Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 24th Oct 2020

What is the best PC to buy for Carrion? This is where our curated PC build coverage today will find us listing out today’s best priced computer hardware and peripherals to meet the demands that a game like Carrion might put on the gaming PC. With the PC build brief being to maintain a stable and reliable FPS with top tier graphics options selected, delivered via a 1080p screen resolution. 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.

First off, to help us pull together the best hardware for this build, we have to understand a little bit about the type of game we are creating this computer for. Carrion is a title which sits in the Action, Adventure genre categories, which may influence our peripheral selection a bit, to help accommodate some of the particular requirements there. This game would have also been built on PC hardware during 2020 and before, which can suggest the sort of specced components a developer might have been using and hoping for their game to run on. Today we find it is not currently in our top most demanding games list and currently not figuring in our more popular games. While this extra info gives a good sense of what we want from our PC, nothing really replaces our value for money assessment based on live prices, when putting together this build.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Carrion PC Build

When putting this sort of PC together we want great value for money but a machine that can deliver solid FPS on Carrion at 1080p ultra graphics. We have selected the Radeon RX 560 2GB today as a well placed option. The price for this card today is $99.99 which really helped mark it as a good fit.Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019, which had it priced at $99.99. Its price over the past couple of weeks has increased a bit by $99.99, which makes us think additional savings can be made here if you shop around.

Selecting The Right Carrion 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We have selected a MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard to allow us to then go on and add a great cpu for this Carrion build. With a LGA 1151 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Core i3-8100 4-Core 3.6GHz, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $123.97 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. Giving us a bit more of an insight we saw this processor being sold for a low price of $109.99, which was on 13th Dec 2019.

At $49.46 the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard muscles its feature rich chipboard into today’s Carrion PC build. A low recorded price for this motherboard was spotted on 28th Dec 2019 where it was $32.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Carrion At The Right Price

One of the most important hardware parts of this computer is the system memory or RAM. To make sure our resolution target and frame rates are met we have chosen to put in HyperX Fury 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz. This is currently priced at $30.99 and is well priced compared to the system memory market today. We looked through our records and saw that the RAM prices on 19th Oct 2020, represented a low price point $30.99. Which gives us an indication of how things sit today with the RAM price

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Carrion

With our key performance components in place we are expecting to see this setup running Carrion at around 72 average frames per second, on 1080p screen resolution. This should be achieved on ultra graphics settings. If you turn a few graphics options down we expect around 101 FPS at high graphics.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running Carrion at 1440p would be pulling in about 77 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 55 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

We should check some other games performance with our Carrion PC. Looking at some other popular games today, to see how the Radeon RX 560 2GB and this setup will run on 1080p. Grand Theft Auto VI is expected to return 0 FPS when run on Ultra which increases to around 0 frames per second on High. Watch Dogs Legion would return 28 FPS on Ultra and then go up to 39 FPS at High settings. With Assassins Creed: Valhalla we expect 21 FPS running at Ultra settings and 31 frames on High settings.

An Alternative Carrion Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is a fan of team AMD, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested Nvidia card, the GeForce GTX 2050. It is placed at 1% worse performance difference and certainly capable of delivering up Carrion frames on a par with our primary GPU selection. We have also selected it based on its price today, which finds it at $149.99.
