WWE 2K20 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 4th Dec 2020

This is a hand selected custom PC component build that will answer your question of, what PC should I buy next to play WWE 2K20 on. One that has the right gaming hardware to enjoy a great WWE 2K20 experience. We are going to choose these parts with the aim of keeping a high FPS rate at the highest graphics settings, pushing out visuals on 1080p 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.

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 Sim, Sport 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 not featuring on our list of most demanding games of today 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.
