With the feature rich ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 priced competitively at $72.99 it is certainly in todays Final Fantasy VII Remake build for a good reason. A low price point for this motherboard would be $59.99, which we recorded it at on 4th Apr 2020.

At some point you might want to increase your screen size from 1080p to 1440p. Final Fantasy VII Remake running with this hardware on the larger screen resolution would return 49 FPS at Ultra graphics setting or possibly up to an average of 68 FPS on High settings.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Final Fantasy VII Remake PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Back 4 Blood, Star Citizen and Far Cry 6. Starting with Back 4 Blood we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 64FPS on Ultra and 90FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Star Citizen likely to achieve 64FPS on Ultra and 90FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Far Cry 6 at Ultra setting we can expect 64 FPS, raising to 90 FPS on High graphics settings.
