Battlefield 6 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 26th Feb 2021

Here we will create the best priced PC build to run Battlefield 6, where it will meet the demands that a game like this will put on a custom PC. Our view is to answer the question, what PC should I buy that can play Battlefield 6 really well, and for the best possible price today? In doing this we keep in mind our need to deliver the game reliably with top tier graphics options selected, running 1080p as the native screen size. 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.

Battlefield 6 is currently not in our top demanding games list. It is also considered a Shooter, Action, 1st Person genre style game and happened to be built by the devs on hardware from 2021 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. The developers opted to build the game on the Frostbite platform. It is currently one of the more popular titles on the site and sat at 18 of our most popular games list. 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 Battlefield 6 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 Battlefield 6 at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB is $376.05 on 6th Dec 2019. Todays price is $397.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. Exploring the price trends for this card shows us it has increased its price by $9.91 over the past two weeks, so perhaps there is still deals that can be found on this card.

8GB of VRAM is needed by Battlefield 6. This memory acts as a super fast image storage buffer between GPU and CPU and our selected Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB comes with 8GB of VRAM. This should be a suitable amount for our PC at this gaming resolution.

Selecting The Right Battlefield 6 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Asus Prime B450M mATX AM4 motherboard is today’s best buy mobo, that also provides us with the Socket AM4 cpu socket type. Which is ideal for the best performance to price processor we have seen for our build, the Ryzen 5 2600X 6-Core 3.6GHz. This processor is currently priced at a competitive $197.99 and really works well with the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB. Bottom prices recorded for this CPU was when we saw it at $119.99, which we noticed it on 28th Nov 2019.

Today the Asus Prime B450M mATX AM4 competitively costs $77.99, which provides it a place in our build today. A low price point for this motherboard would be $49.99, which we recorded it at on 28th Nov 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Battlefield 6 At The Right Price

As one of the 3 main system components, when considering a PC built for Battlefield 6, the correct RAM selection is obviously important. We are looking for something that is well priced but also capable of meeting the games requirements. The Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 RAM 2666MHz is well priced at $52.99 and fits with the Ryzen 5 2600X 6-Core 3.6GHz and Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB selections to ensure solid FPS at 1080p ultra settings. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $49.99, and this was on 7th Aug 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Battlefield 6

This PC build has been optimized to deliver around 73 FPS at Ultra settings for Battlefield 6, while running on a 1080p screen size. While you might want to increase this to 92 FPS if you lower some of the graphics options inline with High graphics settings.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

If you were to increase your screen size with this PC setup to 1440p then we expect to see around a figure of 56 FPS on Ultra or 70 FPS on High.

How this build performs for other popular games

Ensuring our PC build for Battlefield 6 runs some of the more popular games of today competently at 1080p is also something worth considering. Looking at Valheim we see this pc build is likely to get 80FPS on Ultra and 112FPS on High graphics settings. In contrast we can expect Assassins Creed: Valhalla to return 34FPS on Ultra and 48FPS when lowered to High. Another popular game at the moment is World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, which is 56 FPS running at Ultra, and 78 on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Battlefield 6

With the increased demands this game’s genre, Shooter, Action, 1st Person, puts on our mouse selection we have chosen a higher performing mouse for this setup, while still ensuring it is the best value mouse today for this Battlefield 6 PC build.

Battlefield 6 Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

A game like this almost demands that you enjoy its accompanying audio. So we increased the range of quality headsets that we looked at for our PC Builds sound delivery solution. We have still chosen the best valued headset in this range, but it will deliver some clear gaming audio and is a comfortable headset to boot. We have paired this build with the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1. We felt it fit the build nicely without breaking the bank. But there are other options above in our curated headsets list, just press the associated button in our PC build component table above for some of our other best priced components.

An Alternative Battlefield 6 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Perhaps you are after a Nvidia graphics card rather than the one we have added to this build. If so we would suggest the similar performing GeForce RTX 2070 Asus Dual Advanced 8GB, which has a 4% worse performance variation, but is still a suitable video card choice for this game. We have also considered the best value for performance based on today’s prices, with it costing $379.99 at the moment.
