If you are asking yourself, what hardware components should I buy for my next PC so it can run Call of Duty 2021 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 Call of Duty 2021. With the mission objective being a high gaming standard with ultra settings selected, 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.
