Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Sniper Elite 5

We have chosen a great valued but higher performing mouse today with the Cooler Master MM710 gaming mouse. We felt a better performance mouse would better suit Sniper Elite 5 because it falls into the , Shooter, Stealth genre groupings and would benefit from the extra mouse quality the Cooler Master MM710 delivers.

Sniper Elite 5 Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

Sniper Elite 5 falls within the following game genre grouping, , Shooter, Stealth, and as such places additional demands on the audio output you should be considering to enjoy this game. So the headset selection we have gone for is looking at a selection of better quality headsets. We are still choosing the best value headset available, it will not be the absolute cheapest you can find, because we have selected it from a better quality grouping, to help deliver the ideal build for this game. We have gone for the Logitech G635 7.1 for our initial build, which provides some great sounds at a reasonable price. You will see a button next to the headset name in the PC build list above, where you can see a few other headsets we have picked out, that are good value today.

An Alternative Sniper Elite 5 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is a fan of team Nvidia, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested AMD card, the Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB. It is placed at 7% better performance difference and certainly capable of delivering up Sniper Elite 5 frames on a par with our primary GPU selection. We have also selected it based on its price today, which finds it at $899.98.
