Our PC build has 6GB of onboard card memory to act as an image data store between the GPU and CPU. At this resolution the game will need at least 4GB of VRAM from our PC build. So with the selected GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo 6GB we have met that graphical requirement.

This CPU is a great fit for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and balances nicely with the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo 6GB, 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 $167.87. Giving us a bit more of an insight we saw this processor being sold for a low price of $119.99, which was on 16th Mar 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.
