Final Fantasy XV 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 22nd Jan 2021

If you are asking yourself, what hardware components should I buy for my next PC so it can run Final Fantasy XV then that is exactly what we will be doing in this review. Our challenge is in choosing the right priced PC items to get together an optimum build, which can meet the needs of Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Its therefore our desire to consistently keep stable frame rates at the highest graphics settings, and a 1080p screen 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 Final Fantasy XV build.

We will be looking across a range of things to help evaluate this best gamer build. We will be looking across the range of best value for money components based on today’s prices. Something that can influence our peripheral selection is that the game is found in the RPG, Action genres, and this can sometimes sway some of the requirements of hardware we choose. Something else to consider is that Final Fantasy XV would have been built on PC hardware from 2018 and shortly before this period. All interesting points for sure, but what we are really after is that we want to select components that best fit this game type but will also be today’s best value for money hardware of good enough quality to meet the game’s needs.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Final Fantasy XV 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. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 19th Dec 2019 and it was priced at $297.52.. This PC graphics hardware selection is a nice price to performance option when looking to run Final Fantasy XV at 1080p ultra graphics. We expect to see some good FPS from this card at these specs. Exploring the price trends for this card shows us it has increased its price by $10.62 over the past two weeks, so perhaps there is still deals that can be found on this card.

Our ideal build will need to come with either 11GB of VRAM or more than. This is used by the computer to store image data quickly as it passes image information from GPU to CPU. Our selected Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB comes with 8GB of VRAM which should cover image transfer for Final Fantasy XV at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Final Fantasy XV 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 2600X 6-Core 3.6GHz processor will then fit in and accompany our Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $197.25. Looking through our data we can see the lowest price for this cpu was on 28th Nov 2019, which had it marked up at $119.99.

The awesome GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 is highly competitive, priced at $54.99, which provides it a position today in this gamer build. To help give some depth to the price points for this motherboard, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 was priced at $53.99 on 25th Jun 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Final Fantasy XV At The Right Price

The Final Fantasy XV PC we are building will want some supporting RAM to help our CPU and GPU selections to deliver the right FPS. We are still focusing on achieving 1080p ultra and so the Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 RAM 2666MHz which we have found for $52.99 is among the best price system memory at the moment. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $53.99, and this was on 7th Aug 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Final Fantasy XV

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 Final Fantasy Versus XIII we would expect 72 FPS at High and a drop to 51 when run at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

Ensuring our PC build for Final Fantasy XV runs some of the more popular games of today competently at 1080p is also something worth considering. Looking at Assassins Creed: Valhalla we see this pc build is likely to get 30FPS on Ultra and 42FPS on High graphics settings. In contrast we can expect FIFA 21 to return 200+FPS on Ultra and 200+FPS when lowered to High. Another popular game at the moment is Resident Evil 8, which is 74 FPS running at Ultra, and 103 on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Final Fantasy XV Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Perhaps you are after a Nvidia graphics card rather than the one we have added to this build. If so we would suggest the similar performing GeForce RTX 2060 Gigabyte Windforce OC 6GB, which has a 5% worse performance variation, but is still a suitable video card choice for this game. We have also considered the best value for performance based on today’s prices, with it costing $299.99 at the moment.
