Doom Eternal 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 21st Feb 2020

If you are asking yourself, I want to buy the best priced PC that can definitely run and meet Doom Eternal recommended requirements and more then today we will be looking to put together the ideal PC build for Doom Eternal. Its therefore our desire to consistently keep stable frame rates with ultra graphics settings, pushing out visuals on 1080p screen size. Prices found here today are checked daily to make sure that the components we aare putting into our Doom Eternal represent good value for money.

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. Doom Eternal is a title which sits in the Shooter, Action 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 2020 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 4 in our list of 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 Doom Eternal PC Build

Obviously one of the most important components for this build is the graphics card. We can take a look at the best price to performance hardware right now to help deliver a system that can run Doom Eternal at 1080p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS XXX 8GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $159.99, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for Doom Eternal. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $9 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 27th Dec 2019, which had it priced at $156.98.

Our graphics card will need 4GB of VRAM built into it to act as a suitable buffer between our video card and chosen CPU. This graphics card has 8GB which will be plenty for this game at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Doom Eternal 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The backbone of a pc build is the motherboard. Todays best price mobo, that gives us the LGA 1151 socket type is the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151. From here we can then put in to this game’s bespoke PC build the Core i5-9600KF 6-Core 3.7GHz processor, which works very well in achieving the desired performance levels at a good price point. Todays price for this computer processor is $248. A good point of reference is that the bottom recorded price we have for the Core i5-9600KF 6-Core 3.7GHz is $199.99 on 28th Nov 2019.

Having the competitive price tag of $49.46, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard’s strong price point today helps it stay in this Doom Eternal PC build. A low price point for this motherboard would be $32.99, which we recorded it at on 28th Dec 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Doom Eternal At The Right Price

To make sure we meet the Doom Eternal system requirements and to help us achieve the required FPS for Ultra at 1080p we have chosen the Corsair Vengeance 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2400MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $36.15 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely. A low price point for this Corsair Vengeance 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2400MHz was spotted on 28th Nov 2019, where we saw it at $34.22.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Doom Eternal

We reckon these hardware components in our PC build will get 90 FPS at high settings in game and you could improve the graphics up to Ultra and see a FPS of 64 at 1080p.

Increasing the screen resolution for Doom Eternal would mean this setup would be getting FPS that are 49 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. The FPS would go up to 68 FPS if the graphics settings at this resolution were lowered to High.

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. Cyberpunk 2077 should get 35 FPS at Ultra settings and this goes up to 48 frames at High settings. Grand Theft Auto VI can get an Ultra FPS of 31 FPS and increases to 43 FPS for High. Fortnite: Chapter 2 is expected to be around 114 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 159 FPS on High settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Doom Eternal

We opted for this higher quality gaming mouse, Razer DeathAdder Elite, because it would cater to the Shooter, Action genre type that Doom Eternal 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.

Doom Eternal Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

With a game like this, (which falls in the Shooter, Action genre group) we wanted to make sure the audio solution we go with was up to the task. A game like Doom Eternal 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 Tritton ARK Elite 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 Doom Eternal 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 MSI Ventus XS OC 6GB, which has a 3% 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 $209.99.
