Radio General 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 20th May 2020

Our objective here is to enable us to explore what PC we could buy that can play Radio General, where we carefully find the right hardware components that can run Radio General and meet its gaming needs while also heavily factoring in today’s best hardware component prices. Making our build requirement, when speccing this computer, to find the sweetest price point for our hardware list that can deliver the best FPS with ultra graphics settings, getting its visuals from a 1080p resolution monitor screen. These prices are are checked multiple times each day and we update the build if other hardware is better value for money, while still meeting our gaming hardware standards.

First off, to help us pull together the best hardware for this build, we have to understand a little bit about the type of game we are creating this computer for. Radio General is a title which sits in the Sim, Strategy, Real-time genre categories, which may influence our peripheral selection a bit, to help accommodate some of the particular requirements there. This game would have also been built on PC hardware during 2020 and before, which can suggest the sort of specced components a developer might have been using and hoping for their game to run on. Today we find it is not currently in our top most demanding games list and currently not figuring in our more popular games. While this extra info gives a good sense of what we want from our PC, nothing really replaces our value for money assessment based on live prices, when putting together this build.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Radio General PC Build

When putting this sort of PC together we want great value for money but a machine that can deliver solid FPS on Radio General at 1080p ultra graphics. We have selected the Radeon RX 560 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB today as a well placed option. The price for this card today is $179.9 which really helped mark it as a good fit.For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 560 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB is $137.35 on 29th Nov 2019. Watching this card over the past 2 weeks we have seen its price drop by $10.09, further supporting our selection in this hardware.

Selecting The Right Radio General 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a well priced motherboard, like the one we are putting in our build today really helps tie things together in terms of performance and opens up other hardware options that become available to us later in the selection. The GIGABYTE B450M mATX AM4 motherboard is at a great price point and lets us select our desired Socket AM4 cpu. As the Radeon RX 560 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB wants a suitable good pairing when looking to run Radio General well at this resolution. The Ryzen 5 2600 is currently priced at a competitive $124.99. Giving us a bit more of an insight we saw this processor being sold for a low price of $114.97, which was on 10th Feb 2020.

With a price tag today of $72.99, the GIGABYTE B450M mATX AM4 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the Radio General PC. A low price point for this motherboard would be $57.99, which we recorded it at on 29th Dec 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Radio General At The Right Price

To make sure we meet the Radio General system requirements and to help us achieve the required FPS for Ultra at 1080p we have chosen the Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $32.99 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely. Our RAM recorded prices put this Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz price at $29.49 on 2nd Feb 2020.

We reckon these hardware components in our PC build will get 85 FPS at high settings in game and you could improve the graphics up to Ultra and see a FPS of 61 at 1080p.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Radio General would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 46 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 1440p graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 65 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

To get a more general understanding of how our PC build for Radio General performs we can look in to how it copes with some of the more popular games of today at 1080p. To begin we see that Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to achieve 1FPS on Ultra and 1FPS on High graphics settings. Next up looking at Doom Eternal we would find 30FPS on Ultra raising to 41FPS at High. For our last comparison, Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord, we would likely achieve 35 FPS on Ultra and 49 FPS on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Radio General

We have found a great quality and still well priced gaming mouse today with the Razer DeathAdder Elite. A game like Radio General that has Sim, Strategy, Real-time genre, we felt it necessary to increase the quality of the mouse we would consider because the game has some additional needs that can benefit from this type of higher specced mouse.

An Alternative Radio General Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Or you could put the GeForce GTX 2050 graphics card into this computer, if you are after an alternative Nvidia PC build. It has a 4% worse performance variation to the Radeon RX 560 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB, so similar in capability and we have picked it as the best priced alternative manufacturer card, with a price of $149.99.
