FortressCraft Evolved 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 5th Jul 2020

If you are asking yourself, what hardware components should I buy for my next PC so it can run FortressCraft Evolved then that is exactly what we will be doing in this review. Our challenge is in choosing the right priced PC items to get together an optimum build, which can meet the needs of FortressCraft Evolved. And so our expectations are that this game will confidently run with ultra graphics settings, along with a 1080p monitor resolution. These prices are are checked multiple times each day and we update the build if other hardware is better value for money, while still meeting our gaming hardware standards.

If we are building a PC for a specific game then various game characteristics can be considered to help us put together the right computer. When considering FortressCraft Evolved we can see that it is in the Adventure, Casual genre categories. This can influence some of the peripheral selections we make, as we will be wanting to make sure that the components we choose are complementary to the games needs. Something often overlooked is that we know the game itself would be developed during and shortly before 2015. Therefore we can speculate that it would have been built by the developers with hardware that has similar performance capability from that period as well. This title is currently not featuring on our list of most demanding games. With those thoughts helping us select specific hardware to match this title we will now select the best priced hardware today to meet these requirements from our curated gaming hardware lists.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p FortressCraft Evolved PC Build

Our challenge is not overpaying for hardware we dont need, but making sure we get enough performance from our system that we can play FortressCraft Evolved at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the Radeon RX 560 2GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. Its price over the past couple of weeks has increased a bit by $99.99, which makes us think additional savings can be made here if you shop around. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019, which had it priced at $99.99. With a price of $99.99 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

Our PC build has 2GB of onboard card memory to act as an image data store between the GPU and CPU. At this resolution the game will need at least 0.003GB of VRAM from our PC build. So with the selected Radeon RX 560 2GB we have met that graphical requirement.

Todays price for this computer processor is $74.29. A good point of reference is that the bottom recorded price we have for the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz is $59 on 27th May 2020.

The MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard has a cost today of $49.46 that helps find it a place in today’s FortressCraft Evolved build. To help give some depth to the price points for this motherboard, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 was priced at $32.99 on 28th Dec 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on FortressCraft Evolved

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 90 FPS on High settings in FortressCraft Evolved 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 64.
