Nostos 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 13th Aug 2021

If you are looking to buy a new PC that can play Nostos then below you will find we explore exactly that. We are putting together a gaming PC build for Nostos from a carefully selected set of our favourite hardware components that are priced best today. In doing this we keep in mind our need to deliver the game reliably with the highest ultra graphics, running 1080p as the native screen size. 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 Nostos build.

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. Nostos is a title which sits in the , RPG, Sim, 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 2019 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 1 on our most demanding games list and 1 in our list of 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 Nostos PC Build

Choosing the graphics card needs to be done correctly and as we are putting together a gamer PC build for Nostos at 1080p ultra graphics we want something with the best price today while returning the best performance for that price. This has led us to the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB, which has a good price at the moment, as its currently priced at $435.61. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB is $426.41 recorded at 22nd Dec 2019. And with that in mind the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB is a great match for Nostos at 1080p ultra. It will certainly help us get good FPS. we will highlight those FPS in more detail later in this article. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $159.23 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

Selecting The Right Nostos 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a well priced motherboard, like the one we are putting in our build today really helps tie things together in terms of performance and opens up other hardware options that become available to us later in the selection. The GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard is at a great price point and lets us select our desired Socket AM4 cpu. As the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB wants a suitable good pairing when looking to run Nostos well at this resolution. The Ryzen 5 2600X 6-Core 3.6GHz is currently priced at a competitive $199.99. A low end price for this CPU would be $119.99, which we saw it priced at on 28th Nov 2019.

Having the competitive price tag of $59.99, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard’s strong price point today helps it stay in this Nostos PC build. A low price point for this motherboard would be $51.88, which we recorded it at on 18th Feb 2021.

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

Researching the correct system memory for our build means we need it to meet Nostos requirements, with a view to running reliable FPS at Ultra settings leads us to Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. Today it is one of the best priced RAM options at $42.99 and will certainly support the CPU and GPU well. A price point for this RAM was down to $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Nostos

We reckon these hardware components in our PC build will get 83 FPS at high settings in game and you could improve the graphics up to Ultra and see a FPS of 60 at 1080p.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

If you were to increase your screen size with this PC setup to 1440p then we expect to see around a figure of 45 FPS on Ultra or 64 FPS on High.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Nostos PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Forza Horizon 5, Far Cry 6 and Days Gone. Starting with Forza Horizon 5 we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 60FPS on Ultra and 83FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Far Cry 6 likely to achieve 60FPS on Ultra and 83FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Days Gone at Ultra setting we can expect 60 FPS, raising to 83 FPS on High graphics settings.

An Alternative Nostos 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.
