To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz processor based around the shared LGA 1151 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Spellforce 3 experience, that helps achieve steady frames at this resolution.

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running Spellforce 3 at 1440p would be pulling in about 68 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 48 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

Ensuring our PC build for Spellforce 3 runs some of the more popular games of today competently at 1080p is also something worth considering.
