FIFA 22 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 12th Aug 2021

If you are asking yourself, what hardware components should I buy for my next PC so it can run FIFA 22 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 FIFA 2021. We will therefore be aiming to run this game confidently each time with ultra graphics settings, viewed through a 1080p monitor resolution. These prices are are checked multiple times each day and we update the build if other hardware is better value for money, while still meeting our gaming hardware standards.

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 , Strategy, Sport, Casual 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 2021 and around that period and the devs themselves probably had hardware comparable to some of the latest hardware of that period. The devs have created the game using the Frostbite platform. In terms of its relative hardware demanding position, it is considered by us as 1 placed game on our most demanding games of today list 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.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p FIFA 22 PC Build

Choosing the graphics card needs to be done correctly and as we are putting together a gamer PC build for FIFA 22 at 1080p ultra graphics we want something with the best price today while returning the best performance for that price. This has led us to the Radeon RX 560 2GB, which has a good price at the moment, as its currently priced at $99.99. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 where we saw it for $99.99. And with that in mind the Radeon RX 560 2GB is a great match for FIFA 22 at 1080p ultra. It will certainly help us get good FPS. we will highlight those FPS in more detail later in this article. Looking a little deeper at this cards pricing history shows this card has increased its price by $99.99 over the past two weeks.

Our PC build has 2GB of onboard card memory to act as an image data store between the GPU and CPU. At this resolution the game will need at least 2GB of VRAM from our PC build. So with the selected Radeon RX 560 2GB we have met that graphical requirement.

Selecting The Right FIFA 22 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a cpu is largely dependent on the right motherboard. The CPU we are going to choose has the LGA 1151 socket type. So we have found the best priced and well featured mobo in the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151. The Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz processor will then fit in and accompany our Radeon RX 560 2GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $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.

Having the competitive price tag of $72.99, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard’s strong price point today helps it stay in this FIFA 22 PC build. The cheapest motherboard price for the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 was recorded as $59.99, which was on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For FIFA 22 At The Right Price

Our FIFA 22 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 Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is capable of meeting those needs, while complementing the Core i3-9100F 4-Core 3.6GHz and Radeon RX 560 2GB of our build and priced at a reasonable $42.99. We looked through our records and saw that the RAM prices on 29th Nov 2019, represented a low price point $30.35. Which gives us an indication of how things sit today with the RAM price

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on FIFA 22

Running a PC build with these hardware components for FIFA 22 we expect to see about a 145 FPS average, with a few low frame rates in some of the more intense scenes. You could up the quality of game graphics to Ultra, which will see the FPS drop to 106 at 1080p.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

If this 1080p build was to run FIFA 2021 at 1440p Ultra, by increasing its screen size, then the FPS it would return on High would be around an average of 111 FPS. At Ultra we expect the average to be 81.

How this build performs for other popular games

Ensuring our PC build for FIFA 22 runs some of the more popular games of today competently at 1080p is also something worth considering. Looking at Forza Horizon 5 we see this pc build is likely to get 106FPS on Ultra and 145FPS on High graphics settings. In contrast we can expect Star Citizen to return 106FPS on Ultra and 145FPS when lowered to High. Another popular game at the moment is Far Cry 6, which is 106 FPS running at Ultra, and 145 on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For FIFA 22

In today’s build we have chosen a higher performing mouse to better match the needs of this type of game. The Cooler Master MM710 is the best priced gaming mouse that meets our requirements.

An Alternative FIFA 22 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Or you could put the GeForce GTX 2050 graphics card into this computer, if you are after an alternative Nvidia PC build. It has a 1% worse performance variation to the Radeon RX 560 2GB, so similar in capability and we have picked it as the best priced alternative manufacturer card, with a price of $149.99.
