Phantom Brigade 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 27th Jul 2021

If you are asking yourself, what hardware components should I buy for my next PC so it can run Phantom Brigade 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 Phantom Brigade. With the PC build brief being to maintain a stable and reliable FPS with the highest ultra graphics, getting its visuals from a 1080p resolution monitor screen. The hardware selection should give us all a good jumping off point when considering what might prove a good build and price for a PC to run Phantom Brigade. We will update prices here as they change and switch out components as new, better hardware is released.

Before getting this build together we need to consider a few background characteristics about the game we are building this PC for. Phantom Brigade falls into the Strategy, RPG 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 not in our top demanding games lists. While these facts help us put together the best PC for the game we will still be selecting components based on the latest prices for the chosen peripherals and hardware for our build. Choosing today’s best priced items to give us an ideal PC build today for the game.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Phantom Brigade 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 Phantom Brigade at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB 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 Dec 2019 which had it priced at $159. Todays price is $164.99 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 $14.01 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

The game also needs this graphics solution to deliver at least 4 GB VRAM to act as a buffer between the PC build’s video card and the processor.

Selecting The Right Phantom Brigade 1080p Motherboard and CPU

GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard is today’s best buy mobo, that also provides us with the Socket AM4 cpu socket type. Which is ideal for the best performance to price processor we have seen for our build, the Ryzen 3 3200G. This processor is currently priced at a competitive $193.74 and really works well with the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB. Looking through our price records we noticed that this processor was seen on 17th Jun 2020 priced at $83.59.

With the feature rich GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 priced competitively at $59.99 it is certainly in todays Phantom Brigade build for a good reason. 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 Phantom Brigade At The Right Price

Our Phantom Brigade built PC needs some solid performing RAM to enable us to meet the game’s system requirement expectations and achieve the desired FPS at ultra 1080p. The Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz is capable of meeting those needs, while complementing the Ryzen 3 3200G and Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB of our build and priced at a reasonable $32.99. Lowest RAM prices were recorded for this Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz when we saw it priced at $29.49, on 2nd Feb 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Phantom Brigade

This computer setup should be looking at getting 64 FPS on Ultra graphics at the 1080p screen size in Phantom Brigade. We expect with a few tweaks to the settings this gaming PC will also get around 89 FPS at High settings, which will give you some frame rate performance to play around with.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

With the larger screen resolutions always being of interest and something to consider, let’s take a look at how this build could perform. Running a 1440p Phantom Brigade we would expect 68 FPS at High and a drop to 48 when run at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

When buying a gaming PC for a specific game we still expect it to run other popular games. So as a benchmark lets see how well todays best priced PC build can deal with these 3 games at 1080p. Forza Horizon 5 should get 66 FPS at Ultra settings and this goes up to 92 frames at High settings. Battlefield 6 can get an Ultra FPS of 43 FPS and increases to 54 FPS for High. Star Citizen is expected to be around 59 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 83 FPS on High settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Phantom Brigade

As Phantom Brigade falls into the Strategy, RPG genre group, we have chosen to increase the quality of the mouse we are adding to our PC to help better meet the needs of the game. We have opted for the Cooler Master MM710, where this particular mouse is currently today’s best price but a more high performing gamer mouse than some of the other mice we normally choose in our builds.

An Alternative Phantom Brigade 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 GTX 1660 Asus Phoenix 6GB instead, which comes with a 4% better performance adjustment when compared to Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 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 $219.99 at the moment.
