Cloudpunk 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 27th Nov 2020

This is a hand selected custom PC component build that will answer your question of, what PC should I buy next to play Cloudpunk on. One that has the right gaming hardware to enjoy a great Cloudpunk experience. Our mission is a top end gaming solution for this game with max graphics running, returning the visuals upon a 1080p monitor screen. Every day we run through our carefully chosen gaming hardware and cherry pick today’s lowest priced hardware components to help us achieve this optimum PC build list.

This title falls in the Adventure, RPG genre category, which itself can influence the type of hardware we might consider for this build. Something we sometimes dont consider is that the game would be developed in 2020 and therefore on hardware from around that period of time. We can also assume that hardware from around that period would be part of the targeted hardware, in terms of performance, by the developers, as they provide graphical options for the hardware capabilities available. It is currently not on our list of most demanding games. Also it is falling outside of our most popular games list at the moment. With this info in hand to help guide our hardware build choices we will now select today’s best priced components that meet these game characteristics.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Cloudpunk PC Build

When selecting the right graphics card today we are specifically hunting for great price-to-performance gpus that can run Cloudpunk in ultra 1080p. Right now the best graphics card purchase for this game is the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, which will work really well at this screen resolution. It’s currently priced at $239.99, which puts it as one of the cheapest but best performers for this type of game. 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. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB is $229.99 recorded at 28th Nov 2019.

Selecting The Right Cloudpunk 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To accompany the graphics option we have put a compatible motherboard into the build. The MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard in turn enables us to add the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz processor that has the LGA 1151 socket. This CPU is a great fit for Cloudpunk and balances nicely with the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, to help reach the right frame rates at this resolution. We have of course chosen this CPU today because of its price to performance credentials where it is currently priced at $119.99. A low end price for this CPU would be $59, which we saw it priced at on 27th May 2020.

With a price tag today of $49.46, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the Cloudpunk PC. To help give some depth to the price points for this motherboard, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 was priced at $32.99 on 28th Dec 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Cloudpunk At The Right Price

One of the more significant hardware components in this Cloudpunk build is the RAM. We are choosing some complementary and well priced Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz. 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. A low price point for this Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz was spotted on 30th Oct 2020, where we saw it at $47.99.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Cloudpunk

So now that our core components are all in place we would expect to see around 63 FPS in Cloudpunk at 1080p resolution, on Ultra settings. Make some adjustments to the graphics options and you could boost this up to 88 FPS for High graphics settings.

If we are looking for some larger screen resolutions with this computer, then Cloudpunk would return 48 FPS on 1440p at Ultra graphics setting. This FPS would improve to 67 FPS average at High settings.

How this build performs for other popular games

When buying a gaming PC for a specific game we still expect it to run other popular games. So as a benchmark lets see how well todays best priced PC build can deal with these 3 games at 1080p. FIFA 21 should get 174 FPS at Ultra settings and this goes up to 200+ frames at High settings. Microsoft Flight Simulator can get an Ultra FPS of 19 FPS and increases to 26 FPS for High. Watch Dogs Legion is expected to be around 46 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 64 FPS on High settings.

An Alternative Cloudpunk Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Or you could put the Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB graphics card into this computer, if you are after an alternative AMD PC build. It has a 7% better performance variation to the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, so similar in capability and we have picked it as the best priced alternative manufacturer card, with a price of $649.99.
