Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 9th Oct 2020

Here we will create the best priced PC build to run The Walking Dead Onslaught, 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 The Walking Dead Onslaught really well, and for the best possible price today? With the PC build brief being to maintain a stable and reliable FPS on ultra graphics settings, along with a 1080p monitor resolution. Every day we run through our carefully chosen gaming hardware and cherry pick today’s lowest priced hardware components to help us achieve this optimum PC build list.

Before getting this build together we need to consider a few background characteristics about the game we are building this PC for. The Walking Dead Onslaught falls into the Action, Shooter genre category groupings and would have been finished being developed during 2020 on hardware released around that period of time which may be a factor when we choose the type of hardware as it would need to be comparable in performance to hardware available from around this time. The game is not in our top demanding games lists. While these facts help us put together the best PC for the game we will still be selecting components based on the latest prices for the chosen peripherals and hardware for our build. Choosing today’s best priced items to give us an ideal PC build today for the game.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p The Walking Dead Onslaught PC Build

We want a punchy GPU for this build and the Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB is currently priced at a competitive $308.14. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB is $297.52 recorded at 19th Dec 2019.. This PC graphics hardware selection is a nice price to performance option when looking to run The Walking Dead Onslaught at 1080p ultra graphics. We expect to see some good FPS from this card at these specs. Its price over the past couple of weeks has increased a bit by $10.62, which makes us think additional savings can be made here if you shop around.

Our graphics card will need 8GB of VRAM built into it to act as a suitable buffer between our video card and chosen CPU. This graphics card has 8GB which will be plenty for this game at this resolution.

Selecting The Right The Walking Dead Onslaught 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To accompany the graphics option we have put a compatible motherboard into the build. The MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard in turn enables us to add the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz processor that has the LGA 1151 socket. This CPU is a great fit for The Walking Dead Onslaught and balances nicely with the Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB, to help reach the right frame rates at this resolution. We have of course chosen this CPU today because of its price to performance credentials where it is currently priced at $85.99. Our cheapest price recorded for the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz was $59, which we spotted on 27th May 2020.

With the feature rich MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 priced competitively at $49.46 it is certainly in todays The Walking Dead Onslaught build for a good reason. To offer motherboard pricing insight we spotted this being sold for a low price of $32.99, which was recorded at 28th Dec 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For The Walking Dead Onslaught At The Right Price

As one of the 3 main system components, when considering a PC built for The Walking Dead Onslaught, the correct RAM selection is obviously important. We are looking for something that is well priced but also capable of meeting the games requirements. The Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz is well priced at $49.99 and fits with the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz and Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB selections to ensure solid FPS at 1080p ultra settings. To provide a bit of system memory pricing insight, we spotted this Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz being sold for a low price of $49.99 on 9th Jan 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on The Walking Dead Onslaught

This PC build has been optimized to deliver around 78 FPS at Ultra settings for The Walking Dead Onslaught, while running on a 1080p screen size. While you might want to increase this to 109 FPS if you lower some of the graphics options inline with High graphics settings.

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 The Walking Dead Onslaught at 1440p would be pulling in about 83 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 59 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

Lets take a look to see how this The Walking Dead Onslaught PC build will run some other popular games today on 1080p. Assassins Creed: Valhalla will get 56 on Ultra and 82 FPS on High graphics settings with the Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB. Whereas on Microsoft Flight Simulator we see a return of 70 FPS on Ultra and 97 FPS when lowered to High. Another popular game at the moment is Phasmophobia, which is 92 FPS run at Ultra and 129 on High.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For The Walking Dead Onslaught

As The Walking Dead Onslaught falls into the Action, Shooter genre group, we have chosen to increase the quality of the mouse we are adding to our PC to help better meet the needs of the game. We have opted for the Cooler Master MM710, where this particular mouse is currently today’s best price but a more high performing gamer mouse than some of the other mice we normally choose in our builds.

The Walking Dead Onslaught Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

Now we take a look at the headsets available for our build, and with a game that comes in under this genre we want to increase the quality of the headset we pick to help us better enjoy the games audible immersion. Sifting through the prices and headsets available today brings us on to the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1 gaming headset. A comfortable and well balanced set of cones that are still available for a reasonable price. There are other headset options that we have seen and would recommend, across a variety of price points, so take a look at our list above in the PC build.

An Alternative The Walking Dead Onslaught Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are looking for a graphics card from Nvidia instead of the one we have selected in this build then you could try GeForce RTX 2060 Gigabyte Windforce OC 6GB, which has a 5% worse performance difference, so still similar capabilities. We have chosen it based on its price-performance figure as well, as it is currently priced at $299.99.
