Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 23rd Oct 2020

If you are looking to build and buy your next PC to run Interstellar Prime then this list of custom curated components will give you a great jumping off point for your next gaming PC selection. Its therefore our desire to consistently keep stable frame rates with ultra settings selected, while running on 1080p screen res. The hardware selection should give us all a good jumping off point when considering what might prove a good build and price for a PC to run Interstellar Prime. We will update prices here as they change and switch out components as new, better hardware is released.

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 Action, Adventure, RPG 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 2019 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 64 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 Interstellar Prime PC Build

Getting the right graphics card is a good way to start any game PC build. So lets take a look for the best price to performance gpu hardware available right now, that isnt overpowered for this game but will still run Interstellar Prime at 1080p ultra settings. Today’s prices for graphics cards lead us to the Radeon RX 5700 XT PowerColor Dual Fan 8GB as the smartest GPU option for this computer and one that will deliver some good frame rates at this gaming resolution at ultra. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 5700 XT PowerColor Dual Fan 8GB is $379 on 20th Aug 2020. Todays price of $379.99 is certainly a good price for this hardware, considering the performance returns are a good match for this game.

Selecting The Right Interstellar Prime 1080p 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 2600 processor that has the Socket AM4 socket. This CPU is a great fit for Interstellar Prime and balances nicely with the Radeon RX 5700 XT PowerColor Dual Fan 8GB, 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 $140.09. Bottom prices recorded for this CPU was when we saw it at $59.9, which we noticed it on 7th Jul 2020.

At $53.99 the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard muscles its feature rich chipboard into today’s Interstellar Prime PC build. Our motherboard price records put this mobo’s price on 25th Jun 2020 at $53.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Interstellar Prime At The Right Price

As one of the 3 main system components, when considering a PC built for Interstellar Prime, the correct RAM selection is obviously important. We are looking for something that is well priced but also capable of meeting the games requirements. The Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz is well priced at $50.99 and fits with the Ryzen 5 2600 and Radeon RX 5700 XT PowerColor Dual Fan 8GB selections to ensure solid FPS at 1080p ultra settings. To provide a bit of system memory pricing insight, we spotted this Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz being sold for a low price of $49.99 on 9th Jan 2020.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new Interstellar Prime PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1080p. Phasmophobia should get 100 when run on Ultra and this raises to 139 FPS on High.

Then there is Cyberpunk 2077, which is popular at the moment, which is returning 82 FPS run at Ultra and 115 frames on High.

An Alternative Interstellar Prime Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Or you could put the GeForce RTX 2070 Asus Dual Advanced 8GB graphics card into this computer, if you are after an alternative Nvidia PC build. It has a 3% worse performance variation to the Radeon RX 5700 XT PowerColor Dual Fan 8GB, so similar in capability and we have picked it as the best priced alternative manufacturer card, with a price of $379.99.
