Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Hitman 3

We have chosen a great valued but higher performing mouse today with the Cooler Master MM710 gaming mouse. We felt a better performance mouse would better suit Hitman 3 because it falls into the Shooter, Stealth genre groupings and would benefit from the extra mouse quality the Cooler Master MM710 delivers.

Hitman 3 Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

The Hitman 3 is a Shooter, Stealth 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 Hitman 3 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is a fan of team AMD, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested Nvidia card, the GeForce RTX 2070 Asus Dual Advanced 8GB. It is placed at 4% worse performance difference and certainly capable of delivering up Hitman 3 frames on a par with our primary GPU selection. We have also selected it based on its price today, which finds it at $379.99.
