Before getting this build together we need to consider a few background characteristics about the game we are building this PC for. DOOM 64 falls into the , Shooter, Action, 1st Person genre category groupings and would have been finished being developed during 2020 on hardware released around that period of time which may be a factor when we choose the type of hardware as it would need to be comparable in performance to hardware available from around this time. The game is currently one of the more demanding titles we have on the site, and is found on our most demanding list at the 1 spot.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p DOOM 64 PC Build

When putting this sort of PC together we want great value for money but a machine that can deliver solid FPS on DOOM 64 at 1080p ultra graphics. We have selected the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB today as a well placed option. The price for this card today is $164.99 which really helped mark it as a good fit.Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Dec 2019, which had it priced at $159. Looking a little deeper at this cards pricing history shows this card has seen a drop in its price by $14.01 over the last two weeks.

Selecting The Right DOOM 64 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We have selected a GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard to allow us to then go on and add a great cpu for this DOOM 64 build. With a Socket AM4 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Ryzen 5 2400G, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $149.99 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. Our cheapest price recorded for the Ryzen 5 2400G was $118.98, which we spotted on 3rd Dec 2019.

With a price tag today of $59.99, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the DOOM 64 PC. Bottom motherboard prices recorded for this mobo was when we saw it at $51.88, on 18th Feb 2021.

How To Choose The Best RAM For DOOM 64 At The Right Price

Researching the correct system memory for our build means we need it to meet DOOM 64 requirements, with a view to running reliable FPS at Ultra settings leads us to Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. Today it is one of the best priced RAM options at $42.99 and will certainly support the CPU and GPU well. To provide a bit of system memory pricing insight, we spotted this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz being sold for a low price of $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on DOOM 64

Now on to the frame rates for our DOOM 64 running on Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB at 1080p. We should see an average of 83 FPS on High settings or you could push up the quality to Ultra, which would get us 60 FPS.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

If you were to increase your screen size with this PC setup to 1440p then we expect to see around a figure of 45 FPS on Ultra or 64 FPS on High.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our DOOM 64 PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Back 4 Blood, Battlefield 2042 and Star Citizen. Starting with Back 4 Blood we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 60FPS on Ultra and 83FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Battlefield 2042 likely to achieve 60FPS on Ultra and 83FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Star Citizen at Ultra setting we can expect 60 FPS, raising to 83 FPS on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For DOOM 64

We have opted for the Cooler Master MM710 because we feel it is a higher performance gaming mouse that will meet the needs of this title. When looking at a mouse for a game that sits in the , Shooter, Action, 1st Person game grouping we often consider paying a little bit more to get a better suited peripheral for the task. We have still chosen the best priced mouse we could find today that meets this need.

DOOM 64 Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

And now on to the game’s audio output. In this build we are looking for higher performing headsets to better match the needs of this type of game. The Logitech G635 7.1 is today’s best priced gaming headset that meets our requirements, while still providing clear audio. If you wish to see some other curated headsets that are providing good value today then check our headset list button above for some other selections.

An Alternative DOOM 64 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is a fan of team AMD, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested Nvidia card, the GeForce GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB. It is placed at 4% better performance difference and certainly capable of delivering up DOOM 64 frames on a par with our primary GPU selection. We have also selected it based on its price today, which finds it at $219.99.
