Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 29th Oct 2020

If you are asking yourself, what hardware components should I buy for my next PC so it can run Avowed then that is exactly what we will be doing in this review. Our challenge is in choosing the right priced PC items to get together an optimum build, which can meet the needs of Avowed. In doing this we keep in mind our need to deliver the game reliably with max graphics running, returning the visuals upon a 1080p 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.

Getting our best PC build together today we consider some of the characteristics of this game, which will help us better select the right hardware components for Avowed. First and foremost we will be looking at value for money, hunting through our curated list of gaming hardware and then cherry picking the best priced items available today. As this game falls into the RPG, Action genre category, this can certainly influence some of the hardware selection below, especially some of the peripherals we select out, to make sure they might the games key specialities. Something else we can consider is that Avowed would have been built on PC hardware from around 2022 or leading up to that period, by the developers. So it is usually fairly safe to consider hardware from that period as suitable.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Avowed PC Build

Our key objective when putting together our next gaming PC is always going to be finding a great price point for the most performance we can. Today’s build we start by looking for the right graphics card, at the right price, that can run Avowed at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 where we saw it for $229.99. Todays price is $239.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. Watching this card over the past 2 weeks we have seen its price drop by $47.68, further supporting our selection in this hardware.

Selecting The Right Avowed 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The backbone of a pc build is the motherboard. Todays best price mobo, that gives us the LGA 1151 socket type is the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151. From here we can then put in to this game’s bespoke PC build the Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz processor, which works very well in achieving the desired performance levels at a good price point. Todays price for this computer processor is $169.41. Bottom prices recorded for this CPU was when we saw it at $164.05, which we noticed it on 19th Oct 2020.

Looking at motherboard prices and features the competitively priced $49.46 MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 certainly takes a well-deserved place in our build. Our motherboard price records put this mobo’s price on 28th Dec 2019 at $32.99.

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

One of the most important hardware parts of this computer is the system memory or RAM. To make sure our resolution target and frame rates are met we have chosen to put in Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. This is currently priced at $32.99 and is well priced compared to the system memory market today. Lowest RAM prices were recorded for this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz when we saw it priced at $30.35, on 29th Nov 2019.

Now on to the frame rates for our Avowed running on GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB at 1080p. We should see an average of 88 FPS on High settings or you could push up the quality to Ultra, which would get us 63 FPS.

An Alternative Avowed 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 $579.99.
