The Walking Dead Onslaught 1440p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 18th Nov 2020

If you are looking to buy a new PC that can play The Walking Dead Onslaught then below you will find we explore exactly that. We are putting together a gaming PC build for The Walking Dead Onslaught from a carefully selected set of our favourite hardware components that are priced best today. And so our expectations are that this game will confidently run with the highest ultra graphics, viewed through a 1440p monitor resolution. 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.

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. The Walking Dead Onslaught is a title which sits in the Action, Shooter 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 2020 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 1440p The Walking Dead Onslaught 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 The Walking Dead Onslaught at 1440p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Gaming Trio 11GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $1140.16, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for The Walking Dead Onslaught. Over the past couple of weeks this card has seen a price drop of $50.67, which lends us confidence in picking it as a good purchase for this game. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Gaming Trio 11GB is $1140.16 on 29th Dec 2019.

The game also needs this graphics solution to deliver at least 8 GB VRAM to act as a buffer between the PC build’s video card and the processor.

We are choosing a well rounded and best priced motherboard (the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151), that can provide us with the cpu LGA 1151 socket type.

PC Performance Review at 1440p Ultra Settings on The Walking Dead Onslaught

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 74 FPS on High settings in The Walking Dead Onslaught at 1440p. 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 53.

Other Popular Game 1440p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect The Walking Dead Onslaught would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 32 FPS average, at 4k Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 4k graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 44 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

We should check some other games performance with our The Walking Dead Onslaught PC. Looking at some other popular games today, to see how the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Gaming Trio 11GB and this setup will run on 1440p. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is expected to return 86 FPS when run on Ultra which increases to around 120 frames per second on High. Genshin Impact would return 76 FPS on Ultra and then go up to 106 FPS at High settings. With eFootball PES 2021 we expect 143 FPS running at Ultra settings and 200 frames on High settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For The Walking Dead Onslaught

Selecting the right mouse for a game like The Walking Dead Onslaught has encouraged us to increase the quality of the mouse we would add to our build. As the game sits in the Action, Shooter genre list we felt that the Cooler Master MM710 mouse is today’s best priced but higher performing gaming mouse for this particular computer setup.

The Walking Dead Onslaught Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

The The Walking Dead Onslaught is a Action, Shooter genre game and so keeping that in mind we have chosen to improve the quality of headset that we are looking at adding to this build. In light of that the clear sounds quality and improved experience offered by the Logitech G635 7.1 got our attention and today it is the best priced in its category as well. There are other options, some cheaper, that you can see by clicking our Headset selection list button above, in the build table.
