Dying Light 2 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 31st Mar 2020

This is a hand selected custom PC component build that will answer your question of, what PC should I buy next to play Dying Light 2 on. One that has the right gaming hardware to enjoy a great Dying Light 2 experience. Our mission is a top end gaming solution for this game on ultra graphics settings, and a 1080p screen resolution. As new gaming components are released for PC we will continue to review prices here each day and consider swapping in and out better components.

Before getting this build together we need to consider a few background characteristics about the game we are building this PC for. Dying Light 2 falls into the Action, Platformer, Strategy genre category groupings and would have been finished being developed during 2020 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 A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Dying Light 2 PC Build

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play Dying Light 2 at 1080p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The Radeon RX 5600 XT XFX THICC II Pro 6GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $279.99 that we found it marked at today. It will certainly help return suitable FPS, which we will go into a bit later in the article, at ultra 1080p. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 5th Mar 2020 and it was priced at $269.99. Its price over the past couple of weeks has increased a bit by $10, which makes us think additional savings can be made here if you shop around.

Selecting The Right Dying Light 2 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 2600 processor will then fit in and accompany our Radeon RX 5600 XT XFX THICC II Pro 6GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $124.99. Our cheapest price recorded for the Ryzen 5 2600 was $114.97, which we spotted on 10th Feb 2020.

Having the competitive price tag of $54.99, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard’s strong price point today helps it stay in this Dying Light 2 PC build. Bottom motherboard prices recorded for this mobo was when we saw it at $54.99, on 29th Nov 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Dying Light 2 At The Right Price

This is part of the gamers 3 core hardware components. Our Dying Light 2 built PC will need a correct amount of RAM while being found for the best price today. We have found the Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 RAM 2666MHz to be well priced at $62.99 and will complement the Radeon RX 5600 XT XFX THICC II Pro 6GB and Ryzen 5 2600 selections of our build, helping us to achieve the desired FPS at 1080p ultra settings. Our RAM recorded prices put this Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 RAM 2666MHz price at $54.99 on 20th Jan 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Dying Light 2

Now on to the frame rates for our Dying Light 2 running on Radeon RX 5600 XT XFX THICC II Pro 6GB at 1080p. We should see an average of 88 FPS on High settings or you could push up the quality to Ultra, which would get us 63 FPS.

Increasing the screen resolution for Dying Light 2 would mean this setup would be getting FPS that are 48 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. The FPS would go up to 67 FPS if the graphics settings at this resolution were lowered to High.

How this build performs for other popular games

To get a more general understanding of how our PC build for Dying Light 2 performs we can look in to how it copes with some of the more popular games of today at 1080p. To begin we see that Half-Life: Alyx is expected to achieve 48FPS on Ultra and 67FPS on High graphics settings. Next up looking at Black Mesa we would find 85FPS on Ultra raising to 118FPS at High. For our last comparison, Cyberpunk 2077, we would likely achieve 51 FPS on Ultra and 71 FPS on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Dying Light 2

We have chosen a great valued but higher performing mouse today with the Logitech G502 SE Hero gaming mouse. We felt a better performance mouse would better suit Dying Light 2 because it falls into the Action, Platformer, Strategy genre groupings and would benefit from the extra mouse quality the Logitech G502 SE Hero delivers.

An Alternative Dying Light 2 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a AMD card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Zotac Gaming 6GB instead, which comes with a 8% worse performance adjustment when compared to Radeon RX 5600 XT XFX THICC II Pro 6GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $259.99 at the moment.
