Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 21st Feb 2020

This is a hand selected custom PC component build that will answer your question of, what PC should I buy next to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 on. One that has the right gaming hardware to enjoy a great Call of Duty: Modern Warfare experience. Our mission is a top end gaming solution for this game at top end graphics settings, getting its visuals from a 1080p resolution monitor screen. These prices and components will be reviewed daily so we can keep the best PC hardware for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare listed on the page.

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 Shooter 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 2019 and around that period and the devs themselves probably had hardware comparable to some of the latest hardware of that period. In terms of its relative hardware demanding position, it is considered by us as not featuring on our list of most demanding games of today 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 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 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 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at 1080p ultra settings. Reviewing all the prices today our choice for best graphics card for this title points us squarely at the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix 6GB. It is capable of delivering suitable frame rates at ultra 1080p. Out of interest our lowest price tracked on this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 where we saw it for $229.99. With a price of $229.99 today its certainly very competitive, considering the performance this gpu can return.

The game also needs this graphics solution to deliver at least 4 GB VRAM to act as a buffer between the PC build’s video card and the processor.

Selecting The Right Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 1080p Motherboard and CPU

The motherboard we are going for is the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151.

Looking over the prices today we can see that the Core i5-9600 6-Core 3.1GHz processor is a great choice for this game and is currently costing $248. A good reference point is, a low price for this processor was spotted on 28th Nov 2019 where we saw it for $199.99.

Chosen for price point, socket type and feature list, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 has a cost today of $49.46. Bottom motherboard prices recorded for this mobo was when we saw it at $32.99, on 28th Dec 2019.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Call of Duty: Modern Warfare At The Right Price

As one of the 3 main system components, when considering a PC built for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the correct RAM selection is obviously important. We are looking for something that is well priced but also capable of meeting the games requirements. The Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz is well priced at $59.99 and fits with the Core i5-9600 6-Core 3.1GHz and GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Phoenix 6GB selections to ensure solid FPS at 1080p ultra settings. The cheapest system memory price for Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz was recorded as $49.99, and this was on 9th Jan 2020.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

The Shooter genre means that we would be looking for our build’s mouse selection to be of higher quality than normal, so we have chosen the Razer DeathAdder Elite as the best mouse option based on today’s prices versus gamer quality.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

And now we move on to the PC’s audio selection, namely the gaming headset. We were looking to add a higher quality headset with this game’s PC build because it will help us enjoy the sort of game cues this type of game can offer.
