WWE 2K20 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 16th Aug 2021

Our objective here is to enable us to explore what PC we could buy that can play WWE 2K20, where we carefully find the right hardware components that can run WWE 2K20 and meet its gaming needs while also heavily factoring in today’s best hardware component prices. Of course our sights are set on returning a good level expereince with top tier graphics options selected, running 1080p as the native screen size. 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 WWE 2K20. We will update prices here as they change and switch out components as new, better hardware is released.

We will be looking across a range of things to help evaluate this best gamer build. We will be looking across the range of best value for money components based on today’s prices. Something that can influence our peripheral selection is that the game is found in the , Sim, Sport genres, and this can sometimes sway some of the requirements of hardware we choose. Something else to consider is that WWE 2K20 would have been built on PC hardware from 2019 and shortly before this period. All interesting points for sure, but what we are really after is that we want to select components that best fit this game type but will also be today’s best value for money hardware of good enough quality to meet the game’s needs.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p WWE 2K20 PC Build

When selecting the right graphics card today we are specifically hunting for great price-to-performance gpus that can run WWE 2K20 in ultra 1080p. Right now the best graphics card purchase for this game is the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTS Black 8GB, which will work really well at this screen resolution. It’s currently priced at $189.99, which puts it as one of the cheapest but best performers for this type of game. Looking a little deeper at this cards pricing history shows this card has seen a drop in its price by $170 over the last two weeks. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Jan 2020, which had it priced at $173.91.

Selecting The Right WWE 2K20 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. The cheapest price we spotted this cpu for is $119.99, which was on 16th Mar 2020.This CPU and GPU provide the required WWE 2K20 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 help give some depth to the price points for this motherboard, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 was priced at $59.99 on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For WWE 2K20 At The Right Price

The WWE 2K20 PC we are building will want some supporting RAM to help our CPU and GPU selections to deliver the right FPS. We are still focusing on achieving 1080p ultra and so the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz which we have found for $42.99 is among the best price system memory at the moment. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $59.99, and this was on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on WWE 2K20

We reckon these hardware components in our PC build will get 85 FPS at high settings in game and you could improve the graphics up to Ultra and see a FPS of 61 at 1080p.

If you were to increase your screen size with this PC setup to 1440p then we expect to see around a figure of 47 FPS on Ultra or 65 FPS on High.

How this build performs for other popular games

Obviously we will want to run other games on our new WWE 2K20 PC so lets explore some anticipated frame rates of some other popular games today with this hardware at 1080p. Forza Horizon 5 should get 61 when run on Ultra and this raises to 85 FPS on High. The popular Grand Theft Auto VI gets a return of 61 FPS on Ultra and then up to 85 FPS when settings are dropped to High. Then there is Far Cry 6, which is popular at the moment, which is returning 61 FPS run at Ultra and 85 frames on High.

An Alternative WWE 2K20 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

The Nvidia option for this build would be the 2% better performance difference GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB graphics card and certainly a viable choice for WWE 2K20. We considered this alternative graphics solution because it was also the best price point in this performance range. It is priced at $219.99 today.
