Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 17th Jan 2021

Here we will create the best priced PC build to run SUPERHOT, 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 SUPERHOT really well, and for the best possible price today? With the mission objective being a high gaming standard at top end graphics settings, delivered via a 1080p screen 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. SUPERHOT falls into the Action, Shooter genre category groupings and would have been finished being developed during 2016 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 the graphics card needs to be done correctly and as we are putting together a gamer PC build for SUPERHOT 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 550X 4GB, which has a good price at the moment, as its currently priced at $99.88. And with that in mind the Radeon RX 550X 4GB is a great match for SUPERHOT at 1080p ultra. It will certainly help us get good FPS. we will highlight those FPS in more detail later in this article. Looking a little deeper at this cards pricing history shows this card has increased its price by $99.88 over the past two weeks.

Our graphics card will need 2GB of VRAM built into it to act as a suitable buffer between our video card and chosen CPU. This graphics card has 4GB which will be plenty for this game at this resolution.

Selecting The Right SUPERHOT 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We have selected a MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard to allow us to then go on and add a great cpu for this SUPERHOT build. With a LGA 1151 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $129.25 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. Our cheapest price recorded for the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz was $59, which we spotted on 27th May 2020.

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. To provide a motherboard pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 is $32.99 on 28th Dec 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For SUPERHOT At The Right Price

The SUPERHOT 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 Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz which we have found for $32.99 is among the best price system memory at the moment. A low price point for this Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz was spotted on 2nd Feb 2020, where we saw it at $29.49.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on SUPERHOT

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 88 FPS on High settings in SUPERHOT at 1080p. 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 63.

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 SUPERHOT we would expect 67 FPS at High and a drop to 48 when run at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our SUPERHOT PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Far Cry 6, Watch Dogs Legion and Grand Theft Auto VI. Starting with Far Cry 6 we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 0FPS on Ultra and 0FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Watch Dogs Legion likely to achieve 11FPS on Ultra and 16FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Grand Theft Auto VI at Ultra setting we can expect 0 FPS, raising to 0 FPS on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For SUPERHOT

We have found a great quality and still well priced gaming mouse today with the Cooler Master MM710. A game like SUPERHOT that has Action, Shooter genre, we felt it necessary to increase the quality of the mouse we would consider because the game has some additional needs that can benefit from this type of higher specced mouse.

SUPERHOT 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 SUPERHOT Graphics Card Option for 1080p

The Nvidia option for this build would be the 118% better performance difference GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB graphics card and certainly a viable choice for SUPERHOT. We considered this alternative graphics solution because it was also the best price point in this performance range. It is priced at $239.99 today.
