To accompany the graphics option we have put a compatible motherboard into the build. The ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard in turn enables us to add the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz processor that has the LGA 1151 socket. This CPU is a great fit for Phasmophobia and balances nicely with the Radeon RX 580 XFX GTR XXX 8GB, to help reach the right frame rates at this resolution. We have of course chosen this CPU today because of its price to performance credentials where it is currently priced at $157.5. Giving us a bit more of an insight we saw this processor being sold for a low price of $59, which was on 27th May 2020.

At $72.99 the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard muscles its feature rich chipboard into today’s Phasmophobia PC build. This motherboard was priced at $59.99, which we saw on 4th Apr 2020. While monitoring prices this is the lowest we have seen it at.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Phasmophobia At The Right Price

Researching the correct system memory for our build means we need it to meet Phasmophobia requirements, with a view to running reliable FPS at Ultra settings leads us to Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz.
