Mass Effect Andromeda 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 16th Aug 2021

I want to buy a best priced gaming PC that can run Mass Effect 4 on Ultra. This is what we will be looking to explore and maintain in our review page here today. So we are finding the best priced peripherals and hardware for a new PC build that can run Mass Effect Andromeda And so our expectations are that this game will confidently run at the highest graphics settings, viewed through a 1080p monitor resolution. We visit this page every day to check on the prices and selected components we have added for this PC build. Naturally as new better hardware is found we will be adding and swapping to optimise this list with a view to giving us all a good jumping off point regarding expected build quality and pricing levels for our new Mass Effect Andromeda build.

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. Mass Effect Andromeda is a title which sits in the , RPG, Action 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 2017 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 Mass Effect Andromeda PC Build

Getting the right graphics card is a good way to start any game PC build. So lets take a look for the best price to performance gpu hardware available right now, that isnt overpowered for this game but will still run Mass Effect Andromeda at 1080p ultra settings. Today’s prices for graphics cards lead us to the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB as the smartest GPU option for this computer and one that will deliver some good frame rates at this gaming resolution at ultra. 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. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 28th Nov 2019 which had it priced at $229.99. Todays price of $239.99 is certainly a good price for this hardware, considering the performance returns are a good match for this game.

Selecting The Right Mass Effect Andromeda 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 ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 with its LGA 1151 socket enables us to select the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz, which is priced right now at $167.87. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 16th Mar 2020 where we saw it for $119.99.Now we have a great pairing in this rig allowing the CPU and GPU to work well together to get a solid Mass Effect Andromeda experience for the best price point at 1080p.

At $72.99 the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 motherboard muscles its feature rich chipboard into today’s Mass Effect Andromeda PC build. To provide a motherboard pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the ASRock Intel B365 ATX LGA1151 is $59.99 on 4th Apr 2020.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Mass Effect Andromeda At The Right Price

Our Mass Effect Andromeda 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 i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz and GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB 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 Mass Effect Andromeda

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 96 FPS on High settings in Mass Effect Andromeda at 1080p. There may be some lower frame rates in some parts of the game, but we have chosen the components to get some solid frame rates. Increasing the quality in the game to Ultra, will see us still getting an FPS of 69.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

With the larger screen resolutions always being of interest and something to consider, let’s take a look at how this build could perform. Running a 1440p Mass Effect 4 we would expect 73 FPS at High and a drop to 52 when run at 1440p Ultra.

How this build performs for other popular games

When buying a gaming PC for a specific game we still expect it to run other popular games. So as a benchmark lets see how well todays best priced PC build can deal with these 3 games at 1080p. Far Cry 6 should get 69 FPS at Ultra settings and this goes up to 96 frames at High settings. Days Gone can get an Ultra FPS of 69 FPS and increases to 96 FPS for High. Star Citizen is expected to be around 69 FPS for Ultra settings and improves to a 96 FPS on High settings.

An Alternative Mass Effect Andromeda Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a Nvidia card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB instead, which comes with a 7% better performance adjustment when compared to GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $899.98 at the moment.
