Resident Evil 3 Remake 1440p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 31st May 2020

This is a hand selected custom PC component build that will answer your question of, what PC should I buy next to play Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake on. One that has the right gaming hardware to enjoy a great Resident Evil 3 Remake experience. We are going to choose these parts with the aim of keeping a high FPS rate with ultra settings selected, using 1440p monitor resolution. As new gaming components are released for PC we will continue to review prices here each day and consider swapping in and out better components.

If we are building a PC for a specific game then various game characteristics can be considered to help us put together the right computer. When considering Resident Evil 3 Remake we can see that it is in the Shooter, Action, Adventure genre categories. This can influence some of the peripheral selections we make, as we will be wanting to make sure that the components we choose are complementary to the games needs. Something often overlooked is that we know the game itself would be developed during and shortly before 2020. Therefore we can speculate that it would have been built by the developers with hardware that has similar performance capability from that period as well. This title is currently not featuring on our list of most demanding games. With those thoughts helping us select specific hardware to match this title we will now select the best priced hardware today to meet these requirements from our curated gaming hardware lists.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p Resident Evil 3 Remake PC Build

Our key objective when putting together our next gaming PC is always going to be finding a great price point for the most performance we can. Today’s build we start by looking for the right graphics card, at the right price, that can run Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake at 1440p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1440p. For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB is $297.52 on 19th Dec 2019. Todays price is $308.14 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. Its price over the past couple of weeks has increased a bit by $10.62, which makes us think additional savings can be made here if you shop around.

Selecting The Right Resident Evil 3 Remake 1440p Motherboard and CPU

To fit with the above graphics card we have chosen a well priced motherboard, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4, that will allow us to slot in a compatible Ryzen 5 2600 processor based around the shared Socket AM4 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Resident Evil 3 Remake experience, that helps achieve steady frames at this resolution. The chosen cpu has itself been selected because it represents a good fit with the game and the price we found it at when comparing today’s cpu market prices, finding it currently priced at $124.99. A low end price for this CPU would be $114.97, which we saw it priced at on 10th Feb 2020.

With a price tag today of $54.99, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the Resident Evil 3 Remake PC. Bottom motherboard prices recorded for this mobo was when we saw it at $54.99, on 29th Nov 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Resident Evil 3 Remake At The Right Price

One of the most important hardware parts of this computer is the system memory or RAM. To make sure our resolution target and frame rates are met we have chosen to put in Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz. This is currently priced at $32.99 and is well priced compared to the system memory market today. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $54.99, and this was on 2nd Feb 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1440p Ultra Settings on Resident Evil 3 Remake

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Resident Evil 3 Remake

Finding a mouse for a game that falls into the Shooter, Action, Adventure genre group has given us reason to improve the quality of mouse we are willing to put into this PC build. We have therefore found the Razer DeathAdder Elite mouse that is today’s best priced, higher performing gamer mouse, and one that can still deliver the gaming quality we are after for Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Resident Evil 3 Remake Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

And now we move on to the PC’s audio selection, namely the gaming headset. We were looking to add a higher quality headset with this game’s PC build because it will help us enjoy the sort of game cues this type of game can offer. The headset that offers the best price today is the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1, delivering nice clear audio and a comfortable fitting at a good price. Check out the headset list above to see some alternative headsets available today for a good price.

An Alternative Resident Evil 3 Remake Graphics Card Option for 1440p

Why not switch out the graphics card in this build and replace it with a similarly powerful card from Nvidia. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Gigabyte Windforce OC 6GB graphics card has a 5% worse performance variation compared to the currently chosen video card. As the best price point for an alternative manufacturer in this range it currently costs $299.99.
