Far Cry 6 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 25th Oct 2020

Our objective here is to enable us to explore what PC we could buy that can play Far Cry 6, where we carefully find the right hardware components that can run Far Cry 6 and meet its gaming needs while also heavily factoring in today’s best hardware component prices. Its therefore our desire to consistently keep stable frame rates with ultra graphics settings, returning the visuals upon a 1080p monitor screen. We will keep checking the prices every day, so that our hardware selections on this page are at the best price point and we will swap in and out whenever something else appears better value today.

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. Far Cry 6 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 2021 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 19 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.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Far Cry 6 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 Far Cry 6 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 Far Cry 6. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $40 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 29th Feb 2020 where we saw it for $679.99.

Far Cry 6 needs 8GB of VRAM to suitably store adequate amounts of image data during transfer between video card and processor. Our GeForce RTX 2080 Super Zotac Twin Fan 8GB graphics card has 8GB which will be suitable for this resolution of gaming.

Selecting The Right Far Cry 6 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We are choosing a well rounded and best priced motherboard (the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4), that can provide us with the cpu Socket AM4 socket type. This is so we can select the Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core 3.6GHz that has the best price to performance position today, at $199.99. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 7th Jul 2020 where we saw it for $56.98.This CPU and GPU provide the required Far Cry 6 experience while maintaining the best price point at this 1080p resolution.

Looking at motherboard prices and features the competitively priced $53.99 GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 certainly takes a well-deserved place in our build. Bottom motherboard prices recorded for this mobo was when we saw it at $53.99, on 25th Jun 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Far Cry 6 At The Right Price

Researching the correct system memory for our build means we need it to meet Far Cry 6 requirements, with a view to running reliable FPS at Ultra settings leads us to Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz. Today it is one of the best priced RAM options at $50.99 and will certainly support the CPU and GPU well. To provide a RAM pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz is $49.99 on 9th Jan 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Far Cry 6

With our key performance components in place we are expecting to see this setup running Far Cry 6 at around 58 average frames per second, on 1080p screen resolution. This should be achieved on ultra graphics settings. If you turn a few graphics options down we expect around 81 FPS at high graphics.

If you were to increase your screen size with this PC setup to 1440p then we expect to see around a figure of 44 FPS on Ultra or 62 FPS on High.

How this build performs for other popular games

While we have put a great PC build together for Far Cry 6 it’s important to understand how it handles some of the more popular games of today at 1080p. With this PC build we can expect that the popular game Cyberpunk 2077 will get 92FPS on Ultra settings raising to 129FPS on High. On the other hand we see that Assassins Creed: Valhalla returns 63FPS on Ultra and 92FPS when lowered to High. Lastly FIFA 21 may see 200+ FPS running at Ultra, and 200+ on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Far Cry 6

As Far Cry 6 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.

Far Cry 6 Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

Now we take a look at the headsets available for our build, and with a game that comes in under this genre we want to increase the quality of the headset we pick to help us better enjoy the games audible immersion. Sifting through the prices and headsets available today brings us on to the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1 gaming headset. A comfortable and well balanced set of cones that are still available for a reasonable price. There are other headset options that we have seen and would recommend, across a variety of price points, so take a look at our list above in the PC build.
