Strange Brigade 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 24th Feb 2020

If you are asking yourself, what hardware components should I buy for my next PC so it can run Strange Brigade 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 Strange Brigade. We are going to choose these parts with the aim of keeping a high FPS rate with the highest ultra graphics, getting its visuals from a 1080p resolution monitor screen. The hardware selection should give us all a good jumping off point when considering what might prove a good build and price for a PC to run Strange Brigade. We will update prices here as they change and switch out components as new, better hardware is released.

Let’s consider some of the interesting characteristics about this game, to help us build something that matches the sort of game we are considering to build a PC for. As we know it comes under the Action, Shooter, Online genre style categories, which may well influence some of our peripheral selections, ensuring we consider the specifics for the games requirements. Looking at its development the game was built during 2018 and around that period and the devs themselves probably had hardware comparable to some of the latest hardware of that period. In terms of its relative hardware demanding position, it is considered by us as not featuring on our list of most demanding games of today at least at the moment, although that list shifts regularly. Obviously these points help give us a better picture of what we may want in the build, but they are only supporting us because when we choose, it is the best priced components that will find their way into this build today.

The lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix 6GB is $229.99 recorded at 28th Nov 2019.

We are choosing a well rounded and best priced motherboard (the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151), that can provide us with the cpu LGA 1151 socket type. This is so we can select the Core i5-9600KF 6-Core 3.7GHz that has the best price to performance position today, at $247.5.

With a price tag today of $49.46, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the Strange Brigade PC. This motherboard was priced at $32.99, which we saw on 28th Dec 2019. While monitoring prices this is the lowest we have seen it at.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Strange Brigade At The Right Price

Our Strange Brigade built PC needs some solid performing RAM to enable us to meet the game’s system requirement expectations and achieve the desired FPS at ultra 1080p. The HyperX Fury 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz is capable of meeting those needs, while complementing the Core i5-9600KF 6-Core 3.7GHz and GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix 6GB of our build and priced at a reasonable $36.99. To provide a RAM pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the HyperX Fury 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz is $36.99 on 28th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Strange Brigade

We reckon these hardware components in our PC build will get 99 FPS at high settings in game and you could improve the graphics up to Ultra and see a FPS of 71 at 1080p.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Strange Brigade would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 54 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 75 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

When buying a gaming PC for a specific game we still expect it to run other popular games. So as a benchmark lets see how well todays best priced PC build can deal with these 3 games at 1080p. Grand Theft Auto VI should get 34 FPS at Ultra settings and this goes up to 47 frames at High settings. BeamNG.drive can get an Ultra FPS of 71 FPS and increases to 99 FPS for High. Red Dead Redemption 2 is expected to be around 57 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 80 FPS on High settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Strange Brigade

We have opted for the Razer DeathAdder Elite because we feel it is a higher performance gaming mouse that will meet the needs of this title. When looking at a mouse for a game that sits in the Action, Shooter, Online game grouping we often consider paying a little bit more to get a better suited peripheral for the task. We have still chosen the best priced mouse we could find today that meets this need.

Strange Brigade Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

Finding a headset for a game that has been identified within the following genre groups, Action, Shooter, Online, has given us reason to improve the quality of headset we are looking at adding into this build.. The best quality headset that also comes with the best price tag is the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1, which provides some great gaming audio. You can review some of the other headsets above, in our curated headset drop down list if you are wanting cheaper or perhaps even higher quality.

An Alternative Strange Brigade Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Perhaps you are after a AMD graphics card rather than the one we have added to this build. If so we would suggest the similar performing Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, which has a 7% better performance variation, but is still a suitable video card choice for this game. We have also considered the best value for performance based on today’s prices, with it costing $397.79 at the moment.
