What Gaming PC Do We Recommend To Play Far Cry 6?

If you want to play Far Cry 6 around the minimum system requirements at 1080p, we suggest you pick a $1,000 self-build or similar. If you want to push things towards the recommended settings though, particularly on the highest revolutions, then you’ll need to spend around $2,000 or more. Those wanting somewhere in the middle can consider a $1,500 build.

If building your own PC really isn’t your bag, then a pre-build for under $1,000 should see you right for running the game on minimum settings. A $1,500 pre-build will put you on the track for a better playing experience at higher settings, but realistically you will need to spend more than this to enjoy the game on its highest presets.
