Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 13th Aug 2021

If you are asking yourself, what hardware components should I buy for my next PC so it can run Monster Hunter World 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 Monster Hunter World. With the PC build brief being to maintain a stable and reliable FPS on ultra graphics settings, along with a 1080p monitor resolution. 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.

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 , Online, Action 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 1 placed game on our most demanding games of today list 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.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Monster Hunter World PC Build

Lets not pay over the odds when we put this game’s graphics card in. We want something that can play Monster Hunter World at 1080p ultra graphics options and we want something that has a reasonable price compared to the other graphics options. The GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo 6GB has been looking like a good stand in for this games curated PC build, based on the price of $239.99 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. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 where we saw it for $229.99. Looking a little deeper at this cards pricing history shows this card has seen a drop in its price by $47.68 over the last two weeks.

Selecting The Right Monster Hunter World 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a cpu is largely dependent on the right motherboard. The CPU we are going to choose has the LGA 1151 socket type. So we have found the best priced and well featured mobo in the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151. The Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz processor will then fit in and accompany our GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo 6GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $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.

Looking at motherboard prices and features the competitively priced $72.99 ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 certainly takes a well-deserved place in our build. Our motherboard price records put this mobo’s price on 4th Apr 2020 at $59.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Monster Hunter World At The Right Price

System Memory is a significant part of any gaming computer. The build today finds the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz to be the best price to performance RAM solution for our Monster Hunter World PC. At last reckoning we priced it up at $42.99, which is a cheap price for this amount of RAM. There are of course other options and configurations of system memory you might like to consider in your build. To provide a bit of system memory pricing insight, we spotted this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz being sold for a low price of $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Monster Hunter World

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Monster Hunter World

Selecting the right mouse for a game like Monster Hunter World has encouraged us to increase the quality of the mouse we would add to our build. As the game sits in the , Online, Action genre list we felt that the Cooler Master MM710 mouse is today’s best priced but higher performing gaming mouse for this particular computer setup.

Monster Hunter World Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

With a game like this, (which falls in the , Online, Action genre group) we wanted to make sure the audio solution we go with was up to the task. A game like Monster Hunter World has encouraged us to increase the quality of the headset we choose as it will return a much better experience overall. Looking through the hardware lists available and reviewing today’s prices we felt that the Logitech G635 7.1 headset is the right way to go, delivering some great audio, clear, reliable, while still being the best priced mid range headset. We have a selection list for headsets above if you would like to consider some other options we have seen at a good price today.

An Alternative Monster Hunter World Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a Nvidia card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB instead, which comes with a 7% better performance adjustment when compared to GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo 6GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $899.98 at the moment.
