If you are asking yourself, what hardware components should I buy for my next PC so it can run Othercide then that is exactly what we will be doing in this review. Our challenge is in choosing the right priced PC items to get together an optimum build, which can meet the needs of Othercide. Our mission is a top end gaming solution for this game with ultra settings selected, along with a 1080p monitor resolution. Prices found here today are checked daily to make sure that the components we aare putting into our Othercide represent good value for money.

We will be looking across a range of things to help evaluate this best gamer build. We will be looking across the range of best value for money components based on today’s prices. Something that can influence our peripheral selection is that the game is found in the , Strategy, RPG, Turn-based genres, and this can sometimes sway some of the requirements of hardware we choose. Something else to consider is that Othercide would have been built on PC hardware from 2020 and shortly before this period. Something else to factor in is that this game was built on the Unity. All interesting points for sure, but what we are really after is that we want to select components that best fit this game type but will also be today’s best value for money hardware of good enough quality to meet the game’s needs.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Othercide 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 Othercide at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019, which had it priced at $229.99. Todays price is $239.99 which is why we have identified it as a competitive performance to price ratio compared to other hardware in the marketplace today. We have seen this card drop its price recently by $47.68 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

This build will need to have at least 2GB of VRAM onboard the graphics card, to act as an image data store between the GPU and CPU. Our selected builds graphics card has 6GB, which is plenty for getting suitable gaming at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Othercide 1080p 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 2400G processor based around the shared Socket AM4 socket. With the chosen cpu and gpu working together we will get a great Othercide 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 $149.99. Giving us a bit more of an insight we saw this processor being sold for a low price of $118.98, which was on 3rd Dec 2019.

Chosen for price point, socket type and feature list, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 has a cost today of $59.99. To offer motherboard pricing insight we spotted this being sold for a low price of $51.88, which was recorded at 18th Feb 2021.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Othercide 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 Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. This is currently priced at $42.99 and is well priced compared to the system memory market today. Lowest RAM prices were recorded for this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz when we saw it priced at $30.35, on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Othercide

This PC build has been optimized to deliver around 63 FPS at Ultra settings for Othercide, while running on a 1080p screen size. While you might want to increase this to 88 FPS if you lower some of the graphics options inline with High graphics settings.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Othercide would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 48 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 1440p graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 67 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our Othercide PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Back 4 Blood, FIFA 22 and Star Citizen. Starting with Back 4 Blood we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 63FPS on Ultra and 88FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see FIFA 22 likely to achieve 63FPS on Ultra and 88FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Star Citizen at Ultra setting we can expect 63 FPS, raising to 88 FPS on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Othercide

In today’s build we have chosen a higher performing mouse to better match the needs of this type of game. The Cooler Master MM710 is the best priced gaming mouse that meets our requirements.

An Alternative Othercide Graphics Card Option for 1080p

The AMD option for this build would be the 7% better performance difference Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB graphics card and certainly a viable choice for Othercide. We considered this alternative graphics solution because it was also the best price point in this performance range. It is priced at $899.98 today.
