We can also assume that hardware from around that period would be part of the targeted hardware, in terms of performance, by the developers, as they provide graphical options for the hardware capabilities available. It is currently not on our list of most demanding games. Also it is falling outside of our most popular games list at the moment.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Scavengers 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 Scavengers at 1080p ultra graphics. Looking through todays available cards and comparing their hardware performance has lead us to cherry pick the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB today for this game. It is capable of returning strong frame rates at our desired ultra 1080p. The lowest price recorded by us so far for the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB is $229.99 recorded at 28th Nov 2019. Todays price is $239.99 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 $47.68 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

Selecting The Right Scavengers 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Getting the motherboard selection right in this build helps us go on to choose a compatible cpu. With a good price today we find the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 with its LGA 1151 socket enables us to select the Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz, which is priced right now at $166.13. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 19th Oct 2020 where we saw it for $164.05.Now we have a great pairing in this rig allowing the CPU and GPU to work well together to get a solid Scavengers experience for the best price point at 1080p.

With a price tag today of $49.46, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the Scavengers PC. 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 Scavengers At The Right Price

As one of the 3 main system components, when considering a PC built for Scavengers, the correct RAM selection is obviously important. We are looking for something that is well priced but also capable of meeting the games requirements. The Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz is well priced at $50.99 and fits with the Core i3-9350K 4-Core 4.0GHz and GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB selections to ensure solid FPS at 1080p ultra settings. This RAM was recorded at the lowest price of $32.99, and this was on 9th Jan 2020.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Scavengers

We reckon these hardware components in our PC build will get 88 FPS at high settings in game and you could improve the graphics up to Ultra and see a FPS of 63 at 1080p.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Scavengers

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, PvP 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.

Scavengers Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

Scavengers falls within the following game genre grouping, Shooter, Action, PvP, and as such places additional demands on the audio output you should be considering to enjoy this game. So the headset selection we have gone for is looking at a selection of better quality headsets. We are still choosing the best value headset available, it will not be the absolute cheapest you can find, because we have selected it from a better quality grouping, to help deliver the ideal build for this game. We have gone for the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1 for our initial build, which provides some great sounds at a reasonable price. You will see a button next to the headset name in the PC build list above, where you can see a few other headsets we have picked out, that are good value today.

An Alternative Scavengers Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Or you could put the Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB graphics card into this computer, if you are after an alternative AMD PC build. It has a 7% better performance variation to the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, so similar in capability and we have picked it as the best priced alternative manufacturer card, with a price of $962.99.
