Chernobylite 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 14th Oct 2020

If you are looking to build and buy your next PC to run Chernobylite then this list of custom curated components will give you a great jumping off point for your next gaming PC selection. Its therefore our desire to consistently keep stable frame rates with ultra settings selected, getting its visuals from a 1080p resolution monitor screen. As new gaming components are released for PC we will continue to review prices here each day and consider swapping in and out better components.

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. Chernobylite is a title which sits in the Shooter, RPG 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 2019 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 Chernobylite PC Build

Choosing the graphics card needs to be done correctly and as we are putting together a gamer PC build for Chernobylite at 1080p ultra graphics we want something with the best price today while returning the best performance for that price. This has led us to the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, which has a good price at the moment, as its currently priced at $239.99. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019, which had it priced at $229.99. And with that in mind the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB is a great match for Chernobylite at 1080p ultra. It will certainly help us get good FPS. we will highlight those FPS in more detail later in this article. 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.

The game also needs this graphics solution to deliver at least 4 GB VRAM to act as a buffer between the PC build’s video card and the processor.

Selecting The Right Chernobylite 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We have selected a GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard to allow us to then go on and add a great cpu for this Chernobylite build. With a Socket AM4 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Ryzen 5 2600, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $140.09 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. Giving us a bit more of an insight we saw this processor being sold for a low price of $59.9, which was on 7th Jul 2020.

With the feature rich GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 priced competitively at $53.99 it is certainly in todays Chernobylite build for a good reason. Our motherboard price records put this mobo’s price on 25th Jun 2020 at $53.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Chernobylite At The Right Price

As one of the 3 main system components, when considering a PC built for Chernobylite, the correct RAM selection is obviously important.

To help provide a sense of cost for this RAM, the Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz was priced at $49.99 on 9th Jan 2020.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Chernobylite

In today’s build we have chosen a higher performing mouse to better match the needs of this type of game. The Cooler Master MM710 is the best priced gaming mouse that meets our requirements.

Chernobylite Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

The Chernobylite is a Shooter, RPG genre game and so keeping that in mind we have chosen to improve the quality of headset that we are looking at adding to this build. In light of that the clear sounds quality and improved experience offered by the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1 got our attention and today it is the best priced in its category as well. There are other options, some cheaper, that you can see by clicking our Headset selection list button above, in the build table.

An Alternative Chernobylite Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a Nvidia card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB instead, which comes with a 7% better performance adjustment when compared to GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $574.99 at the moment.
