Resident Evil Resistance 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 27th Jun 2020

If you are wanting to buy a gaming computer to run Project Resistance then this PC build review is aimed at putting together the correct hardware components for the cheapest price today to do just that. And so our expectations are that this game will confidently run on ultra graphics settings, viewed through a 1080p monitor resolution. Todays prices will be checked every few hours to make sure only the best hardware at the best prices will be displayed for this build.

Resident Evil Resistance is currently not in our top demanding games list. It is also considered a Action genre style game and happened to be built by the devs on hardware from 2019 and in the period leading up to this. This may be worth considering when understanding the performance requirements a PC for this title might be expected to have. It is currently not really figuring in our more popular games lists. All this background info will help us better choose the components today for this game PC build, but our main factor will of course be price to performance for each component and peripheral we choose below.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Resident Evil Resistance PC Build

Our key objective when putting together our next gaming PC is always going to be finding a great price point for the most performance we can. Today’s build we start by looking for the right graphics card, at the right price, that can run Project Resistance at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019 which had it priced at $229.99. Todays price is $239.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. 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.

Our PC build has 6GB of onboard card memory to act as an image data store between the GPU and CPU. At this resolution the game will need at least 3GB of VRAM from our PC build. So with the selected GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB we have met that graphical requirement.

Selecting The Right Resident Evil Resistance 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 Resident Evil Resistance 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 $139.99 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 10th Feb 2020 where we saw it for $114.97.

With the feature rich GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 priced competitively at $90.01 it is certainly in todays Resident Evil Resistance build for a good reason. A low price point for this motherboard would be $53.99, which we recorded it at on 25th Jun 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Resident Evil Resistance At The Right Price

One of the more significant hardware components in this Resident Evil Resistance build is the RAM. We are choosing some complementary and well priced Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz. It is currently priced at $32.99. 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. We looked through our records and saw that the RAM prices on 2nd Feb 2020, represented a low price point $29.49. Which gives us an indication of how things sit today with the RAM price

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Resident Evil Resistance

With our key performance components in place we are expecting to see this setup running Resident Evil Resistance at around 69 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 96 FPS at high graphics.

Upping the screen size to 1440p for Project Resistance using this build would return 73 frames per second on High settings. This would drop further to 52 when turning up to Ultra graphics.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Resident Evil Resistance PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Death Stranding, Resident Evil 3 Remake and Valorant. Starting with Death Stranding we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 63FPS on Ultra and 88FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Resident Evil 3 Remake likely to achieve 69FPS on Ultra and 96FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Valorant at Ultra setting we can expect 200+ FPS, raising to 200+ FPS on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Resident Evil Resistance Graphics Card Option for 1080p

The AMD option for this build would be the 7% better performance difference Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB graphics card and certainly a viable choice for Resident Evil Resistance. We considered this alternative graphics solution because it was also the best price point in this performance range. It is priced at $449.99 today.
