Blue Protocol 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 6th Jul 2020

Our objective here is to enable us to explore what PC we could buy that can play Blue Protocol, where we carefully find the right hardware components that can run Blue Protocol and meet its gaming needs while also heavily factoring in today’s best hardware component prices. With the PC build brief being to maintain a stable and reliable FPS at the highest graphics settings, 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 Blue Protocol. We will update prices here as they change and switch out components as new, better hardware is released.

This title falls in the RPG, Online genre category, which itself can influence the type of hardware we might consider for this build. We know that it was built on the Unreal Engine platform by the developers. Something we sometimes dont consider is that the game would be developed in 0000 and therefore on hardware from around that period of time. We can also assume that hardware from around that period would be part of the targeted hardware, in terms of performance, by the developers, as they provide graphical options for the hardware capabilities available. It is currently not on our list of most demanding games. Also it is falling outside of our most popular games list at the moment. With this info in hand to help guide our hardware build choices we will now select today’s best priced components that meet these game characteristics.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Blue Protocol PC Build

When putting this sort of PC together we want great value for money but a machine that can deliver solid FPS on Blue Protocol at 1080p ultra graphics. We have selected the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix 6GB today as a well placed option. The price for this card today is $229.99 which really helped mark it as a good fit.For reference, the lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix 6GB is $229.99 on 28th Nov 2019.

Selecting The Right Blue Protocol 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a well priced motherboard, like the one we are putting in our build today really helps tie things together in terms of performance and opens up other hardware options that become available to us later in the selection. The MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard is at a great price point and lets us select our desired LGA 1151 cpu. As the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix 6GB wants a suitable good pairing when looking to run Blue Protocol well at this resolution. The Core i3-9350KF 4-Core 4.0GHz is currently priced at a competitive $164.99. Our cheapest price recorded for the Core i3-9350KF 4-Core 4.0GHz was $164.99, which we spotted on 2nd Jul 2020.

And with the motherboard costing $49.46 this really helps pull the PC we are building together. The cheapest motherboard price for the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 was recorded as $32.99, which was on 28th Dec 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Blue Protocol At The Right Price

To make sure we meet the Blue Protocol system requirements and to help us achieve the required FPS for Ultra at 1080p we have chosen the Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz, which is todays best priced system memory. It is priced at $32.99 and compliments the CPU and GPU nicely. The cheapest system memory price for Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz was recorded as $29.49, and this was on 2nd Feb 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Blue Protocol

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 88 FPS on High settings in Blue Protocol at 1080p. There may be some lower frame rates in some parts of the game, but we have chosen the components to get some solid frame rates. Increasing the quality in the game to Ultra, will see us still getting an FPS of 63.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Blue Protocol

Selecting the right mouse for a game like Blue Protocol has encouraged us to increase the quality of the mouse we would add to our build. As the game sits in the RPG, Online genre list we felt that the Cooler Master MM710 mouse is today’s best priced but higher performing gaming mouse for this particular computer setup.

Blue Protocol Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

Blue Protocol falls within the following game genre grouping, RPG, Online, and as such places additional demands on the audio output you should be considering to enjoy this game. So the headset selection we have gone for is looking at a selection of better quality headsets. We are still choosing the best value headset available, it will not be the absolute cheapest you can find, because we have selected it from a better quality grouping, to help deliver the ideal build for this game. We have gone for the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1 for our initial build, which provides some great sounds at a reasonable price. You will see a button next to the headset name in the PC build list above, where you can see a few other headsets we have picked out, that are good value today.

An Alternative Blue Protocol Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Why not switch out the graphics card in this build and replace it with a similarly powerful card from AMD. The AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB graphics card has a 7% better performance variation compared to the currently chosen video card. As the best price point for an alternative manufacturer in this range it currently costs $529.99.
