Torque Drift 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 26th Jun 2020

This is a hand selected custom PC component build that will answer your question of, what PC should I buy next to play Torque Drift on. One that has the right gaming hardware to enjoy a great Torque Drift experience. We are going to choose these parts with the aim of keeping a high FPS rate at the highest graphics settings, 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.

This title falls in the Racing 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 sat on our most demanding games list at 13, making it one of our more demanding titles on the site right now. 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 Torque Drift PC Build

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play Torque Drift at 1080p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $435.61 that we found it marked at today. It will certainly help return suitable FPS, which we will go into a bit later in the article, at ultra 1080p. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB is $426.41 recorded at 22nd Dec 2019. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $159.23 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

Selecting The Right Torque Drift 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 Torque Drift build. With a Socket AM4 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Ryzen 7 3700X 8-Core 3.6GHz, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $279.3 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 7th Jul 2020 where we saw it for $89.

The awesome GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 is highly competitive, priced at $54.99, which provides it a position today in this gamer build. To offer motherboard pricing insight we spotted this being sold for a low price of $53.99, which was recorded at 25th Jun 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Torque Drift At The Right Price

System Memory is a significant part of any gaming computer. The build today finds the OLOy 16GB (1x16GB) DDR4 2400MHz to be the best price to performance RAM solution for our Torque Drift PC. At last reckoning we priced it up at $50.99, which is a cheap price for this amount of RAM. There are of course other options and configurations of system memory you might like to consider in your build. The cheapest system memory price for OLOy 16GB (1x16GB) DDR4 2400MHz was recorded as $47.89, and this was on 7th Jan 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Torque Drift

Our PC build can run Torque Drift at High graphics settings comfortably, returning a 1080p FPS of 83 and we would expect an average of 60 FPS on Ultra with the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB, Ryzen 7 3700X 8-Core 3.6GHz combo we have put into this computer.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running Torque Drift at 1440p would be pulling in about 64 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 45 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

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. Grand Theft Auto VI should get 52 FPS at Ultra settings and this goes up to 72 frames at High settings. Assassins Creed: Valhalla can get an Ultra FPS of 45 FPS and increases to 66 FPS for High. Death Stranding is expected to be around 86 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 120 FPS on High settings.

An Alternative Torque Drift Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Or you could put the Radeon RX 5700 XT ASRock Challenger D OC 8GB graphics card into this computer, if you are after an alternative AMD PC build. It has a 5% worse performance variation to the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB, so similar in capability and we have picked it as the best priced alternative manufacturer card, with a price of $379.99.
