Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 12th Aug 2021

If you are asking yourself, I want to buy the best priced PC that can definitely run and meet Humankind recommended requirements and more then today we will be looking to put together the ideal PC build for Humankind. With the mission objective being a high gaming standard with max graphics running, viewed through a 1080p monitor resolution. Every day we run through our carefully chosen gaming hardware and cherry pick today’s lowest priced hardware components to help us achieve this optimum PC build list.

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 , Strategy, Turn-based 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. In terms of its relative hardware demanding position, it is considered by us as 1 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 1080p Humankind PC Build

Our challenge is not overpaying for hardware we dont need, but making sure we get enough performance from our system that we can play Humankind at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the GeForce RTX 2080. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. Watching this card over the past 2 weeks we have seen its price drop by $169.06, further supporting our selection in this hardware. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 where we saw it for $650.99. With a price of $730.93 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

6GB of VRAM is needed by Humankind. This memory acts as a super fast image storage buffer between GPU and CPU and our selected GeForce RTX 2080 comes with 8GB of VRAM. This should be a suitable amount for our PC at this gaming resolution.

Selecting The Right Humankind 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We are choosing a well rounded and best priced motherboard (the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151), that can provide us with the cpu LGA 1151 socket type. This is so we can select the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz that has the best price to performance position today, at $167.87. Giving us a bit more of an insight we saw this processor being sold for a low price of $119.99, which was on 16th Mar 2020.This CPU and GPU provide the required Humankind experience while maintaining the best price point at this 1080p resolution.

And with the motherboard costing $72.99 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. To offer motherboard pricing insight we spotted this being sold for a low price of $59.99, which was recorded at 4th Apr 2020.

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

One of the more significant hardware components in this Humankind build is the RAM. We are choosing some complementary and well priced Patriot Viper Elite 16GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz. It is currently priced at $67.99. While among the best priced system memory for this build it will still provide us with the ability to reach our desired FPS for the 1080p ultra setting, that we have been focusing on with this PC. To help provide a sense of cost for this RAM, the Patriot Viper Elite 16GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz was priced at $49.99 on 30th Nov 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Humankind

This computer setup should be looking at getting 88 FPS on Ultra graphics at the 1080p screen size in Humankind. We expect with a few tweaks to the settings this gaming PC will also get around 123 FPS at High settings, which will give you some frame rate performance to play around with.

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 Humankind at 1440p would be pulling in about 93 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 67 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

Ensuring our PC build for Humankind runs some of the more popular games of today competently at 1080p is also something worth considering. Looking at Dying Light 2 we see this pc build is likely to get 88FPS on Ultra and 123FPS on High graphics settings. In contrast we can expect Grand Theft Auto VI to return 88FPS on Ultra and 123FPS when lowered to High. Another popular game at the moment is Star Citizen, which is 88 FPS running at Ultra, and 123 on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Humankind

The , Strategy, Turn-based genre means that we would be looking for our build’s mouse selection to be of higher quality than normal, so we have chosen the Cooler Master MM710 as the best mouse option based on today’s prices versus gamer quality.

An Alternative Humankind Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are wanting a graphics choice from the other team then our suggestion would be the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB video card, currently priced at $899.98. This option has a performance of 31% worse when compared to the GeForce RTX 2080 and completely capable of offering a good gpu alternative.
