Mafia: Trilogy 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 27th May 2020

Here we will create the best priced PC build to run Mafia: Trilogy, 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 Mafia: Trilogy really well, and for the best possible price today? We will therefore be aiming to run this game confidently each time on the best graphics possible, using 1080p monitor resolution. These hardware items found in our build will continue to have their prices checked and components will be swapped in and out as we feel better hardware for our build is released.

This title falls in the Action, Shooter 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 Mafia: Trilogy PC Build

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play Mafia: Trilogy at 1080p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The GeForce GTX 1660 Super PNY Single Fan 6GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $229.98 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. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 12th Apr 2020, which had it priced at $224.99. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $18.23 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

Selecting The Right Mafia: Trilogy 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The motherboard we are going for is the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151. Its the best priced LGA 1151 socket type motherboard on the market today and will give us the spot to choose a great pairing CPU for the GeForce GTX 1660 Super PNY Single Fan 6GB. Looking over the prices today we can see that the Core i5-9500 6-Core 3.0GHz processor is a great choice for this game and is currently costing $208. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 23rd May 2020 where we saw it for $208.

The awesome MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 is highly competitive, priced at $49.46, which provides it a position today in this gamer build. The cheapest motherboard price for the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 was recorded as $32.99, which was on 28th Dec 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Mafia: Trilogy At The Right Price

Our PC needs some well placed system memory to support our chosen CPU and GPU selections. As we are looking to achieve the 1080p ultra frame rates the Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz is currently priced at $32.99, which is among the better priced RAM today. Lowest RAM prices were recorded for this Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz when we saw it priced at $29.49, on 2nd Feb 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Mafia: Trilogy

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 88 FPS on High settings in Mafia: Trilogy at 1080p. There may be some lower frame rates in some parts of the game, but we have chosen the components to get some solid frame rates. Increasing the quality in the game to Ultra, will see us still getting an FPS of 63.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

With the larger screen resolutions always being of interest and something to consider, let’s take a look at how this build could perform. Running a 1440p Mafia: Trilogy we would expect 67 FPS at High and a drop to 48 when run at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

We should check some other games performance with our Mafia: Trilogy PC. Looking at some other popular games today, to see how the GeForce GTX 1660 Super PNY Single Fan 6GB and this setup will run on 1080p. Doom Eternal is expected to return 130 FPS when run on Ultra which increases to around 182 frames per second on High. Mafia 2: Definitive Edition would return 63 FPS on Ultra and then go up to 88 FPS at High settings. With Grand Theft Auto VI we expect 34 FPS running at Ultra settings and 47 frames on High settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Mafia: Trilogy

We have found a great quality and still well priced gaming mouse today with the Razer DeathAdder Elite. A game like Mafia: Trilogy that has Action, Shooter 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.

Mafia: Trilogy Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

With a game like this, (which falls in the Action, Shooter genre group) we wanted to make sure the audio solution we go with was up to the task. A game like Mafia: Trilogy has encouraged us to increase the quality of the headset we choose as it will return a much better experience overall. Looking through the hardware lists available and reviewing today’s prices we felt that the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1 headset is the right way to go, delivering some great audio, clear, reliable, while still being the best priced mid range headset. We have a selection list for headsets above if you would like to consider some other options we have seen at a good price today.

An Alternative Mafia: Trilogy Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are looking for a graphics card from AMD instead of the one we have selected in this build then you could try Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, which has a 7% better performance difference, so still similar capabilities. We have chosen it based on its price-performance figure as well, as it is currently priced at $429.99.
