Our objective here is to enable us to explore what PC we could buy that can play Blind Spot VR, where we carefully find the right hardware components that can run Blind Spot VR and meet its gaming needs while also heavily factoring in today’s best hardware component prices. In doing this we keep in mind our need to deliver the game reliably with ultra graphics settings, and a 1440p 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 Blind Spot VR. We will update prices here as they change and switch out components as new, better hardware is released.

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 Blind Spot VR we can see that it is in the , 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 one of the more demanding titles on the site right now, sitting at 1 on our most demanding list of 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.
