Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 22nd Oct 2020

If you are wanting to buy a gaming computer to run 3 out of 10 then this PC build review is aimed at putting together the correct hardware components for the cheapest price today to do just that. We will therefore be aiming to run this game confidently each time on the best graphics possible, along with a 1080p monitor resolution. We visit this page every day to check on the prices and selected components we have added for this PC build. Naturally as new better hardware is found we will be adding and swapping to optimise this list with a view to giving us all a good jumping off point regarding expected build quality and pricing levels for our new 3 out of 10 build.

If we are building a PC for a specific game then various game characteristics can be considered to help us put together the right computer. When considering 3 out of 10 we can see that it is in the Adventure genre categories. This can influence some of the peripheral selections we make, as we will be wanting to make sure that the components we choose are complementary to the games needs. Something often overlooked is that we know the game itself would be developed during and shortly before 2020. Therefore we can speculate that it would have been built by the developers with hardware that has similar performance capability from that period as well. This title is currently not featuring on our list of most demanding games. With those thoughts helping us select specific hardware to match this title we will now select the best priced hardware today to meet these requirements from our curated gaming hardware lists.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p 3 out of 10 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 3 out of 10 at 1080p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $164.99, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for 3 out of 10. Over the past couple of weeks this card has seen a price drop of $14.01, which lends us confidence in picking it as a good purchase for this game. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Dec 2019, which had it priced at $159.

Our PC build has 8GB of onboard card memory to act as an image data store between the GPU and CPU. At this resolution the game will need at least 4GB of VRAM from our PC build. So with the selected Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB we have met that graphical requirement.

Selecting The Right 3 out of 10 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Ryzen 5 2400G processor based around the shared Socket AM4 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great 3 out of 10 experience, that helps achieve steady frames at this resolution. The chosen cpu has itself been selected because it represents a good fit with the game and the price we found it at when comparing today’s cpu market prices, finding it currently priced at $149.99. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 3rd Dec 2019 where we saw it for $118.98.

Today the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 competitively costs $53.99, which provides it a place in our build today. We have checked the mobo prices and found that on 25th Jun 2020, this motherboard was priced at a low of $53.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For 3 out of 10 At The Right Price

To make sure we meet the 3 out of 10 system requirements and to help us achieve the required FPS for Ultra at 1080p we have chosen the Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $32.99 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $53.99, and this was on 2nd Feb 2020.

An Alternative 3 out of 10 Graphics Card Option for 1080p
