Call of Duty: Ghosts 2 1080p Ultra Custom PC Build Review

Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 17th Jan 2021

Our objective here is to enable us to explore what PC we could buy that can play Call of Duty: Ghosts 2, where we carefully find the right hardware components that can run Call of Duty: Ghosts 2 and meet its gaming needs while also heavily factoring in today’s best hardware component prices. We are going to choose these parts with the aim of keeping a high FPS rate with the highest ultra graphics, viewed through a 1080p monitor resolution. These hardware items found in our build will continue to have their prices checked and components will be swapped in and out as we feel better hardware for our build is released.

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. Call of Duty: Ghosts 2 is a title which sits in the Shooter, Online, 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 0000 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 not currently in our top most demanding games list and currently not figuring in our more 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.

Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Call of Duty: Ghosts 2

We have found a great quality and still well priced gaming mouse today with the Cooler Master MM710. A game like Call of Duty: Ghosts 2 that has Shooter, Online, Action genre, we felt it necessary to increase the quality of the mouse we would consider because the game has some additional needs that can benefit from this type of higher specced mouse.

An Alternative Call of Duty: Ghosts 2 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a AMD card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050 instead, which comes with a 1% worse performance adjustment when compared to Radeon RX 560 2GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $149.99 at the moment.
