Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 13th Aug 2021

Our objective here is to enable us to explore what PC we could buy that can play Starlink: Battle for Atlas, where we carefully find the right hardware components that can run Starlink: Battle for Atlas and meet its gaming needs while also heavily factoring in today’s best hardware component prices. Its therefore our desire to consistently keep stable frame rates on ultra graphics settings, while running on 1080p screen res. These hardware items found in our build will continue to have their prices checked and components will be swapped in and out as we feel better hardware for our build is released.

We will be looking across a range of things to help evaluate this best gamer build. We will be looking across the range of best value for money components based on today’s prices. Something that can influence our peripheral selection is that the game is found in the , Shooter, Action, Adventure genres, and this can sometimes sway some of the requirements of hardware we choose. Something else to consider is that Starlink: Battle for Atlas would have been built on PC hardware from 2019 and shortly before this period. All interesting points for sure, but what we are really after is that we want to select components that best fit this game type but will also be today’s best value for money hardware of good enough quality to meet the game’s needs.

With a price of $308.14 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.
