Kingdoms and Castles 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 23rd Jul 2021

If you are asking yourself, what hardware components should I buy for my next PC so it can run Kingdoms and Castles 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 Kingdoms and Castles. Our mission is a top end gaming solution for this game with top tier graphics options selected, running 1080p as the native screen size. We will keep checking the prices every day, so that our hardware selections on this page are at the best price point and we will swap in and out whenever something else appears better value today.

We will be looking across a range of things to help evaluate this best gamer build. We will be looking across the range of best value for money components based on today’s prices. Something that can influence our peripheral selection is that the game is found in the Strategy, Management genres, and this can sometimes sway some of the requirements of hardware we choose. Something else to consider is that Kingdoms and Castles would have been built on PC hardware from 2017 and shortly before this period. All interesting points for sure, but what we are really after is that we want to select components that best fit this game type but will also be today’s best value for money hardware of good enough quality to meet the game’s needs.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Kingdoms and Castles PC Build

Our challenge is not overpaying for hardware we dont need, but making sure we get enough performance from our system that we can play Kingdoms and Castles at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the Radeon RX 550X 4GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. Over the last few weeks we have noticed it increase its price by $99.88, proving that additional savings can be found you will just need to shop around. With a price of $99.88 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

Our PC build has 4GB of onboard card memory to act as an image data store between the GPU and CPU. At this resolution the game will need at least 1GB of VRAM from our PC build. So with the selected Radeon RX 550X 4GB we have met that graphical requirement.

Selecting The Right Kingdoms and Castles 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We have selected a GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard to allow us to then go on and add a great cpu for this Kingdoms and Castles build. With a Socket AM4 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Ryzen 5 2400G, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $149.99 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 3rd Dec 2019 where we saw it for $118.98.

And with the motherboard costing $59.99 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. A low price point for this motherboard would be $51.88, which we recorded it at on 18th Feb 2021.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Kingdoms and Castles At The Right Price

The Kingdoms and Castles PC we are building will want some supporting RAM to help our CPU and GPU selections to deliver the right FPS. We are still focusing on achieving 1080p ultra and so the Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz which we have found for $32.99 is among the best price system memory at the moment. To help provide a sense of cost for this RAM, the Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz was priced at $29.49 on 2nd Feb 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Kingdoms and Castles

With this current build we expect to see a return of 63 frames per second at ultra 1080p resolution in Kingdoms and Castles. Adjust some of the graphics options and you could boost this up to 88 FPS for High graphics settings.

How this build performs for other popular games

While we have put a great PC build together for Kingdoms and Castles it’s important to understand how it handles some of the more popular games of today at 1080p. With this PC build we can expect that the popular game F1 2021 will get 33FPS on Ultra settings raising to 46FPS on High. On the other hand we see that FIFA 22 returns 91FPS on Ultra and 125FPS when lowered to High. Lastly Grand Theft Auto VI may see 0 FPS running at Ultra, and 0 on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Kingdoms and Castles

We have found a great quality and still well priced gaming mouse today with the Cooler Master MM710. A game like Kingdoms and Castles that has Strategy, Management genre, we felt it necessary to increase the quality of the mouse we would consider because the game has some additional needs that can benefit from this type of higher specced mouse.

An Alternative Kingdoms and Castles Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Or you could put the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB graphics card into this computer, if you are after an alternative Nvidia PC build. It has a 118% better performance variation to the Radeon RX 550X 4GB, so similar in capability and we have picked it as the best priced alternative manufacturer card, with a price of $239.99.
