Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 18th Aug 2021

If you are asking yourself, what hardware components should I buy for my next PC so it can run Evolve 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 Evolve. With the mission objective being a high gaming standard with top tier graphics options selected, running 1080p as the native screen size. 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 Evolve build.

We will be looking across a range of things to help evaluate this best gamer build. We will be looking across the range of best value for money components based on today’s prices. Something that can influence our peripheral selection is that the game is found in the , Shooter, Online genres, and this can sometimes sway some of the requirements of hardware we choose. Something else to consider is that Evolve would have been built on PC hardware from 2015 and shortly before this period. All interesting points for sure, but what we are really after is that we want to select components that best fit this game type but will also be today’s best value for money hardware of good enough quality to meet the game’s needs.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1080p Evolve PC Build

We want a punchy GPU for this build and the Radeon RX 560 2GB is currently priced at a competitive $99.99. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 and it was priced at $99.99.. This PC graphics hardware selection is a nice price to performance option when looking to run Evolve at 1080p ultra graphics. We expect to see some good FPS from this card at these specs. Over the last few weeks we have noticed it increase its price by $99.99, proving that additional savings can be found you will just need to shop around.

Our ideal build will need to come with either 2GB of VRAM or more than. This is used by the computer to store image data quickly as it passes image information from GPU to CPU. Our selected Radeon RX 560 2GB comes with 2GB of VRAM which should cover image transfer for Evolve at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Evolve 1080p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a cpu is largely dependent on the right motherboard. The CPU we are going to choose has the Socket AM4 socket type. So we have found the best priced and well featured mobo in the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4. The Ryzen 3 3200G processor will then fit in and accompany our Radeon RX 560 2GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $193.74. A low end price for this CPU would be $83.59, which we saw it priced at on 17th Jun 2020.

Chosen for price point, socket type and feature list, the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 has a cost today of $59.99. To provide a motherboard pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 is $51.88 on 18th Feb 2021.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Evolve At The Right Price

The Evolve PC we are building will want some supporting RAM to help our CPU and GPU selections to deliver the right FPS. We are still focusing on achieving 1080p ultra and so the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz which we have found for $42.99 is among the best price system memory at the moment. To provide a RAM pricing benchmark the lowest recorded price we have for the Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz is $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Evolve

Now on to the frame rates for our Evolve running on Radeon RX 560 2GB at 1080p. We should see an average of 86 FPS on High settings or you could push up the quality to Ultra, which would get us 62 FPS.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect Evolve would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 47 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 1440p graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 66 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

While we have put a great PC build together for Evolve it’s important to understand how it handles some of the more popular games of today at 1080p. With this PC build we can expect that the popular game Days Gone will get 62FPS on Ultra settings raising to 86FPS on High. On the other hand we see that Back 4 Blood returns 62FPS on Ultra and 86FPS when lowered to High. Lastly FIFA 22 may see 62 FPS running at Ultra, and 86 on High graphics settings.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Evolve

We have opted for the Cooler Master MM710 because we feel it is a higher performance gaming mouse that will meet the needs of this title. When looking at a mouse for a game that sits in the , Shooter, Online game grouping we often consider paying a little bit more to get a better suited peripheral for the task. We have still chosen the best priced mouse we could find today that meets this need.

Evolve Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

Finding a headset for a game that has been identified within the following genre groups, , Shooter, Online, has given us reason to improve the quality of headset we are looking at adding into this build.. The best quality headset that also comes with the best price tag is the Logitech G635 7.1, which provides some great gaming audio. You can review some of the other headsets above, in our curated headset drop down list if you are wanting cheaper or perhaps even higher quality.

An Alternative Evolve Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Why not switch out the graphics card in this build and replace it with a similarly powerful card from Nvidia. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050 graphics card has a 1% worse performance variation compared to the currently chosen video card. As the best price point for an alternative manufacturer in this range it currently costs $149.99.
