Dual Gear 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 16th Aug 2021

Here we will create the best priced PC build to run Dual Gear, 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 Dual Gear really well, and for the best possible price today? Its therefore our desire to consistently keep stable frame rates on the best graphics possible, viewed through a 1080p monitor resolution. 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 Dual Gear build.

If we are building a PC for a specific game then various game characteristics can be considered to help us put together the right computer. When considering Dual Gear we can see that it is in the , Shooter, Strategy, Fighting genre categories. This can influence some of the peripheral selections we make, as we will be wanting to make sure that the components we choose are complementary to the games needs. Something often overlooked is that we know the game itself would be developed during and shortly before 2020. Therefore we can speculate that it would have been built by the developers with hardware that has similar performance capability from that period as well. This title is currently one of the more demanding titles on the site right now, sitting at 1 on our most demanding list of games. With those thoughts helping us select specific hardware to match this title we will now select the best priced hardware today to meet these requirements from our curated gaming hardware lists.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Dual Gear 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 Dual Gear 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 2GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. Its price over the past couple of weeks has increased a bit by $99.99, which makes us think additional savings can be made here if you shop around. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 and it was priced at $99.99. With a price of $99.99 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

Selecting The Right Dual Gear 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a cpu is largely dependent on the right motherboard. The CPU we are going to choose has the Socket AM4 socket type. So we have found the best priced and well featured mobo in the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4. The Ryzen 3 3200G processor will then fit in and accompany our Radeon RX 560 2GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $193.74. The cheapest price we spotted this cpu for is $83.59, which was on 17th Jun 2020.

And with the motherboard costing $59.99 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. To provide a motherboard pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 is $51.88 on 18th Feb 2021.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Dual Gear At The Right Price

Researching the correct system memory for our build means we need it to meet Dual Gear requirements, with a view to running reliable FPS at Ultra settings leads us to Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. Today it is one of the best priced RAM options at $42.99 and will certainly support the CPU and GPU well. To help provide a sense of cost for this RAM, the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz was priced at $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Dual Gear

This computer setup should be looking at getting 64 FPS on Ultra graphics at the 1080p screen size in Dual Gear. We expect with a few tweaks to the settings this gaming PC will also get around 90 FPS at High settings, which will give you some frame rate performance to play around with.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

If this 1080p build was to run Dual Gear at 1440p Ultra, by increasing its screen size, then the FPS it would return on High would be around an average of 68 FPS. At Ultra we expect the average to be 49.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Dual Gear PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Battlefield 2042, Back 4 Blood and Grand Theft Auto VI. Starting with Battlefield 2042 we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 64FPS on Ultra and 90FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Back 4 Blood likely to achieve 64FPS on Ultra and 90FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Grand Theft Auto VI at Ultra setting we can expect 64 FPS, raising to 90 FPS on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Dual Gear

We have opted for the Cooler Master MM710 because we feel it is a higher performance gaming mouse that will meet the needs of this title. When looking at a mouse for a game that sits in the , Shooter, Strategy, Fighting game grouping we often consider paying a little bit more to get a better suited peripheral for the task. We have still chosen the best priced mouse we could find today that meets this need.

Dual Gear Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

Now we take a look at the headsets available for our build, and with a game that comes in under this genre we want to increase the quality of the headset we pick to help us better enjoy the games audible immersion. Sifting through the prices and headsets available today brings us on to the Logitech G635 7.1 gaming headset. A comfortable and well balanced set of cones that are still available for a reasonable price. There are other headset options that we have seen and would recommend, across a variety of price points, so take a look at our list above in the PC build.

An Alternative Dual Gear Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Or you could put the GeForce GTX 2050 graphics card into this computer, if you are after an alternative Nvidia PC build. It has a 1% worse performance variation to the Radeon RX 560 2GB, so similar in capability and we have picked it as the best priced alternative manufacturer card, with a price of $149.99.
