Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Hitman PC Build

We want a punchy GPU for this build and the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB is currently priced at a competitive $175.45. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 5th Feb 2020 which had it priced at $123.99.. This PC graphics hardware selection is a nice price to performance option when looking to run Hitman at 1080p ultra graphics. We expect to see some good FPS from this card at these specs.

Our graphics card will need 2GB 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 Hitman 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz processor based around the shared LGA 1151 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Hitman experience, that helps achieve steady frames at this resolution. The chosen cpu has itself been selected because it represents a good fit with the game and the price we found it at when comparing today’s cpu market prices, finding it currently priced at $167.87. Looking through our data we can see the lowest price for this cpu was on 16th Mar 2020, which had it marked up at $119.99.

Chosen for price point, socket type and feature list, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 has a cost today of $72.99. The cheapest motherboard price for the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 was recorded as $59.99, which was on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Hitman At The Right Price

One of the more significant hardware components in this Hitman build is the RAM. We are choosing some complementary and well priced Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. It is currently priced at $42.99. While among the best priced system memory for this build it will still provide us with the ability to reach our desired FPS for the 1080p ultra setting, that we have been focusing on with this PC. Our RAM recorded prices put this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz price at $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Hitman

With our key performance components in place we are expecting to see this setup running Hitman at around 55 average frames per second, on 1080p screen resolution. This should be achieved on ultra graphics settings. If you turn a few graphics options down we expect around 77 FPS at high graphics.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Hitman 6 would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 42 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 1440p graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 59 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new Hitman 6 PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1080p. Star Citizen should get 55 when run on Ultra and this raises to 77 FPS on High. The popular FIFA 22 gets a return of 55 FPS on Ultra and then up to 77 FPS when settings are dropped to High. Then there is Back 4 Blood, which is popular at the moment, which is returning 55 FPS run at Ultra and 77 frames on High.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Hitman

As Hitman falls into the , Shooter, Stealth genre group, we have chosen to increase the quality of the mouse we are adding to our PC to help better meet the needs of the game. We have opted for the Cooler Master MM710, where this particular mouse is currently today’s best price but a more high performing gamer mouse than some of the other mice we normally choose in our builds.

Hitman Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

Hitman falls within the following game genre grouping, , Shooter, Stealth, and as such places additional demands on the audio output you should be considering to enjoy this game. So the headset selection we have gone for is looking at a selection of better quality headsets. We are still choosing the best value headset available, it will not be the absolute cheapest you can find, because we have selected it from a better quality grouping, to help deliver the ideal build for this game. We have gone for the Logitech G635 7.1 for our initial build, which provides some great sounds at a reasonable price. You will see a button next to the headset name in the PC build list above, where you can see a few other headsets we have picked out, that are good value today.

An Alternative Hitman 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 Ti 4GB. It has a 8% worse performance difference compared to our selected Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB. Obviously we have chosen it as the cheapest price to performance offering in this range. It is currently priced at $139.99.
