Doom Eternal 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 21st Oct 2020

If you are asking yourself, I want to buy the best priced PC that can definitely run and meet Doom Eternal recommended requirements and more then today we will be looking to put together the ideal PC build for Doom Eternal. Its therefore our desire to consistently keep stable frame rates with ultra graphics settings, pushing out visuals on 1080p screen size. Prices found here today are checked daily to make sure that the components we aare putting into our Doom Eternal represent good value for money.

First off, to help us pull together the best hardware for this build, we have to understand a little bit about the type of game we are creating this computer for. Doom Eternal is a title which sits in the Shooter, Action genre categories, which may influence our peripheral selection a bit, to help accommodate some of the particular requirements there. This game would have also been built on PC hardware during 2020 and before, which can suggest the sort of specced components a developer might have been using and hoping for their game to run on. Today we find it is not currently in our top most demanding games list and currently not figuring in our more popular games. While this extra info gives a good sense of what we want from our PC, nothing really replaces our value for money assessment based on live prices, when putting together this build.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Doom Eternal 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 Doom Eternal at 1080p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the GeForce RTX 2080 Super Zotac Twin Fan 8GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $689.99, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for Doom Eternal. Over the past couple of weeks this card has seen a price drop of $40, which lends us confidence in picking it as a good purchase for this game. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce RTX 2080 Super Zotac Twin Fan 8GB is $679.99 recorded at 29th Feb 2020.

Our graphics card will need 11GB of VRAM built into it to act as a suitable buffer between our video card and chosen CPU. This graphics card has 8GB which will be plenty for this game at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Doom Eternal 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The backbone of a pc build is the motherboard. Todays best price mobo, that gives us the Socket AM4 socket type is the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4. From here we can then put in to this game’s bespoke PC build the Ryzen 9 3900X 12-Core 3.8GHz processor, which works very well in achieving the desired performance levels at a good price point. Todays price for this computer processor is $429.99. A low end price for this CPU would be $139, which we saw it priced at on 7th Jul 2020.

Having the competitive price tag of $54.99, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard’s strong price point today helps it stay in this Doom Eternal PC build. To help give some depth to the price points for this motherboard, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 was priced at $53.99 on 25th Jun 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Doom Eternal At The Right Price

To make sure we meet the Doom Eternal 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 2400MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $50.99 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely. A price point for this RAM was down to $49.99 on 9th Jan 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Doom Eternal

We reckon these hardware components in our PC build will get 200+ FPS at high settings in game and you could improve the graphics up to Ultra and see a FPS of 200+ at 1080p.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Doom Eternal

As Doom Eternal falls into the Shooter, Action genre group, we have chosen to increase the quality of the mouse we are adding to our PC to help better meet the needs of the game. We have opted for the Cooler Master MM710, where this particular mouse is currently today’s best price but a more high performing gamer mouse than some of the other mice we normally choose in our builds.

Doom Eternal Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

With a game like this, when considering audio options its best to pay a little more and enjoy the sort of sounds a game like this will deliver. The higher quality gaming headset we had in mind is the well priced Tritton ARK Elite 7.1, because it will cater to the Shooter, Action genre type that Doom Eternal sits in. While the best priced headset we can see in this category today, there are a few other differently priced options you can take a look at in our curated gaming headset list above.
