Weird West 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 19th Jan 2021

I want to buy a best priced gaming PC that can run Weird West on Ultra. This is what we will be looking to explore and maintain in our review page here today. So we are finding the best priced peripherals and hardware for a new PC build that can run Weird West And so our expectations are that this game will confidently run with top tier graphics options selected, while running on 1080p screen res. The hardware selection should give us all a good jumping off point when considering what might prove a good build and price for a PC to run Weird West. We will update prices here as they change and switch out components as new, better hardware is released.

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. Weird West is a title which sits in the Action, Adventure, RPG 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 2021 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 Weird West PC Build

Obviously one of the most important components for this build is the graphics card. We can take a look at the best price to performance hardware right now to help deliver a system that can run Weird West at 1080p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the Radeon RX 550X 4GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $99.88, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for Weird West. Exploring the price trends for this card shows us it has increased its price by $99.88 over the past two weeks, so perhaps there is still deals that can be found on this card.

At $49.46 the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard muscles its feature rich chipboard into today’s Weird West PC build. A low price point for this motherboard would be $32.99, which we recorded it at on 28th Dec 2019.

System Memory is a significant part of any gaming computer. The build today finds the Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz to be the best price to performance RAM solution for our Weird West PC.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Weird West

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 88 FPS on High settings in Weird West 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.

An Alternative Weird West Graphics Card Option for 1080p

The Nvidia option for this build would be the 118% better performance difference GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB graphics card and certainly a viable choice for Weird West. We considered this alternative graphics solution because it was also the best price point in this performance range. It is priced at $239.99 today.
