Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 18th Jan 2021

If you are wanting to buy a gaming computer to run Lego DC Super-Villains then this PC build review is aimed at putting together the correct hardware components for the cheapest price today to do just that. Of course our sights are set on returning a good level expereince with ultra settings selected, while running on 1080p screen res. 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.

Today we find Lego DC Super-Villains is not in our top demanding games list and currently not figuring in our more popular games lists of today. It also falls in under the Action, Casual, Platformer game genre types, which itself can influence some of our choices of hardware today, to make sure we better meet the hardware needs of the game. This sort of information will help us build a fuller picture and better understand what to select when putting our best build PC together for the game. Interestingly, it might be worth thinking about the performance of the hardware that the game was originally built on, which would have been from 2018 and shortly before. So the devs themselves may have been aiming for hardware with performance capability from this particular period.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Lego DC Super-Villains 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 Lego DC Super-Villains at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the Radeon RX 560 2GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. As a point of interest this graphics card has increased its price by $99.99 over the past two weeks. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 where we saw it for $99.99. With a price of $99.99 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

We also want the graphics card to have at least 2GB VRAM onboard. The video card in this build has 2 which will act as a good data buffer between the processor and the graphics hardware.

Selecting The Right Lego DC Super-Villains 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 MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard is at a great price point and lets us select our desired LGA 1151 cpu. As the Radeon RX 560 2GB wants a suitable good pairing when looking to run Lego DC Super-Villains well at this resolution. The Core i3-8100 4-Core 3.6GHz is currently priced at a competitive $182.24. Giving us a bit more of an insight we saw this processor being sold for a low price of $109.99, which was on 13th Dec 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 Lego DC Super-Villains PC build. Bottom motherboard prices recorded for this mobo was when we saw it at $32.99, on 28th Dec 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Lego DC Super-Villains At The Right Price

One of the more significant hardware components in this Lego DC Super-Villains build is the RAM. We are choosing some complementary and well priced Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz. It is currently priced at $32.99. While among the best priced system memory for this build it will still provide us with the ability to reach our desired FPS for the 1080p ultra setting, that we have been focusing on with this PC. A price point for this RAM was down to $29.49 on 2nd Feb 2020.
