Optimal Hardware Suggestions

Historically, wrestling games aren’t exactly the most visually appealing, and WWE 2K20 follows suit. Consequently, the requirements are pretty tame by modern standards, and for most gaming rig owners, running the game shouldn’t pose too many hurdles. It has to be said that the game has a reputation for some pretty glaring glitches and bugs, so be prepared for the occasional problem, but rest assured it’s the game and not your machine. 

The minimum requirements grant 30 FPS at 720p with the settings on low to medium. You can up the frame rate by going full low with the settings, but don’t expect anything above 40 FPS as a best-case scenario.

As for the recommended system requirements, the FPS jumps to 60 with 1080p and settings on high, possibly even ultra with the right arrangement of in-game graphical settings. An NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970, or AMD equivalent, is on the lower scale of the GPU demands scale, so even an older PC should be okay as long as the CPU is up to the task.

What Gaming PC Do We Recommend?

We recommend our $500 build for WWE 2K20. The main reason for this is that you really need a dedicated GPU to get the best out of the game. An integrated one just won’t cut it if you are looking for respectable performance. 

Alongside, we’ve hand-picked some choice components that bridge the gap between affordability and performance, so you aren’t breaking the bank for a powerful build that can perform well when running other recent titles. You also get 16 GB of RAM, which is way above the 8 GB needs of WWE 2K20.
