Crysis Remastered 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 9th May 2021

If you are looking to build and buy your next PC to run Crysis Remastered then this list of custom curated components will give you a great jumping off point for your next gaming PC selection. We are going to choose these parts with the aim of keeping a high FPS rate at the highest graphics settings, delivered via a 1080p screen resolution. Todays prices will be checked every few hours to make sure only the best hardware at the best prices will be displayed for this build.

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 Shooter, Action, 1st Person 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.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Crysis Remastered PC Build

Obviously one of the most important components for this build is the graphics card. We can take a look at the best price to performance hardware right now to help deliver a system that can run Crysis Remastered at 1080p ultra settings. Looking through today’s graphics card prices we can see that the GeForce RTX 2070 Asus Dual Advanced 8GB is today’s best GPU option for this computer and it will work great at this screen resolution. Its price right now is $379.99, and running our hardware tests against that price shows this to be the cheapest but best performer for Crysis Remastered. Over the past couple of weeks this card has seen a price drop of $20, which lends us confidence in picking it as a good purchase for this game. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 19th Dec 2019 which had it priced at $379.99.

8GB of VRAM is needed by Crysis Remastered. This memory acts as a super fast image storage buffer between GPU and CPU and our selected GeForce RTX 2070 Asus Dual Advanced 8GB comes with 8GB of VRAM. This should be a suitable amount for our PC at this gaming resolution.

Selecting The Right Crysis Remastered 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The motherboard we are going for is the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151. Its the best priced LGA 1151 socket type motherboard on the market today and will give us the spot to choose a great pairing CPU for the GeForce RTX 2070 Asus Dual Advanced 8GB. Looking over the prices today we can see that the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz processor is a great choice for this game and is currently costing $159.99. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 16th Mar 2020 where we saw it for $119.99.

Today the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 competitively costs $49.46, which provides it a place in our build today. A low price point for this motherboard would be $32.99, which we recorded it at on 28th Dec 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Crysis Remastered At The Right Price

Our PC needs some well placed system memory to support our chosen CPU and GPU selections. As we are looking to achieve the 1080p ultra frame rates the Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 RAM 2666MHz is currently priced at $52.99, which is among the better priced RAM today. A price point for this RAM was down to $50 on 7th Aug 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Crysis Remastered

With our key performance components in place we are expecting to see this setup running Crysis Remastered at around 62 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 87 FPS at high graphics.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

If this 1080p build was to run Crysis Remastered at 1440p Ultra, by increasing its screen size, then the FPS it would return on High would be around an average of 66 FPS. At Ultra we expect the average to be 47.

How this build performs for other popular games

While we have put a great PC build together for Crysis Remastered it’s important to understand how it handles some of the more popular games of today at 1080p. With this PC build we can expect that the popular game Age of Empires IV will get 78FPS on Ultra settings raising to 109FPS on High. On the other hand we see that Days Gone returns 78FPS on Ultra and 109FPS when lowered to High. Lastly Resident Evil 8 may see 61 FPS running at Ultra, and 85 on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Crysis Remastered

We have found a great quality and still well priced gaming mouse today with the Cooler Master MM710. A game like Crysis Remastered that has Shooter, Action, 1st Person genre, we felt it necessary to increase the quality of the mouse we would consider because the game has some additional needs that can benefit from this type of higher specced mouse.

Crysis Remastered Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

This title’s genre, Shooter, Action, 1st Person, made us want to find a headset that can really capitalise on the higher audio demands the game can deliver. We therefore selected the headset from a better group of peripherals, while still looking for the best value headset. We have chosen the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1 for its clear audio and great price today. If you wish to find cheaper or better quality headsphones then use our selection list above to see some other headsets that we have found that represent good value gaming audio today.

An Alternative Crysis Remastered 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 5700 Sapphire 8GB graphics card has a 5% worse performance variation compared to the currently chosen video card. As the best price point for an alternative manufacturer in this range it currently costs $308.14.
