GORN 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 14th Oct 2020

Here we will create the best priced PC build to run GORN, 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 GORN really well, and for the best possible price today? And so our expectations are that this game will confidently run with ultra graphics settings, getting its visuals from a 1080p resolution monitor screen. We will keep checking the prices every day, so that our hardware selections on this page are at the best price point and we will swap in and out whenever something else appears better value today.

Before getting this build together we need to consider a few background characteristics about the game we are building this PC for. GORN falls into the Action genre category groupings and would have been finished being developed during 2019 on hardware released around that period of time which may be a factor when we choose the type of hardware as it would need to be comparable in performance to hardware available from around this time. The game is currently one of the more demanding titles we have on the site, and is found on our most demanding list at the 93 spot. While these facts help us put together the best PC for the game we will still be selecting components based on the latest prices for the chosen peripherals and hardware for our build. Choosing today’s best priced items to give us an ideal PC build today for the game.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p GORN PC Build

When selecting the right graphics card today we are specifically hunting for great price-to-performance gpus that can run GORN in ultra 1080p. Right now the best graphics card purchase for this game is the Radeon RX 5700 MSI Evoke OC 8GB, which will work really well at this screen resolution. It’s currently priced at $349.99, which puts it as one of the cheapest but best performers for this type of game. Exploring the price trends for this card shows us it has increased its price by $19 over the past two weeks, so perhaps there is still deals that can be found on this card. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 5700 MSI Evoke OC 8GB is $324.99 recorded at 10th Mar 2020.

Selecting The Right GORN 1080p Motherboard and CPU

To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Ryzen 5 2600 processor based around the shared Socket AM4 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great GORN experience, that helps achieve steady frames at this resolution. The chosen cpu has itself been selected because it represents a good fit with the game and the price we found it at when comparing today’s cpu market prices, finding it currently priced at $140.09. The cheapest price we spotted this cpu for is $59.9, which was on 7th Jul 2020.

With a price tag today of $53.99, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the GORN PC. To help give some depth to the price points for this motherboard, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 was priced at $53.99 on 25th Jun 2020.

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

Our GORN built PC needs some solid performing RAM to enable us to meet the game’s system requirement expectations and achieve the desired FPS at ultra 1080p. The Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz is capable of meeting those needs, while complementing the Ryzen 5 2600 and Radeon RX 5700 MSI Evoke OC 8GB of our build and priced at a reasonable $50.99. A low price point for this Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz was spotted on 9th Jan 2020, where we saw it at $49.99.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on GORN

With our key performance components in place we are expecting to see this setup running GORN at around 56 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 78 FPS at high graphics.

An Alternative GORN Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are wanting a graphics choice from the other team then our suggestion would be the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Gigabyte Windforce OC 6GB video card, currently priced at $299.99. This option has a performance of 5% worse when compared to the Radeon RX 5700 MSI Evoke OC 8GB and completely capable of offering a good gpu alternative.
