Outriders 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 14th May 2021

Our objective here is to enable us to explore what PC we could buy that can play Outriders, where we carefully find the right hardware components that can run Outriders and meet its gaming needs while also heavily factoring in today’s best hardware component prices. And so our expectations are that this game will confidently run with ultra settings selected, along with a 1080p monitor resolution. We visit this page every day to check on the prices and selected components we have added for this PC build. Naturally as new better hardware is found we will be adding and swapping to optimise this list with a view to giving us all a good jumping off point regarding expected build quality and pricing levels for our new Outriders build.

We will be looking across a range of things to help evaluate this best gamer build. We will be looking across the range of best value for money components based on today’s prices. Something that can influence our peripheral selection is that the game is found in the Adventure, Action genres, and this can sometimes sway some of the requirements of hardware we choose. Something else to consider is that Outriders would have been built on PC hardware from 2021 and shortly before this period. All interesting points for sure, but what we are really after is that we want to select components that best fit this game type but will also be today’s best value for money hardware of good enough quality to meet the game’s needs.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Outriders PC Build

When putting this sort of PC together we want great value for money but a machine that can deliver solid FPS on Outriders at 1080p ultra graphics. We have selected the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB today as a well placed option. The price for this card today is $397.99 which really helped mark it as a good fit.For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 6th Dec 2019 and it was priced at $376.05. Over the last few weeks we have noticed it increase its price by $9.91, proving that additional savings can be found you will just need to shop around.

We were looking to get a video card with at least 8GB of VRAM available onboard it, which acts an image data buffer between our video card and CPU. The Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB has 8GB, which is suitable at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Outriders 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We have selected a Asus Prime B450M mATX AM4 motherboard to allow us to then go on and add a great cpu for this Outriders build. With a Socket AM4 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core 3.6GHz, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $199.99 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. A good point of reference is that the bottom recorded price we have for the Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core 3.6GHz is $56.98 on 7th Jul 2020.

Having the competitive price tag of $67.99, the Asus Prime B450M mATX AM4 motherboard’s strong price point today helps it stay in this Outriders PC build. A low recorded price for this motherboard was spotted on 28th Nov 2019 where it was $49.99.

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

One of the more significant hardware components in this Outriders build is the RAM. We are choosing some complementary and well priced Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 RAM 2666MHz. It is currently priced at $52.99. 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. Lowest RAM prices were recorded for this Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 RAM 2666MHz when we saw it priced at $50, on 7th Aug 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Outriders

This computer setup should be looking at getting 61 FPS on Ultra graphics at the 1080p screen size in Outriders. We expect with a few tweaks to the settings this gaming PC will also get around 85 FPS at High settings, which will give you some frame rate performance to play around with.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

Increasing the screen resolution for Outriders would mean this setup would be getting FPS that are 47 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. The FPS would go up to 65 FPS if the graphics settings at this resolution were lowered to High.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Outriders PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Resident Evil 8, Mass Effect: Legendary Edition and Days Gone. Starting with Resident Evil 8 we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 55FPS on Ultra and 76FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Mass Effect: Legendary Edition likely to achieve 61FPS on Ultra and 85FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Days Gone at Ultra setting we can expect 86 FPS, raising to 120 FPS on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Outriders Graphics Card Option for 1080p

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 RTX 2070 Asus Dual Advanced 8GB, which has a 4% worse performance difference, so still similar capabilities. We have chosen it based on its price-performance figure as well, as it is currently priced at $379.99.
