FIFA 22 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 23rd Jul 2021

Here we will create the best priced PC build to run FIFA 22, 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 FIFA 2021 really well, and for the best possible price today? Our mission is a top end gaming solution for this game on ultra graphics settings, and a 1080p screen resolution. We will keep checking the prices every day, so that our hardware selections on this page are at the best price point and we will swap in and out whenever something else appears better value today.

Let’s consider some of the interesting characteristics about this game, to help us build something that matches the sort of game we are considering to build a PC for. As we know it comes under the Strategy, Sport, Casual genre style categories, which may well influence some of our peripheral selections, ensuring we consider the specifics for the games requirements. Looking at its development the game was built during 2021 and around that period and the devs themselves probably had hardware comparable to some of the latest hardware of that period. The devs have created the game using the Frostbite platform. In terms of its relative hardware demanding position, it is considered by us as not featuring on our list of most demanding games of today at least at the moment, although that list shifts regularly. Obviously these points help give us a better picture of what we may want in the build, but they are only supporting us because when we choose, it is the best priced components that will find their way into this build today.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p FIFA 22 PC Build

Choosing the graphics card needs to be done correctly and as we are putting together a gamer PC build for FIFA 22 at 1080p ultra graphics we want something with the best price today while returning the best performance for that price. This has led us to the Radeon RX 560 2GB, which has a good price at the moment, as its currently priced at $99.99. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 560 2GB is $99.99 on 28th Nov 2019. And with that in mind the Radeon RX 560 2GB is a great match for FIFA 22 at 1080p ultra. It will certainly help us get good FPS. we will highlight those FPS in more detail later in this article. Its price over the past couple of weeks has increased a bit by $99.99, which makes us think additional savings can be made here if you shop around.

Our PC build has 2GB 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 2GB of VRAM from our PC build. So with the selected Radeon RX 560 2GB we have met that graphical requirement.

Selecting The Right FIFA 22 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Getting the motherboard selection right in this build helps us go on to choose a compatible cpu. With a good price today we find the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 with its LGA 1151 socket enables us to select the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz, which is priced right now at $155.93. A good point of reference is that the bottom recorded price we have for the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz is $59 on 27th May 2020.Now we have a great pairing in this rig allowing the CPU and GPU to work well together to get a solid FIFA 22 experience for the best price point at 1080p.

The awesome MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 is highly competitive, priced at $49.46, which provides it a position today in this gamer build. A low price point for this motherboard would be $32.99, which we recorded it at on 28th Dec 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For FIFA 22 At The Right Price

Researching the correct system memory for our build means we need it to meet FIFA 22 requirements, with a view to running reliable FPS at Ultra settings leads us to Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz. Today it is one of the best priced RAM options at $32.99 and will certainly support the CPU and GPU well. A price point for this RAM was down to $29.49 on 2nd Feb 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on FIFA 22

With our key performance components in place we are expecting to see this setup running FIFA 22 at around 106 average frames per second, on 1080p screen resolution. This should be achieved on ultra graphics settings. If you turn a few graphics options down we expect around 145 FPS at high graphics.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

With the larger screen resolutions always being of interest and something to consider, let’s take a look at how this build could perform. Running a 1440p FIFA 2021 we would expect 111 FPS at High and a drop to 81 when run at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

To buy this FIFA 2021 PC we will still want it to do ok when running other popular games. So to give us an idea about our builds performance lets see how it deals these 3 popular games at 1080p. F1 2021 will be expecting a Ultra FPS of 38 and a High setting FPS of 53 frames. Grand Theft Auto VI expects Ultra FPS around 0 which will improve to 0 FPS for High settings. Days Gone is expected to be around 29 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 40 FPS on High settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For FIFA 22

Selecting the right mouse for a game like FIFA 22 has encouraged us to increase the quality of the mouse we would add to our build. As the game sits in the Strategy, Sport, Casual 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.

An Alternative FIFA 22 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

The Nvidia option for this build would be the 1% worse performance difference GeForce GTX 2050 graphics card and certainly a viable choice for FIFA 22. We considered this alternative graphics solution because it was also the best price point in this performance range. It is priced at $149.99 today.
