What Gaming PC Do We Recommend To Play Aliens Fireteam Elite?

Aliens Fireteam Elite will run well on a $600 self-build gaming PC if you’re happy playing on the lower settings at 1080p resolution. Higher graphical settings will require something more like a $1,000 self-build gaming PC for 1080p, a $1,500 build for 1440p, and a $2,000 self-build or above for 4K gameplay at decent FPS.

If you don’t want to build your own PC then pre-built gaming PC for $800 will play at 1080p at the lower settings with a respectable frame rate. The highest graphical presets will need a PC at least as powerful as a $1,000 pre-build at 1080p, a $1,500 pre-build for 1440p, or at least a $2,000 pre-build for 4K gaming.
