And we can see the card has dropped its price by $159.23 during the past two weeks.

4GB of VRAM is needed by Wolfenstein III. This memory acts as a super fast image storage buffer between GPU and CPU and our selected GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB comes with 8GB of VRAM. This should be a suitable amount for our PC at this gaming resolution.

You can get this processor for $99, which we saw it at that price on 7th Jul 2020. This is the lowest we have seen it at while watching processor prices.Now we have a great pairing in this rig allowing the CPU and GPU to work well together to get a solid Wolfenstein III experience for the best price point at 1080p.

With the feature rich GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 priced competitively at $65.00 it is certainly in todays Wolfenstein III build for a good reason. To provide a motherboard pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 is $53.99 on 25th Jun 2020.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Wolfenstein III

The Shooter, Action genre means that we would be looking for our build’s mouse selection to be of higher quality than normal, so we have chosen the Logitech G502 SE Hero as the best mouse option based on today’s prices versus gamer quality.

Wolfenstein III Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

The Wolfenstein III is a Shooter, Action genre game and so keeping that in mind we have chosen to improve the quality of headset that we are looking at adding to this build. In light of that the clear sounds quality and improved experience offered by the Logitech G635 7.1 got our attention and today it is the best priced in its category as well. There are other options, some cheaper, that you can see by clicking our Headset selection list button above, in the build table.

An Alternative Wolfenstein III Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Perhaps you are after a AMD graphics card rather than the one we have added to this build. If so we would suggest the similar performing Radeon RX 5700 XT PowerColor Dual Fan 8GB, which has a 5% worse performance variation, but is still a suitable video card choice for this game. We have also considered the best value for performance based on today’s prices, with it costing $385.11 at the moment.
