BERSERK and the Band of the Hawk 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 25th Oct 2020

Here we will create the best priced PC build to run BERSERK and the Band of the Hawk, 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 Berserk Musou really well, and for the best possible price today? With the mission objective being a high gaming standard with ultra graphics settings, returning the visuals upon a 1080p monitor screen. 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.

First off, to help us pull together the best hardware for this build, we have to understand a little bit about the type of game we are creating this computer for. BERSERK and the Band of the Hawk is a title which sits in the Action genre categories, which may influence our peripheral selection a bit, to help accommodate some of the particular requirements there. This game would have also been built on PC hardware during 2017 and before, which can suggest the sort of specced components a developer might have been using and hoping for their game to run on. Today we find it is not currently in our top most demanding games list and currently not figuring in our more popular games. While this extra info gives a good sense of what we want from our PC, nothing really replaces our value for money assessment based on live prices, when putting together this build.
