Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 30th Oct 2020

Our objective here is to enable us to explore what PC we could buy that can play Iron Fish, where we carefully find the right hardware components that can run Iron Fish and meet its gaming needs while also heavily factoring in today’s best hardware component prices. In doing this we keep in mind our need to deliver the game reliably with top tier graphics options selected, delivered via a 1080p screen resolution. Todays prices will be checked every few hours to make sure only the best hardware at the best prices will be displayed for this build.

Before getting this build together we need to consider a few background characteristics about the game we are building this PC for. Iron Fish falls into the Adventure, RPG genre category groupings and would have been finished being developed during 2016 on hardware released around that period of time which may be a factor when we choose the type of hardware as it would need to be comparable in performance to hardware available from around this time. The game is not in our top demanding games lists. While these facts help us put together the best PC for the game we will still be selecting components based on the latest prices for the chosen peripherals and hardware for our build. Choosing today’s best priced items to give us an ideal PC build today for the game.
