4GB of VRAM is needed by Warhammer: Vermintide 2. This memory acts as a super fast image storage buffer between GPU and CPU and our selected Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black 8GB comes with 8GB of VRAM. This should be a suitable amount for our PC at this gaming resolution.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Warhammer: Vermintide 2 would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 47 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 65 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

FIFA 21 should get 168 FPS at Ultra settings and this goes up to 200+ frames at High settings. Horizon: Zero Dawn can get an Ultra FPS of 56 FPS and increases to 78 FPS for High. Genshin Impact is expected to be around 52 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 73 FPS on High settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Warhammer: Vermintide 2

We opted for this higher quality gaming mouse, Cooler Master MM710, because it would cater to the Shooter, Online, Action genre type that Warhammer: Vermintide 2 sits in. This is still the best priced mouse we had in our lists today, just a better quality peripheral than we might normally consider.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

Now we take a look at the headsets available for our build, and with a game that comes in under this genre we want to increase the quality of the headset we pick to help us better enjoy the games audible immersion. Sifting through the prices and headsets available today brings us on to the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1 gaming headset. A comfortable and well balanced set of cones that are still available for a reasonable price. There are other headset options that we have seen and would recommend, across a variety of price points, so take a look at our list above in the PC build.

An Alternative Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are looking for a graphics card from Nvidia instead of the one we have selected in this build then you could try GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB, which has a 2% better performance difference, so still similar capabilities. We have chosen it based on its price-performance figure as well, as it is currently priced at $219.99.
