Metal Gear Survive 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 16th Oct 2020

If you are looking to buy a new PC that can play Metal Gear Survive then below you will find we explore exactly that. We are putting together a gaming PC build for Metal Gear Survive from a carefully selected set of our favourite hardware components that are priced best today. In doing this we keep in mind our need to deliver the game reliably on ultra graphics settings, and a 1080p screen resolution. We will keep checking the prices every day, so that our hardware selections on this page are at the best price point and we will swap in and out whenever something else appears better value today.

Today we find Metal Gear Survive is not in our top demanding games list and currently not figuring in our more popular games lists of today. It also falls in under the Action, Stealth, Online game genre types, which itself can influence some of our choices of hardware today, to make sure we better meet the hardware needs of the game. This sort of information will help us build a fuller picture and better understand what to select when putting our best build PC together for the game. Interestingly, it might be worth thinking about the performance of the hardware that the game was originally built on, which would have been from 2018 and shortly before. So the devs themselves may have been aiming for hardware with performance capability from this particular period.

Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019 which had it priced at $107.99.

Over the last few weeks we have noticed it increase its price by $107.99, proving that additional savings can be found you will just need to shop around.

Selecting The Right Metal Gear Survive 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 5 2600 processor that has the Socket AM4 socket. This CPU is a great fit for Metal Gear Survive and balances nicely with the Radeon RX 560 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 $140.09. The cheapest price we spotted this cpu for is $59.9, which was on 7th Jul 2020.

The awesome GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 is highly competitive, priced at $53.99, which provides it a position today in this gamer build. To offer motherboard pricing insight we spotted this being sold for a low price of $53.99, which was recorded at 25th Jun 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Metal Gear Survive At The Right Price

As one of the 3 main system components, when considering a PC built for Metal Gear Survive, 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 HyperX Fury 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz is well priced at $30.99 and fits with the Ryzen 5 2600 and Radeon RX 560 4GB selections to ensure solid FPS at 1080p ultra settings.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Metal Gear Survive

This PC build has been optimized to deliver around 64 FPS at Ultra settings for Metal Gear Survive, while running on a 1080p screen size. While you might want to increase this to 89 FPS if you lower some of the graphics options inline with High graphics settings.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Metal Gear Survive would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 48 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 1440p graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 68 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new Metal Gear Survive PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1080p. Assassins Creed: Valhalla should get 23 when run on Ultra and this raises to 34 FPS on High. The popular FIFA 21 gets a return of 109 FPS on Ultra and then up to 150 FPS when settings are dropped to High. Then there is Baldurs Gate 3, which is popular at the moment, which is returning 26 FPS run at Ultra and 36 frames on High.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Metal Gear Survive

Selecting the right mouse for a game like Metal Gear Survive has encouraged us to increase the quality of the mouse we would add to our build. As the game sits in the Action, Stealth, Online genre list we felt that the Cooler Master MM710 mouse is today’s best priced but higher performing gaming mouse for this particular computer setup.

Metal Gear Survive Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

And now we move on to the PC’s audio selection, namely the gaming headset. We were looking to add a higher quality headset with this game’s PC build because it will help us enjoy the sort of game cues this type of game can offer. The headset that offers the best price today is the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1, delivering nice clear audio and a comfortable fitting at a good price. Check out the headset list above to see some alternative headsets available today for a good price.

An Alternative Metal Gear Survive Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is a fan of team AMD, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested Nvidia card, the GeForce GTX 2050. It is placed at 4% worse performance difference and certainly capable of delivering up Metal Gear Survive frames on a par with our primary GPU selection. We have also selected it based on its price today, which finds it at $149.99.
