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 7 in our list of 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.

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 Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $164.99, 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 $14.01, which lends us confidence in picking it as a good purchase for this game. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB is $159 recorded at 28th Dec 2019.
Our graphics card will need 4GB 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.
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 $228.79. A low end price for this CPU would be $199.99, which we saw it priced at on 28th Nov 2019.
Having the competitive price tag of $49.46, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 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 MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 was priced at $32.99 on 28th Dec 2019.
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 OLOy 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3000MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $29.99 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely. A price point for this RAM was down to $27.89 on 7th Jan 2020.
We reckon these hardware components in our PC build will get 89 FPS at high settings in game and you could improve the graphics up to Ultra and see a FPS of 64 at 1080p.
Increasing the screen resolution for Doom Eternal would mean this setup would be getting FPS that are 48 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. The FPS would go up to 68 FPS if the graphics settings at this resolution were lowered to High.
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. Cyberpunk 2077 should get 34 FPS at Ultra settings and this goes up to 48 frames at High settings. Microsoft Flight Simulator can get an Ultra FPS of 36 FPS and increases to 50 FPS for High. Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order is expected to be around 36 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 50 FPS on High settings.
If you are looking for a graphics card from Nvidia instead of the one we have selected in this build then you could try GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix OC 6GB, which has a 5% better performance difference, so still similar capabilities. We have chosen it based on its price-performance figure as well, as it is currently priced at $209.99.
