Wolfenstein III 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 13th Aug 2021

Here we will create the best priced PC build to run Wolfenstein III, where it will meet the demands that a game like this will put on a custom PC. Our view is to answer the question, what PC should I buy that can play Wolfenstein 3 really well, and for the best possible price today? Our mission is a top end gaming solution for this game with the highest ultra graphics, viewed through a 1080p monitor resolution. We visit this page every day to check on the prices and selected components we have added for this PC build. Naturally as new better hardware is found we will be adding and swapping to optimise this list with a view to giving us all a good jumping off point regarding expected build quality and pricing levels for our new Wolfenstein III build.

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 genres, and this can sometimes sway some of the requirements of hardware we choose. Something else to consider is that Wolfenstein III would have been built on PC hardware from 2021 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.

When putting this sort of PC together we want great value for money but a machine that can deliver solid FPS on Wolfenstein III at 1080p ultra graphics.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Wolfenstein III

We have opted for the Cooler Master MM710 because we feel it is a higher performance gaming mouse that will meet the needs of this title. When looking at a mouse for a game that sits in the , Shooter, Action game grouping we often consider paying a little bit more to get a better suited peripheral for the task. We have still chosen the best priced mouse we could find today that meets this need.

Wolfenstein III Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

Finding a headset for a game that has been identified within the following genre groups, , Shooter, Action, has given us reason to improve the quality of headset we are looking at adding into this build.. The best quality headset that also comes with the best price tag is the Logitech G635 7.1, which provides some great gaming audio. You can review some of the other headsets above, in our curated headset drop down list if you are wanting cheaper or perhaps even higher quality.

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 MSI Evoke OC 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 $397.99 at the moment.
