug 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on New World

Now on to the frame rates for our New World running on GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB at 1080p. We should see an average of 99 FPS on High settings or you could push up the quality to Ultra, which would get us 71 FPS.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

If we are looking for some larger screen resolutions with this computer, then New World would return 54 FPS on 1440p at Ultra graphics setting. This FPS would improve to 76 FPS average at High settings.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new New World PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1080p. Dying Light 2 should get 44 when run on Ultra and this raises to 62 FPS on High. The popular Battlefield 2042 gets a return of 58 FPS on Ultra and then up to 72 FPS when settings are dropped to High. Then there is Far Cry 6, which is popular at the moment, which is returning 37 FPS run at Ultra and 52 frames on High.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For New World

The Sandbox, Online genre means that we would be looking for our build’s mouse selection to be of higher quality than normal, so we have chosen the Cooler Master MM710 as the best mouse option based on today’s prices versus gamer quality.

New World Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

This title’s genre, Sandbox, Online, made us want to find a headset that can really capitalise on the higher audio demands the game can deliver. We therefore selected the headset from a better group of peripherals, while still looking for the best value headset. We have chosen the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1 for its clear audio and great price today. If you wish to find cheaper or better quality headsphones then use our selection list above to see some other headsets that we have found that represent good value gaming audio today.

An Alternative New World Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Or you could put the Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB graphics card into this computer, if you are after an alternative AMD PC build. It has a 7% better performance variation to the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, so similar in capability and we have picked it as the best priced alternative manufacturer card, with a price of $899.98.
