Astaria 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 26th Oct 2020

This is a hand selected custom PC component build that will answer your question of, what PC should I buy next to play Astaria on. One that has the right gaming hardware to enjoy a great Astaria experience. And so our expectations are that this game will confidently run with ultra settings selected, running 1080p as the native screen size. 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.

Astaria is currently not in our top demanding games list. It is also considered a Action, Adventure, RPG genre style game and happened to be built by the devs on hardware from 2019 and in the period leading up to this. This may be worth considering when understanding the performance requirements a PC for this title might be expected to have. It is currently not really figuring in our more popular games lists. All this background info will help us better choose the components today for this game PC build, but our main factor will of course be price to performance for each component and peripheral we choose below.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Astaria PC Build

Not wanting to pay over the odds for hardware we dont actually need, is a gamers primary objective when building their next PC. But obviously in this specific PC build we want to ensure enough we choose something with enough performance capability to run Astaria at 1080p ultra graphics options. We have taken a look at a whole bunch of graphics card prices today and compared them to the hardware’s gaming performance and our choice for this game is the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB. We will get into its expected FPS for this game a bit later in the article, but for now we know it will deliver reliable frame rates at ultra 1080p. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB is $229.99 on 28th Nov 2019. Todays price is $239.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $47.68 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

Selecting The Right Astaria 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 Astaria build. With a LGA 1151 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Core i5-9400 6-Core 2.9GHz, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $168 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 $146.95, which was on 4th Aug 2020.

With the feature rich MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 priced competitively at $49.46 it is certainly in todays Astaria build for a good reason. To offer motherboard pricing insight we spotted this being sold for a low price of $32.99, which was recorded at 28th Dec 2019.

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

Our Astaria 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 Core i5-9400 6-Core 2.9GHz and GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB of our build and priced at a reasonable $50.99. To help provide a sense of cost for this RAM, the Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz was priced at $49.99 on 9th Jan 2020.
