Our objective here is to enable us to explore what PC we could buy that can play Hellion, where we carefully find the right hardware components that can run Hellion and meet its gaming needs while also heavily factoring in today’s best hardware component prices. And so our expectations are that this game will confidently run with ultra settings selected, returning the visuals upon a 1080p monitor screen.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Hellion PC Build

Our key objective when putting together our next gaming PC is always going to be finding a great price point for the most performance we can. Today’s build we start by looking for the right graphics card, at the right price, that can run Hellion at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 28th Dec 2019 where we saw it for $159. Todays price is $164.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. And we can see the card has dropped its price by $14.01 during the past two weeks.

Selecting The Right Hellion 1080p Motherboard and CPU

ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard is today’s best buy mobo, that also provides us with the LGA 1151 cpu socket type. Which is ideal for the best performance to price processor we have seen for our build, the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz. This processor is currently priced at a competitive $157.5 and really works well with the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB. A low end price for this CPU would be $59, which we saw it priced at on 27th May 2020.

With the feature rich ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 priced competitively at $72.99 it is certainly in todays Hellion build for a good reason. This motherboard was priced at $59.99, which we saw on 4th Apr 2020. While monitoring prices this is the lowest we have seen it at.

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

To make sure we meet the Hellion system requirements and to help us achieve the required FPS for Ultra at 1080p we have chosen the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $42.99 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely. 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 Hellion

This computer setup should be looking at getting 64 FPS on Ultra graphics at the 1080p screen size in Hellion. We expect with a few tweaks to the settings this gaming PC will also get around 89 FPS at High settings, which will give you some frame rate performance to play around with.
