Hitman 3 1440p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 20th Jan 2021

If you are asking yourself, I want to buy the best priced PC that can definitely run and meet Hitman 3 recommended requirements and more then today we will be looking to put together the ideal PC build for Hitman - Season 3. We are going to choose these parts with the aim of keeping a high FPS rate with ultra settings selected, while running on 1440p screen res. As new gaming components are released for PC we will continue to review prices here each day and consider swapping in and out better components.

Let’s consider some of the interesting characteristics about this game, to help us build something that matches the sort of game we are considering to build a PC for. As we know it comes under the Shooter, Stealth genre style categories, which may well influence some of our peripheral selections, ensuring we consider the specifics for the games requirements. Looking at its development the game was built during 2021 and around that period and the devs themselves probably had hardware comparable to some of the latest hardware of that period. The devs have created the game using the Glacier platform. In terms of its relative hardware demanding position, it is considered by us as 81 placed game on our most demanding games of today list at least at the moment, although that list shifts regularly. Obviously these points help give us a better picture of what we may want in the build, but they are only supporting us because when we choose, it is the best priced components that will find their way into this build today.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p Hitman 3 PC Build

Obviously one of the most important components for this build is the graphics card. We can take a look at the best price to performance hardware right now to help deliver a system that can run Hitman 3 at 1440p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $2131, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for Hitman - Season 3. Looking a little deeper at this cards pricing history shows this card has increased its price by $10.65 over the past two weeks. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super is $1213.49 recorded at 4th Mar 2020.

We were looking to get a video card with at least 8GB of VRAM available onboard it, which acts an image data buffer between our video card and CPU. The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super has 12GB, which is suitable at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Hitman 3 1440p Motherboard and CPU

To accompany the graphics option we have put a compatible motherboard into the build. The GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard in turn enables us to add the Ryzen 5 2600X 6-Core 3.6GHz processor that has the Socket AM4 socket. This CPU is a great fit for Hitman 3 and balances nicely with the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super, to help reach the right frame rates at this resolution. We have of course chosen this CPU today because of its price to performance credentials where it is currently priced at $196.94. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 28th Nov 2019 where we saw it for $119.99.

Chosen for price point, socket type and feature list, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 has a cost today of $54.99. A low recorded price for this motherboard was spotted on 25th Jun 2020 where it was $53.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Hitman 3 At The Right Price

To make sure we meet the Hitman 3 system requirements and to help us achieve the required FPS for Ultra at 1440p we have chosen the Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 RAM 2666MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $52.99 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely. To provide a bit of system memory pricing insight, we spotted this Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 RAM 2666MHz being sold for a low price of $50 on 7th Aug 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1440p Ultra Settings on Hitman 3

With this current build we expect to see a return of 62 frames per second at ultra 1440p resolution in Hitman 3. Adjust some of the graphics options and you could boost this up to 87 FPS for High graphics settings.

Other Popular Game 1440p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Hitman - Season 3 would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 37 FPS average, at 4k Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 4k graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 52 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

To ensure we are making a good choice with this Hitman - Season 3 PC build we can check to see if it performs consistently across a variety of games. Some of the most popular games today include Assassins Creed: Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077 and Genshin Impact so let’s see how this build handles them at 1440p. Starting with Assassins Creed: Valhalla we can expect to be seeing an Ultra FPS of 34 and at High settings an FPS of 47 frames. In comparison Cyberpunk 2077 is likely to see an Ultra FPS of around 72, improving to 101 FPS on High settings. Lastly Genshin Impact will see an Ultra FPS of around 81 which improves to a 113 FPS on High settings.
