Outriders 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 22nd Jan 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 GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB today as a well placed option. The price for this card today is $239.99 which really helped mark it as a good fit.For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 and it was priced at $229.99. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $47.68 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

We were looking to get a video card with at least 6GB of VRAM available onboard it, which acts an image data buffer between our video card and CPU. The GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB has 6GB, which is suitable at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Outriders 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We have selected a MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard to allow us to then go on and add a great cpu for this Outriders build. With a LGA 1151 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Core i7-9700F 8-Core 3.0GHz, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $269.99 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 Core i7-9700F 8-Core 3.0GHz is $209.99 on 2nd Dec 2020.

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 Outriders PC build. A low recorded price for this motherboard was spotted on 28th Dec 2019 where it was $32.99.

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 63 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 88 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 48 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. The FPS would go up to 67 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 Cyberpunk 2077, Resident Evil 8 and Battlefield 6. Starting with Cyberpunk 2077 we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 48FPS on Ultra and 68FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Resident Evil 8 likely to achieve 63FPS on Ultra and 88FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Battlefield 6 at Ultra setting we can expect 58 FPS, raising to 72 FPS on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Outriders 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 $962.99.
