Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 13th Aug 2021

If you are asking yourself, what hardware components should I buy for my next PC so it can run The Wayward Realms 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 The Wayward Realms. Our mission is a top end gaming solution for this game at top end graphics settings, running 1080p as the native screen size. As new gaming components are released for PC we will continue to review prices here each day and consider swapping in and out better components.

First off, to help us pull together the best hardware for this build, we have to understand a little bit about the type of game we are creating this computer for. The Wayward Realms is a title which sits in the , Sandbox, RPG genre categories, which may influence our peripheral selection a bit, to help accommodate some of the particular requirements there. This game would have also been built on PC hardware during 2022 and before, which can suggest the sort of specced components a developer might have been using and hoping for their game to run on. Today we find it is 1 on our most demanding games list and 1 in our list of popular games. While this extra info gives a good sense of what we want from our PC, nothing really replaces our value for money assessment based on live prices, when putting together this build.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p The Wayward Realms PC Build

Our challenge is not overpaying for hardware we dont need, but making sure we get enough performance from our system that we can play The Wayward Realms at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the Radeon RX 5700 Sapphire 8GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. As a point of interest this graphics card has increased its price by $10.62 over the past two weeks. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 19th Dec 2019 which had it priced at $297.52. With a price of $308.14 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

Selecting The Right The Wayward Realms 1080p Motherboard and CPU

We have selected a ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard to allow us to then go on and add a great cpu for this The Wayward Realms build. With a LGA 1151 socket type motherboard we choose the well priced Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz, which is at the best price to performance for processors in this range at the moment. Currently priced at a competitive $167.87 this cpu is a good performance addition for our build. Looking through our price records we noticed that this processor was seen on 16th Mar 2020 priced at $119.99.

With a price tag today of $72.99, the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard is certainly in good company, representing a feature rich, cost effective mobo for the The Wayward Realms PC. Our motherboard price records put this mobo’s price on 4th Apr 2020 at $59.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For The Wayward Realms At The Right Price

Researching the correct system memory for our build means we need it to meet The Wayward Realms requirements, with a view to running reliable FPS at Ultra settings leads us to Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. Today it is one of the best priced RAM options at $42.99 and will certainly support the CPU and GPU well. A price point for this RAM was down to $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on The Wayward Realms

So now that our core components are all in place we would expect to see around 79 FPS in The Wayward Realms at 1080p resolution, on Ultra settings. Make some adjustments to the graphics options and you could boost this up to 110 FPS for High graphics settings.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

Increasing the screen resolution for The Wayward Realms would mean this setup would be getting FPS that are 60 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. The FPS would go up to 84 FPS if the graphics settings at this resolution were lowered to High.

How this build performs for other popular games

It’s worth taking into consideration how our The Wayward Realms PC build handles other games. We’ll do this by looking at the current popular titles Forza Horizon 5, Battlefield 2042 and Resident Evil 8. Starting with Forza Horizon 5 we can see that at 1080p we are likely to see 79FPS on Ultra and 110FPS on High graphics settings. Alternatively we see Battlefield 2042 likely to achieve 79FPS on Ultra and 110FPS when reduced to High. Finally with Resident Evil 8 at Ultra setting we can expect 79 FPS, raising to 110 FPS on High graphics settings.

An Alternative The Wayward Realms Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is a fan of team AMD, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested Nvidia card, the GeForce RTX 2060 Gigabyte Windforce OC 6GB. It is placed at 5% worse performance difference and certainly capable of delivering up The Wayward Realms frames on a par with our primary GPU selection. We have also selected it based on its price today, which finds it at $299.99.
