With the mission objective being a high gaming standard with ultra settings selected, getting its visuals from a 1080p resolution monitor screen. Prices found here today are checked daily to make sure that the components we aare putting into our Kingdom Hearts III represent good value for money.

This title falls in the RPG, Action genre category, which itself can influence the type of hardware we might consider for this build. Something we sometimes dont consider is that the game would be developed in 2021 and therefore on hardware from around that period of time. We can also assume that hardware from around that period would be part of the targeted hardware, in terms of performance, by the developers, as they provide graphical options for the hardware capabilities available. It is currently not on our list of most demanding games. Also it is falling outside of our most popular games list at the moment. With this info in hand to help guide our hardware build choices we will now select today’s best priced components that meet these game characteristics.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Kingdom Hearts III 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 Kingdom Hearts III at 1080p ultra settings. Today’s prices for graphics cards lead us to the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB as the smartest GPU option for this computer and one that will deliver some good frame rates at this gaming resolution at ultra. Its price over the past couple of weeks has increased a bit by $9.91, which makes us think additional savings can be made here if you shop around. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 6th Dec 2019 which had it priced at $376.05. Todays price of $397.99 is certainly a good price for this hardware, considering the performance returns are a good match for this game.

We were looking to get a video card with at least 8GB of VRAM available onboard it, which acts an image data buffer between our video card and CPU. The Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB has 8GB, which is suitable at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Kingdom Hearts III 1080p Motherboard and CPU

MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard is today’s best buy mobo, that also provides us with the LGA 1151 cpu socket type. Which is ideal for the best performance to price processor we have seen for our build, the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz. This processor is currently priced at a competitive $145.99 and really works well with the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB. Our cheapest price recorded for the Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz was $119.99, which we spotted on 16th Mar 2020.

Today the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 competitively costs $49.46, which provides it a place in our build today. 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 Kingdom Hearts III At The Right Price

System Memory is a significant part of any gaming computer. The build today finds the Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz to be the best price to performance RAM solution for our Kingdom Hearts III PC. At last reckoning we priced it up at $32.99, which is a cheap price for this amount of RAM. There are of course other options and configurations of system memory you might like to consider in your build. To provide a bit of system memory pricing insight, we spotted this Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz being sold for a low price of $29.49 on 2nd Feb 2020.

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 85 FPS on High settings in Kingdom Hearts III 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 61.

An Alternative Kingdom Hearts III Graphics Card Option for 1080p
