Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Wolfenstein: Youngblood 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 Wolfenstein: Youngblood at 1080p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $239.99, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for Wolfenstein: Youngblood. Looking a little deeper at this cards pricing history shows this card has seen a drop in its price by $47.68 over the last two weeks. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 and it was priced at $229.99.

6GB of VRAM is needed by Wolfenstein: Youngblood. This memory acts as a super fast image storage buffer between GPU and CPU and our selected GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB comes with 6GB of VRAM. This should be a suitable amount for our PC at this gaming resolution.

Selecting The Right Wolfenstein: Youngblood 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a well priced motherboard, like the one we are putting in our build today really helps tie things together in terms of performance and opens up other hardware options that become available to us later in the selection. The GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard is at a great price point and lets us select our desired Socket AM4 cpu. As the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB wants a suitable good pairing when looking to run Wolfenstein: Youngblood well at this resolution. The Ryzen 5 2600 is currently priced at a competitive $186. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 7th Jul 2020 where we saw it for $59.9.

With a price tag today of $59.99, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the Wolfenstein: Youngblood PC. To provide a motherboard pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 is $53.99 on 25th Jun 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Wolfenstein: Youngblood 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 $49.99 and is well priced compared to the system memory market today. To provide a bit of system memory pricing insight, we spotted this Patriot Viper Elite 16GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz being sold for a low price of $49.99 on 30th Nov 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Wolfenstein: Youngblood

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 192 FPS on High settings in Wolfenstein: Youngblood at 1080p. There may be some lower frame rates in some parts of the game, but we have chosen the components to get some solid frame rates. Increasing the quality in the game to Ultra, will see us still getting an FPS of 137.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

With the larger screen resolutions always being of interest and something to consider, let’s take a look at how this build could perform. Running a 1440p Wolfenstein: Youngblood we would expect 129 FPS at High and a drop to 92 when run at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Wolfenstein: Youngblood PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Microsoft Flight Simulator and FIFA 21. Starting with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 71FPS on Ultra and 99FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Microsoft Flight Simulator likely to achieve 19FPS on Ultra and 26FPS when reduced to High. Finally with FIFA 21 at Ultra setting we can expect 174 FPS, raising to 200+ FPS on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Wolfenstein: Youngblood

We opted for this higher quality gaming mouse, Cooler Master MM710, because it would cater to the Shooter, Action genre type that Wolfenstein: Youngblood sits in. This is still the best priced mouse we had in our lists today, just a better quality peripheral than we might normally consider.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

Wolfenstein: Youngblood falls within the following game genre grouping, Shooter, Action, 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 Logitech G635 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 Wolfenstein: Youngblood Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are looking for a graphics card from AMD instead of the one we have selected in this build then you could try Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, which has a 7% 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 $649.99.
