The Ultimate Wolfenstein II Gaming PC That Won’t Break the Bank

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is set to launch on PC on October 27. With the release comes anticipation and excitement. If you want them most from your gaming experience, PC gaming is the way to go.

If you don’t have the money for a high-end gaming machine, you’re in the right place. You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars to game in 1080p. In fact, there are many budget gaming PCs that are capable of gaming in 1080p without breaking the bank.

Below you’ll find a budget gaming PC build for merely $600 that can play Wolfenstein II in 1080p with 60 FPS at high settings.

The Build Guide

The CPU
Fortunately, a gaming PC does NOT need the best or most expensive processor. This is because any well optimized game will primarily harness the power of the GPU, as it’s responsible for all of the 3D rendering.

 

As long as the CPU can keep up with the GPU, you don’t need to worry about it so much. This is important to keep in mind when building a budget gaming PC. For this build, the Ryzen 3 1200 was chosen.

 

-Intel saw Ryzen coming a mile away. They gave Pentium CPUs hyperthreading in order to compete with Ryzen 3 CPUs.

-However, Ryzen 3 CPUs are not just multithreaded like Intel Pentium CPUs. They are full on quad-core CPUs.

-It only has half the cache of the Ryzen 5 and 7, but it still has all of the same features.

The Ram
16GB of ram is recommended for the game. However, this is a bit too expensive for the budget. Fortunately, 2400 MHz ram is a viable option. Though we only have 8GB of ram in the build, it is a higher frequency. This will boost in game performance, and help the CPU as well. It also meets the minimum ram requirement. 2×4 GB of G. Skill Ripjaws V 2400 MHz was chosen for the build.

 

Specs:

• Type: 288-pin DIMM
• Speed: DDR4-2400

The Hard Drive

The hard drive chosen for the build is the WD Caviar Blue 1TB 7200 RPM HDD. It has a TB of storage, and it’s one of the most reliable drives on the market. Almost any PC build you find while feature this spectacular hard drive. It has plenty of storage for your games, music, videos, programs, etc.

 

Unfortunately, an SSD was not in the budget for the build. While they’re nice to have, they aren’t necessary for a gaming PC. They don’t affect framerate or graphical performance. However, they do dramatically increase loading times. If you have the extra money, we highly recommend adding an SSD to the build.

The Graphics Card
The most important part of any gaming PC is the GPU. The money saved by leaving out an SSD was used for the GPU. We chose the ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 3GB was chosen.

 

This card does well in all titles, providing a fantastic gaming experience. You’ll achieve 60 FPS in 1080p resolution with nearly all titles, including Wolfenstein II.

The Power Supply
Thanks to the increasing efficiency of computer components, we don’t need an incredibly expensive PSU. For this build, the EVGA 450 watt power supply was chosen. It is 80+ bronze certified so you’ll save some money on electricity costs. The PSU is more than enough to power the build, and it’s relatively cheap too.
