Bleeding Edge 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 20th Nov 2020

Our objective here is to enable us to explore what PC we could buy that can play Bleeding Edge, where we carefully find the right hardware components that can run Bleeding Edge 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 the best graphics possible, getting its visuals from a 1080p resolution monitor screen. 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.

Bleeding Edge is currently not in our top demanding games list. It is also considered a Online, Action, Shooter genre style game and happened to be built by the devs on hardware from 2020 and in the period leading up to this. This may be worth considering when understanding the performance requirements a PC for this title might be expected to have. It is currently not really figuring in our more popular games lists. All this background info will help us better choose the components today for this game PC build, but our main factor will of course be price to performance for each component and peripheral we choose below.
