Ashes of Creation 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 26th Nov 2020

If you are asking yourself, what hardware components should I buy for my next PC so it can run Ashes of Creation then that is exactly what we will be doing in this review. Our challenge is in choosing the right priced PC items to get together an optimum build, which can meet the needs of Ashes of Creation. In doing this we keep in mind our need to deliver the game reliably with top tier graphics options selected, using 1080p monitor resolution. As new gaming components are released for PC we will continue to review prices here each day and consider swapping in and out better components.

If we are building a PC for a specific game then various game characteristics can be considered to help us put together the right computer. When considering Ashes of Creation we can see that it is in the Online, RPG genre categories. This can influence some of the peripheral selections we make, as we will be wanting to make sure that the components we choose are complementary to the games needs. Something often overlooked is that we know the game itself would be developed during and shortly before 2020. Therefore we can speculate that it would have been built by the developers with hardware that has similar performance capability from that period as well. This title is currently not featuring on our list of most demanding games. With those thoughts helping us select specific hardware to match this title we will now select the best priced hardware today to meet these requirements from our curated gaming hardware lists.

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play Ashes of Creation at 1080p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The Radeon RX 550X 4GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $99.88 that we found it marked at today. It will certainly help return suitable FPS, which we will go into a bit later in the article, at ultra 1080p.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Ashes of Creation

We have chosen a great valued but higher performing mouse today with the Cooler Master MM710 gaming mouse. We felt a better performance mouse would better suit Ashes of Creation because it falls into the Online, RPG genre groupings and would benefit from the extra mouse quality the Cooler Master MM710 delivers.

Ashes of Creation Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset
