The DMs will then rewarded and granted a high rating for interesting adventures, making the best DMs highly sought after. Gameplay for the adventurers meanwhile will be classic D&D, with tactical party-based combat and the opportunity to level your character up.

With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Sword Coast Legends experience, that helps achieve steady frames at this resolution. The chosen cpu has itself been selected because it represents a good fit with the game and the price we found it at when comparing today’s cpu market prices, finding it currently priced at $107.99.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Sword Coast Legends would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 50 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 1440p graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 70 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

We should check some other games performance with our Sword Coast Legends PC. Looking at some other popular games today, to see how the Radeon RX 560 2GB and this setup will run on 1080p. Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is expected to return 61 FPS when run on Ultra which increases to around 85 frames per second on High. Horizon: Zero Dawn would return 27 FPS on Ultra and then go up to 38 FPS at High settings. With Valorant we expect 200+ FPS running at Ultra settings and 200+ frames on High settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Sword Coast Legends

Selecting the right mouse for a game like Sword Coast Legends has encouraged us to increase the quality of the mouse we would add to our build. As the game sits in the RPG, Tabletop, Online 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.

Sword Coast Legends Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

This title’s genre, RPG, Tabletop, Online, made us want to find a headset that can really capitalise on the higher audio demands the game can deliver. We therefore selected the headset from a better group of peripherals, while still looking for the best value headset. We have chosen the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1 for its clear audio and great price today. If you wish to find cheaper or better quality headsphones then use our selection list above to see some other headsets that we have found that represent good value gaming audio today.

An Alternative Sword Coast Legends Graphics Card Option for 1080p

While we have suggested a AMD graphics card for this build you can also consider putting in a Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050, which is similar, with a 1% worse performance difference, but provides another reasonable alternative graphics option. It is currently priced at $149.99.
