What Gaming PC Do We Recommend To Play Obduction?

Obduction should be fine to play on the lowest settings at 1080p resolution using a $500 self-build PC or a $600 self-build if you’ll be playing it on VR. If you want to turn the settings to the max though, a $1,000 self-build is what you’ll want for 1080p or 1440p resolutions, and a $1,500 self-build PC will be required for 4K gaming.

If building a PC isn’t your bag, one of our pre-builds for under $800 will comfortably run Obduction on the lowest settings at 1080p without much issue. Higher graphical settings will obviously require a more powerful machine though, and you will need something like a $1,000 pre-built PC for 1080p or 1440p gaming and a $1,500 pre-build is recommended for playing at 4K.

From halcyon days playing Sonic 2 on the Megadrive, to trying to work out how to make the 'TOASTY!' man appear on Mortal Kombat 3, many of Aaron’s fondest childhood memories are associated with gaming. He regrets nothing. First getting into PC gaming through exposure to Drug Lord 2.0 and then the original Half Life, he has been a fiend ever since. If you need to know anything about gaming laptops, he's your guy.
