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 Death Stranding at 1440p ultra settings.

We have seen this card drop its price recently by $47.68 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019, which had it priced at $229.99. Todays price of $239.99 is certainly a good price for this hardware, considering the performance returns are a good match for this game.

Our ideal build will need to come with either 6GB of VRAM or more than. This is used by the computer to store image data quickly as it passes image information from GPU to CPU.

A low end price for this CPU would be $119.99, which we saw it priced at on 16th Mar 2020.

And with the motherboard costing $72.99 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. To provide a motherboard pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 is $59.99 on 4th Apr 2020.
