The Division 2 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 6th Jul 2020

If you are asking yourself, I want to buy the best priced PC that can definitely run and meet The Division 2 recommended requirements and more then today we will be looking to put together the ideal PC build for Tom Clancy's The Division. In doing this we keep in mind our need to deliver the game reliably with ultra settings selected, returning the visuals upon a 1080p monitor screen. We will keep checking the prices every day, so that our hardware selections on this page are at the best price point and we will swap in and out whenever something else appears better value today.

We will be looking across a range of things to help evaluate this best gamer build. We will be looking across the range of best value for money components based on today’s prices. Something that can influence our peripheral selection is that the game is found in the Shooter, 3rd Person, RPG genres, and this can sometimes sway some of the requirements of hardware we choose. Something else to consider is that The Division 2 would have been built on PC hardware from 2019 and shortly before this period. All interesting points for sure, but what we are really after is that we want to select components that best fit this game type but will also be today’s best value for money hardware of good enough quality to meet the game’s needs.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p The Division 2 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 The Division 2 at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. And we can see the card has dropped its price by $159.23 during the past two weeks. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB is $426.41 recorded at 22nd Dec 2019. With a price of $435.61 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

The game also needs this graphics solution to deliver at least 11 GB VRAM to act as a buffer between the PC build’s video card and the processor.

Selecting The Right The Division 2 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We are choosing a well rounded and best priced motherboard (the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4), that can provide us with the cpu Socket AM4 socket type. This is so we can select the Ryzen 7 3700X 8-Core 3.6GHz that has the best price to performance position today, at $272.99. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 3rd Jul 2020 where we saw it for $272.99.This CPU and GPU provide the required The Division 2 experience while maintaining the best price point at this 1080p resolution.

Today the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 competitively costs $54.99, which provides it a place in our build today. Our motherboard price records put this mobo’s price on 25th Jun 2020 at $53.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For The Division 2 At The Right Price

Researching the correct system memory for our build means we need it to meet The Division 2 requirements, with a view to running reliable FPS at Ultra settings leads us to Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 RAM 2666MHz. Today it is one of the best priced RAM options at $52.69 and will certainly support the CPU and GPU well. A price point for this RAM was down to $52.69 on 29th Jun 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on The Division 2

We reckon these hardware components in our PC build will get 123 FPS at high settings in game and you could improve the graphics up to Ultra and see a FPS of 88 at 1080p.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

Upping the screen size to 1440p for Tom Clancy's The Division using this build would return 121 frames per second on High settings. This would drop further to 87 when turning up to Ultra graphics.

How this build performs for other popular games

When buying a gaming PC for a specific game we still expect it to run other popular games. So as a benchmark lets see how well todays best priced PC build can deal with these 3 games at 1080p. Valorant should get 200+ FPS at Ultra settings and this goes up to 200+ frames at High settings. Grand Theft Auto VI can get an Ultra FPS of 52 FPS and increases to 72 FPS for High. Horizon: Zero Dawn is expected to be around 86 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 120 FPS on High settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For The Division 2

Selecting the right mouse for a game like The Division 2 has encouraged us to increase the quality of the mouse we would add to our build. As the game sits in the Shooter, 3rd Person, RPG genre list we felt that the Cooler Master MM710 mouse is today’s best priced but higher performing gaming mouse for this particular computer setup.

The Division 2 Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

And now on to the game’s audio output. In this build we are looking for higher performing headsets to better match the needs of this type of game. The Tritton ARK Elite 7.1 is today’s best priced gaming headset that meets our requirements, while still providing clear audio. If you wish to see some other curated headsets that are providing good value today then check our headset list button above for some other selections.

An Alternative The Division 2 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are wanting a graphics choice from the other team then our suggestion would be the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT ASRock Challenger D OC 8GB video card, currently priced at $379.99. This option has a performance of 5% worse when compared to the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB and completely capable of offering a good gpu alternative.
