Crash Bandicoot: N Sane Trilogy 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 29th May 2020

This is a hand selected custom PC component build that will answer your question of, what PC should I buy next to play Crash Bandicoot: N Sane Trilogy on. One that has the right gaming hardware to enjoy a great Crash Bandicoot: N Sane Trilogy experience. In doing this we keep in mind our need to deliver the game reliably with ultra settings selected, along with a 1080p monitor resolution. Every day we run through our carefully chosen gaming hardware and cherry pick today’s lowest priced hardware components to help us achieve this optimum PC build list.

Let’s consider some of the interesting characteristics about this game, to help us build something that matches the sort of game we are considering to build a PC for. As we know it comes under the Arcade, Platformer genre style categories, which may well influence some of our peripheral selections, ensuring we consider the specifics for the games requirements. Looking at its development the game was built during 2018 and around that period and the devs themselves probably had hardware comparable to some of the latest hardware of that period. In terms of its relative hardware demanding position, it is considered by us as not featuring on our list of most demanding games of today at least at the moment, although that list shifts regularly. Obviously these points help give us a better picture of what we may want in the build, but they are only supporting us because when we choose, it is the best priced components that will find their way into this build today.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Crash Bandicoot: N Sane Trilogy 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 Crash Bandicoot: N Sane Trilogy 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 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. Looking a little deeper at this cards pricing history shows this card has seen a drop in its price by $10.09 over the last two weeks. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 560 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB is $137.35 on 29th Nov 2019. With a price of $179.9 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

Selecting The Right Crash Bandicoot: N Sane Trilogy 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To accompany the graphics option we have put a compatible motherboard into the build. The GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard in turn enables us to add the Ryzen 3 2200G processor that has the Socket AM4 socket. This CPU is a great fit for Crash Bandicoot: N Sane Trilogy and balances nicely with the Radeon RX 560 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 4GB, to help reach the right frame rates at this resolution. We have of course chosen this CPU today because of its price to performance credentials where it is currently priced at $126.64. Giving us a bit more of an insight we saw this processor being sold for a low price of $77.98, which was on 28th Nov 2019.

The GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard has a cost today of $54.99 that helps find it a place in today’s Crash Bandicoot: N Sane Trilogy build. We have checked the mobo prices and found that on 29th Nov 2019, this motherboard was priced at a low of $54.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Crash Bandicoot: N Sane Trilogy At The Right Price

To make sure we meet the Crash Bandicoot: N Sane Trilogy system requirements and to help us achieve the required FPS for Ultra at 1080p we have chosen the Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $32.99 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely.

At some point you might want to increase your screen size from 1080p to 1440p. Crash Bandicoot: N Sane Trilogy running with this hardware on the larger screen resolution would return 48 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

When buying a gaming PC for a specific game we still expect it to run other popular games. So as a benchmark lets see how well todays best priced PC build can deal with these 3 games at 1080p. Grand Theft Auto VI should get 0 FPS at Ultra settings and this goes up to 0 frames at High settings. Call of Duty Warzone can get an Ultra FPS of 31 FPS and increases to 43 FPS for High. Crucible is expected to be around 36 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 50 FPS on High settings.

An Alternative Crash Bandicoot: N Sane Trilogy Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Perhaps you are after a Nvidia graphics card rather than the one we have added to this build. If so we would suggest the similar performing GeForce GTX 2050, which has a 4% worse performance variation, but is still a suitable video card choice for this game. We have also considered the best value for performance based on today’s prices, with it costing $149.99 at the moment.
