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 Assassins Creed: Odyssey 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 Assassins Creed: Odyssey. We are going to choose these parts with the aim of keeping a high FPS rate with ultra settings selected, running 1080p as the native screen size. 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 Assassins Creed: Odyssey. We will update prices here as they change and switch out components as new, better hardware is released.

If we are building a PC for a specific game then various game characteristics can be considered to help us put together the right computer. When considering Assassins Creed: Odyssey we can see that it is in the , Action, Adventure, Stealth genre categories and the devs chose to build it on the AnvilNext platform. This can influence some of the peripheral selections we make, as we will be wanting to make sure that the components we choose are complementary to the games needs. Something often overlooked is that we know the game itself would be developed during and shortly before 2018. Therefore we can speculate that it would have been built by the developers with hardware that has similar performance capability from that period as well. This title is currently one of the more demanding titles on the site right now, sitting at 1 on our most demanding list of games. With those thoughts helping us select specific hardware to match this title we will now select the best priced hardware today to meet these requirements from our curated gaming hardware lists.
