What Gaming PC Do We Recommend To Play Hades?

Hades will play with solid FPS on one of our $500 self-builds at 1080p, assuming you don’t mind turning the graphical presets as low as they will go. If you want to play on the higher graphical settings however then we’d recommend a $1,000 self-build or similar for 1080p or 1440p and a $1,500 build if you want to run it on 4K resolution.

If you don’t fancy the idea of building your own PC, then a pre-build for under $800 will play Hades on the lowest settings at 1080p without any issues. Higher graphical settings will need something more like a $1,000 pre-built PC, or a $1,500 pre-build if you want to play at 4K.
