Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 27th May 2020

Here we will create the best priced PC build to run Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered, 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 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered really well, and for the best possible price today? With the mission objective being a high gaming standard on the best graphics possible, along with a 1080p monitor resolution. These prices are are checked multiple times each day and we update the build if other hardware is better value for money, while still meeting our gaming hardware standards.

This title falls in the Shooter, Online genre category, which itself can influence the type of hardware we might consider for this build. Something we sometimes dont consider is that the game would be developed in 2020 and therefore on hardware from around that period of time. We can also assume that hardware from around that period would be part of the targeted hardware, in terms of performance, by the developers, as they provide graphical options for the hardware capabilities available. It is currently not on our list of most demanding games. Also it is one of the more popular titles, placed at 18 on our most popular games of today list. With this info in hand to help guide our hardware build choices we will now select today’s best priced components that meet these game characteristics.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered PC Build

Obviously one of the most important components for this build is the graphics card. We can take a look at the best price to performance hardware right now to help deliver a system that can run Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered at 1080p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X+ 8GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $189.99, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 24th Mar 2020 and it was priced at $123.97.

Selecting The Right Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a cpu is largely dependent on the right motherboard. The CPU we are going to choose has the Socket AM4 socket type. So we have found the best priced and well featured mobo in the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4. The Ryzen 5 2600E 6-Core 3.1GHz processor will then fit in and accompany our Radeon RX 580 MSI Gaming X+ 8GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $117.68.

Chosen for price point, socket type and feature list, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 has a cost today of $73.99. The cheapest motherboard price for the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 was recorded as $54.99, which was on 29th Nov 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered At The Right Price

One of the most important hardware parts of this computer is the system memory or RAM. To make sure our resolution target and frame rates are met we have chosen to put in Patriot Viper Elite 16GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz. This is currently priced at $62.99 and is well priced compared to the system memory market today. Lowest RAM prices were recorded for this Patriot Viper Elite 16GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz when we saw it priced at $61.99, on 7th Jan 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered

We reckon these hardware components in our PC build will get 83 FPS at high settings in game and you could improve the graphics up to Ultra and see a FPS of 60 at 1080p.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered at 1440p would be pulling in about 64 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 45 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1080p. Assassins Creed: Valhalla should get 26 when run on Ultra and this raises to 38 FPS on High. The popular Call of Duty Warzone gets a return of 57 FPS on Ultra and then up to 79 FPS when settings are dropped to High. Then there is Valorant, which is popular at the moment, which is returning 200+ FPS run at Ultra and 200+ frames on High.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered

We have chosen a great valued but higher performing mouse today with the Razer DeathAdder Elite gaming mouse. We felt a better performance mouse would better suit Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered because it falls into the Shooter, Online genre groupings and would benefit from the extra mouse quality the Razer DeathAdder Elite delivers.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered falls within the following game genre grouping, Shooter, Online, and as such places additional demands on the audio output you should be considering to enjoy this game. So the headset selection we have gone for is looking at a selection of better quality headsets. We are still choosing the best value headset available, it will not be the absolute cheapest you can find, because we have selected it from a better quality grouping, to help deliver the ideal build for this game. We have gone for the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1 for our initial build, which provides some great sounds at a reasonable price. You will see a button next to the headset name in the PC build list above, where you can see a few other headsets we have picked out, that are good value today.

An Alternative Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is a fan of team AMD, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested Nvidia card, the GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB. It is placed at 1% better performance difference and certainly capable of delivering up Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered frames on a par with our primary GPU selection. We have also selected it based on its price today, which finds it at $219.99.
