Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 23rd Oct 2020

Our objective here is to enable us to explore what PC we could buy that can play Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2, where we carefully find the right hardware components that can run Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 and meet its gaming needs while also heavily factoring in today’s best hardware component prices. With the mission objective being a high gaming standard at top end graphics settings, viewed through 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.

First off, to help us pull together the best hardware for this build, we have to understand a little bit about the type of game we are creating this computer for. Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is a title which sits in the Strategy genre categories, which may influence our peripheral selection a bit, to help accommodate some of the particular requirements there. This game would have also been built on PC hardware during 2019 and before, which can suggest the sort of specced components a developer might have been using and hoping for their game to run on. Today we find it is not currently in our top most demanding games list and currently not figuring in our more popular games. While this extra info gives a good sense of what we want from our PC, nothing really replaces our value for money assessment based on live prices, when putting together this build.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 PC Build

We want a punchy GPU for this build and the GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA SC Ultra Gaming 4GB is currently priced at a competitive $169.99. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019 which had it priced at $169.99.. This PC graphics hardware selection is a nice price to performance option when looking to run Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 at 1080p ultra graphics. We expect to see some good FPS from this card at these specs. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $109.01 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

We also want the graphics card to have at least 4GB VRAM onboard. The video card in this build has 4 which will act as a good data buffer between the processor and the graphics hardware.

Selecting The Right Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The motherboard we are going for is the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4. Its the best priced Socket AM4 socket type motherboard on the market today and will give us the spot to choose a great pairing CPU for the GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA SC Ultra Gaming 4GB. Looking over the prices today we can see that the Ryzen 5 2600 processor is a great choice for this game and is currently costing $140.09. A good point of reference is that the bottom recorded price we have for the Ryzen 5 2600 is $59.9 on 7th Jul 2020.

And with the motherboard costing $53.99 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. We have checked the mobo prices and found that on 25th Jun 2020, this motherboard was priced at a low of $53.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 At The Right Price

The Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 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 Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz which we have found for $50.99 is among the best price system memory at the moment. To provide a RAM pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz is $49.99 on 9th Jan 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2

This computer setup should be looking at getting 70 FPS on Ultra graphics at the 1080p screen size in Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2. We expect with a few tweaks to the settings this gaming PC will also get around 98 FPS at High settings, which will give you some frame rate performance to play around with.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Cyberpunk 2077, FIFA 21 and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Starting with Cyberpunk 2077 we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 39FPS on Ultra and 55FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see FIFA 21 likely to achieve 114FPS on Ultra and 156FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War at Ultra setting we can expect 35 FPS, raising to 48 FPS on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2

Selecting the right mouse for a game like Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 has encouraged us to increase the quality of the mouse we would add to our build. As the game sits in the Strategy 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.

An Alternative Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Why not switch out the graphics card in this build and replace it with a similarly powerful card from AMD. The AMD Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse ITX 4GB graphics card has a 7% better performance variation compared to the currently chosen video card. As the best price point for an alternative manufacturer in this range it currently costs $175.45.
