Dwarrows 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 16th Aug 2021

Our objective here is to enable us to explore what PC we could buy that can play Dwarrows, where we carefully find the right hardware components that can run Dwarrows and meet its gaming needs while also heavily factoring in today’s best hardware component prices. Of course our sights are set on returning a good level expereince at the highest graphics settings, along with a 1080p monitor resolution. These hardware items found in our build will continue to have their prices checked and components will be swapped in and out as we feel better hardware for our build is released.

First off, to help us pull together the best hardware for this build, we have to understand a little bit about the type of game we are creating this computer for. Dwarrows is a title which sits in the , Strategy, Adventure genre categories, which may influence our peripheral selection a bit, to help accommodate some of the particular requirements there. This game would have also been built on PC hardware during 2020 and before, which can suggest the sort of specced components a developer might have been using and hoping for their game to run on. Today we find it is 1 on our most demanding games list and 1 in our list of popular games. While this extra info gives a good sense of what we want from our PC, nothing really replaces our value for money assessment based on live prices, when putting together this build.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Dwarrows PC Build

Our challenge is not overpaying for hardware we dont need, but making sure we get enough performance from our system that we can play Dwarrows at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. And we can see the card has dropped its price by $47.68 during the past two weeks. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 and it was priced at $229.99. With a price of $239.99 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

Selecting The Right Dwarrows 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a cpu is largely dependent on the right motherboard. The CPU we are going to choose has the LGA 1151 socket type. So we have found the best priced and well featured mobo in the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151. The Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz processor will then fit in and accompany our GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $167.87. Looking through our data we can see the lowest price for this cpu was on 16th Mar 2020, which had it marked up at $119.99.

Chosen for price point, socket type and feature list, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 has a cost today of $72.99. Bottom motherboard prices recorded for this mobo was when we saw it at $59.99, on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Dwarrows At The Right Price

The Dwarrows PC we are building will want some supporting RAM to help our CPU and GPU selections to deliver the right FPS. We are still focusing on achieving 1080p ultra and so the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz which we have found for $42.99 is among the best price system memory at the moment. A price point for this RAM was down to $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Dwarrows

With our key performance components in place we are expecting to see this setup running Dwarrows at around 63 average frames per second, on 1080p screen resolution. This should be achieved on ultra graphics settings. If you turn a few graphics options down we expect around 88 FPS at high graphics.

If this 1080p build was to run Dwarrows at 1440p Ultra, by increasing its screen size, then the FPS it would return on High would be around an average of 67 FPS. At Ultra we expect the average to be 48.

How this build performs for other popular games

To ensure we are making a good choice with this Dwarrows PC build we can check to see if it performs consistently across a variety of games. Some of the most popular games today include Star Citizen, Far Cry 6 and Grand Theft Auto VI so let’s see how this build handles them at 1080p. Starting with Star Citizen we can expect to be seeing an Ultra FPS of 63 and at High settings an FPS of 88 frames. In comparison Far Cry 6 is likely to see an Ultra FPS of around 63, improving to 88 FPS on High settings. Lastly Grand Theft Auto VI will see an Ultra FPS of around 63 which improves to a 88 FPS on High settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Dwarrows

We opted for this higher quality gaming mouse, Cooler Master MM710, because it would cater to the , Strategy, Adventure genre type that Dwarrows sits in. This is still the best priced mouse we had in our lists today, just a better quality peripheral than we might normally consider.

An Alternative Dwarrows 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 Dwarrows. 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.
