If you are asking yourself, I want to buy the best priced PC that can definitely run and meet Batman: Arkham Knight recommended requirements and more then today we will be looking to put together the ideal PC build for Batman: Arkham Knight. With the mission objective being a high gaming standard with ultra settings selected, returning the visuals upon a 1080p monitor screen. The hardware selection should give us all a good jumping off point when considering what might prove a good build and price for a PC to run Batman: Arkham Knight.

Today we find Batman: Arkham Knight is currently 1 on our list of most demanding games and in our list at 1 of most popular games.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Batman: Arkham Knight 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 Batman: Arkham Knight at 1080p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $164.99, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for Batman: Arkham Knight. Watching this card over the past 2 weeks we have seen its price drop by $14.01, further supporting our selection in this hardware. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB is $159 recorded at 28th Dec 2019.

The game also needs this graphics solution to deliver at least 3 GB VRAM to act as a buffer between the PC build’s video card and the processor.

Selecting The Right Batman: Arkham Knight 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To accompany the graphics option we have put a compatible motherboard into the build. The ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard in turn enables us to add the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz processor that has the LGA 1151 socket. This CPU is a great fit for Batman: Arkham Knight and balances nicely with the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB, to help reach the right frame rates at this resolution. We have of course chosen this CPU today because of its price to performance credentials where it is currently priced at $167.87. You can get this processor for $119.99, which we saw it at that price on 16th Mar 2020. This is the lowest we have seen it at while watching processor prices.

And with the motherboard costing $72.99 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. A low recorded price for this motherboard was spotted on 4th Apr 2020 where it was $59.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Batman: Arkham Knight At The Right Price

Our Batman: Arkham Knight built PC needs some solid performing RAM to enable us to meet the game’s system requirement expectations and achieve the desired FPS at ultra 1080p. The Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is capable of meeting those needs, while complementing the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz and Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB of our build and priced at a reasonable $42.99. Lowest RAM prices were recorded for this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz when we saw it priced at $30.35, on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Batman: Arkham Knight

We reckon these hardware components in our PC build will get 134 FPS at high settings in game and you could improve the graphics up to Ultra and see a FPS of 96 at 1080p.

How this build performs for other popular games

When buying a gaming PC for a specific game we still expect it to run other popular games. So as a benchmark lets see how well todays best priced PC build can deal with these 3 games at 1080p. Battlefield 2042 should get 96 FPS at Ultra settings and this goes up to 134 frames at High settings. Days Gone can get an Ultra FPS of 96 FPS and increases to 134 FPS for High. Forza Horizon 5 is expected to be around 96 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 134 FPS on High settings.

An Alternative Batman: Arkham Knight Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are looking for a graphics card from Nvidia instead of the one we have selected in this build then you could try GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB, which has a 4% better performance difference, so still similar capabilities. We have chosen it based on its price-performance figure as well, as it is currently priced at $219.99.
