The Stranger VR 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 18th Jul 2021

Here we will create the best priced PC build to run The Stranger VR, 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 Stranger VR really well, and for the best possible price today? With the PC build brief being to maintain a stable and reliable FPS with max graphics running, along with a 1080p 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.

This title falls in the Action, Adventure genre category, which itself can influence the type of hardware we might consider for this build. Something we sometimes dont consider is that the game would be developed in 2020 and therefore on hardware from around that period of time. We can also assume that hardware from around that period would be part of the targeted hardware, in terms of performance, by the developers, as they provide graphical options for the hardware capabilities available. It is currently sat on our most demanding games list at 9, making it one of our more demanding titles on the site right now. Also it is falling outside of our most popular games list at the moment. With this info in hand to help guide our hardware build choices we will now select today’s best priced components that meet these game characteristics.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p The Stranger VR PC Build

When selecting the right graphics card today we are specifically hunting for great price-to-performance gpus that can run The Stranger VR in ultra 1080p. Right now the best graphics card purchase for this game is the GeForce RTX 2080 Super Zotac Twin Fan 8GB, which will work really well at this screen resolution. It’s currently priced at $689.99, which puts it as one of the cheapest but best performers for this type of game. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $40 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 29th Feb 2020 and it was priced at $679.99.

Selecting The Right The Stranger VR 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a cpu is largely dependent on the right motherboard. The CPU we are going to choose has the Socket AM4 socket type. So we have found the best priced and well featured mobo in the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4. The Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core 3.6GHz processor will then fit in and accompany our GeForce RTX 2080 Super Zotac Twin Fan 8GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $199.99. Giving us a bit more of an insight we saw this processor being sold for a low price of $56.98, which was on 7th Jul 2020.

Looking at motherboard prices and features the competitively priced $59.99 GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 certainly takes a well-deserved place in our build. Our motherboard price records put this mobo’s price on 18th Feb 2021 at $51.88.
