Our objective here is to enable us to explore what PC we could buy that can play Hardspace: Shipbreaker, where we carefully find the right hardware components that can run Hardspace: Shipbreaker and meet its gaming needs while also heavily factoring in today’s best hardware component prices. We will therefore be aiming to run this game confidently each time at the highest graphics settings, along with a 1080p monitor resolution. Prices found here today are checked daily to make sure that the components we aare putting into our Hardspace: Shipbreaker represent good value for money.

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, Sandbox 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 2020 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.

An Alternative Hardspace: Shipbreaker Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a AMD card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Gigabyte Windforce OC 6GB instead, which comes with a 5% worse performance adjustment when compared to Radeon RX 5700 MSI Evoke OC 8GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $299.99 at the moment.
