If you are asking yourself, I want to buy the best priced PC that can definitely run and meet Grounded recommended requirements and more then today we will be looking to put together the ideal PC build for Grounded. With the mission objective being a high gaming standard with ultra settings selected, and a 1080p screen resolution. 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 Grounded. We will update prices here as they change and switch out components as new, better hardware is released.

Before getting this build together we need to consider a few background characteristics about the game we are building this PC for. Grounded falls into the , Sandbox, Online genre category groupings and would have been finished being developed during 2020 on hardware released around that period of time and they also built the game using the Unreal Engine platform which may be a factor when we choose the type of hardware as it would need to be comparable in performance to hardware available from around this time. The game is currently one of the more demanding titles we have on the site, and is found on our most demanding list at the 1 spot. While these facts help us put together the best PC for the game we will still be selecting components based on the latest prices for the chosen peripherals and hardware for our build. Choosing today’s best priced items to give us an ideal PC build today for the game.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Grounded 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 Grounded at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo 6GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. Looking a little deeper at this cards pricing history shows this card has seen a drop in its price by $47.68 over the last two weeks. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 where we saw it for $229.99. With a price of $239.99 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

Selecting The Right Grounded 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Getting the motherboard selection right in this build helps us go on to choose a compatible cpu. With a good price today we find the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 with its LGA 1151 socket enables us to select the Core i7-9700F 8-Core 3.0GHz, which is priced right now at $264. You can get this processor for $209.99, which we saw it at that price on 2nd Dec 2020. This is the lowest we have seen it at while watching processor prices.Now we have a great pairing in this rig allowing the CPU and GPU to work well together to get a solid Grounded experience for the best price point at 1080p.

With a price tag today of $72.99, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the Grounded PC. We have checked the mobo prices and found that on 4th Apr 2020, this motherboard was priced at a low of $59.99.

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

As one of the 3 main system components, when considering a PC built for Grounded, 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 Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is well priced at $42.99 and fits with the Core i7-9700F 8-Core 3.0GHz and GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo 6GB selections to ensure solid FPS at 1080p ultra settings. A price point for this RAM was down to $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Grounded

Now on to the frame rates for our Grounded running on GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo 6GB at 1080p. We should see an average of 88 FPS on High settings or you could push up the quality to Ultra, which would get us 63 FPS.

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 Grounded at 1440p would be pulling in about 67 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 48 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

When buying a gaming PC for a specific game we still expect it to run other popular games. So as a benchmark lets see how well todays best priced PC build can deal with these 3 games at 1080p. FIFA 22 should get 63 FPS at Ultra settings and this goes up to 88 frames at High settings. Far Cry 6 can get an Ultra FPS of 63 FPS and increases to 88 FPS for High. Star Citizen is expected to be around 63 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 88 FPS on High settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Grounded

We opted for this higher quality gaming mouse, Cooler Master MM710, because it would cater to the , Sandbox, Online genre type that Grounded sits in. This is still the best priced mouse we had in our lists today, just a better quality peripheral than we might normally consider.

Grounded Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

With a game like this, when considering audio options its best to pay a little more and enjoy the sort of sounds a game like this will deliver.

An Alternative Grounded Graphics Card Option for 1080p
