West of Dead 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 26th Nov 2020

Here we will create the best priced PC build to run West of Dead, where it will meet the demands that a game like this will put on a custom PC. Our view is to answer the question, what PC should I buy that can play West of Dead really well, and for the best possible price today? With the PC build brief being to maintain a stable and reliable FPS at top end graphics settings, returning the visuals upon a 1080p monitor screen. We will keep checking the prices every day, so that our hardware selections on this page are at the best price point and we will swap in and out whenever something else appears better value today.

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 Action, Adventure 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.
