Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 18th Aug 2021

Our objective here is to enable us to explore what PC we could buy that can play Smash + Grab, where we carefully find the right hardware components that can run Smash and Grab and meet its gaming needs while also heavily factoring in today’s best hardware component prices. Making our build requirement, when speccing this computer, to find the sweetest price point for our hardware list that can deliver the best FPS at top end graphics settings, running 1080p as the native screen size. We visit this page every day to check on the prices and selected components we have added for this PC build. Naturally as new better hardware is found we will be adding and swapping to optimise this list with a view to giving us all a good jumping off point regarding expected build quality and pricing levels for our new Smash and Grab build.

Today we find Smash and Grab is currently 1 on our list of most demanding games and in our list at 1 of most popular games. It also falls in under the , Shooter, Online, Action 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 2016 and shortly before. So the devs themselves may have been aiming for hardware with performance capability from this particular period.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Smash and Grab PC Build

Obviously one of the most important components for this build is the graphics card. We can take a look at the best price to performance hardware right now to help deliver a system that can run Smash and Grab at 1080p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the Radeon RX 560 4GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $107.99, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for Smash + Grab. As a point of interest this graphics card has increased its price by $107.99 over the past two weeks. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 and it was priced at $107.99.

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 4GB which will be plenty for this game at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Smash and Grab 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We have selected a ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard to allow us to then go on and add a great cpu for this Smash and Grab build. With a LGA 1151 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $157.5 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. The cheapest price we spotted this cpu for is $59, which was on 27th May 2020.

Today the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 competitively costs $72.99, which provides it a place in our build today. Our motherboard price records put this mobo’s price on 4th Apr 2020 at $59.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Smash and Grab At The Right Price

System Memory is a significant part of any gaming computer. The build today finds the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz to be the best price to performance RAM solution for our Smash and Grab PC. At last reckoning we priced it up at $42.99, which is a cheap price for this amount of RAM. There are of course other options and configurations of system memory you might like to consider in your build. We looked through our records and saw that the RAM prices on 29th Nov 2019, represented a low price point $30.35. Which gives us an indication of how things sit today with the RAM price

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Smash and Grab

We reckon these hardware components in our PC build will get 78 FPS at high settings in game and you could improve the graphics up to Ultra and see a FPS of 56 at 1080p.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Smash and Grab

In today’s build we have chosen a higher performing mouse to better match the needs of this type of game. The Cooler Master MM710 is the best priced gaming mouse that meets our requirements.

Smash and Grab 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 Logitech G635 7.1, delivering nice clear audio and a comfortable fitting at a good price.

An Alternative Smash and Grab Graphics Card Option for 1080p

As an alternative to the AMD manufactured video card we have gone for in this PC, you could also consider the similarly powerful Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050. It has a 4% worse performance difference compared to our selected Radeon RX 560 4GB. Obviously we have chosen it as the cheapest price to performance offering in this range. It is currently priced at $149.99.
