Ride 2 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 10th Jul 2020

Here we will create the best priced PC build to run Ride 2, where it will meet the demands that a game like this will put on a custom PC. Our view is to answer the question, what PC should I buy that can play Ride 2 really well, and for the best possible price today? We will therefore be aiming to run this game confidently each time on the best graphics possible, viewed through a 1080p monitor 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.

First off, to help us pull together the best hardware for this build, we have to understand a little bit about the type of game we are creating this computer for. Ride 2 is a title which sits in the Racing, Sport, Sim genre categories, which may influence our peripheral selection a bit, to help accommodate some of the particular requirements there. This game would have also been built on PC hardware during 2016 and before, which can suggest the sort of specced components a developer might have been using and hoping for their game to run on. Today we find it is not currently in our top most demanding games list and currently not figuring in our more popular games. While this extra info gives a good sense of what we want from our PC, nothing really replaces our value for money assessment based on live prices, when putting together this build.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Ride 2 PC Build

Getting the right graphics card is a good way to start any game PC build. So lets take a look for the best price to performance gpu hardware available right now, that isnt overpowered for this game but will still run Ride 2 at 1080p ultra settings. Today’s prices for graphics cards lead us to the Radeon RX 590 XFX Fatboy 8GB as the smartest GPU option for this computer and one that will deliver some good frame rates at this gaming resolution at ultra. And we can see the card has dropped its price by $92.11 during the past two weeks. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 16th Dec 2019 which had it priced at $179.99. Todays price of $179.99 is certainly a good price for this hardware, considering the performance returns are a good match for this game.

Our graphics card will need 4GB of VRAM built into it to act as a suitable buffer between our video card and chosen CPU. This graphics card has 8GB which will be plenty for this game at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Ride 2 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The motherboard we are going for is the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151. Its the best priced LGA 1151 socket type motherboard on the market today and will give us the spot to choose a great pairing CPU for the Radeon RX 590 XFX Fatboy 8GB. Looking over the prices today we can see that the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz processor is a great choice for this game and is currently costing $154. A good point of reference is that the bottom recorded price we have for the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz is $119.99 on 16th Mar 2020.

Chosen for price point, socket type and feature list, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 has a cost today of $49.46. A low recorded price for this motherboard was spotted on 28th Dec 2019 where it was $32.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Ride 2 At The Right Price

As one of the 3 main system components, when considering a PC built for Ride 2, the correct RAM selection is obviously important. We are looking for something that is well priced but also capable of meeting the games requirements. The Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz is well priced at $32.99 and fits with the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz and Radeon RX 590 XFX Fatboy 8GB selections to ensure solid FPS at 1080p ultra settings. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $32.99, and this was on 2nd Feb 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Ride 2

With this current build we expect to see a return of 61 frames per second at ultra 1080p resolution in Ride 2. Adjust some of the graphics options and you could boost this up to 85 FPS for High graphics settings.

An Alternative Ride 2 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Why not switch out the graphics card in this build and replace it with a similarly powerful card from Nvidia. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix OC 6GB graphics card has a 1% worse performance variation compared to the currently chosen video card. As the best price point for an alternative manufacturer in this range it currently costs $209.99.
