Fortnite is such a particular game that it needs hardware that at first we might think is unbalanced for any other game on the market. And that is precisely what makes many users hesitate and choose the PC components poorly, usually spending more than necessary, so for this reason we are going to recommend the best PC to play Fortnite in epic quality. Ready? So let’s go.
It’s not that this title is very demanding as such, there are infinitely more consumers of hardware resources, but you need a well-balanced PC to avoid problems. Here more is not better, at least in many areas, so it will be interesting to see what we can mount and especially for how much money.
What requirements does Fortnite on PC ask for such epic quality?
Well, they are quite brief and affordable, but they are not close to the reality that the game faces when we are playing it, at least not for resolutions beyond 1080p and 60 FPS as such.
The requirements of Fortnite for PC are these:
- Graphics Card: Nvidia GTX 1080, AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT or equivalent GPU
- Graphics memory: 4 GB VRAM or higher
- Processor: Intel Core i7-8700, AMD Ryzen 7 3700x or equivalent
- Memory: 16GB RAM or higher
- Hard Drive: NVMe Solid State Drive
- OS: Windows 10 64-bit
As we can see, everything is very unbalanced and, above all, outdated, so we are going to put a more current and, above all, faster PC on the table.
Intel Core 12100F
It is the cheap and simple option, for all audiences and with more than decent performance. In fact, it far exceeds the two options that EPIC gives us despite having two fewer cores and thus 4 fewer execution threads to its credit. It has no E-Cores, which means it’s a pure traditional-style processor with only P-Cores , which will go up to a maximum frequency of 4.3 GHz .
It does not have an integrated graphics card, so to play we will logically need a GPU. If this processor falls short because in addition to playing we perform intensive tasks such as rendering or streaming, we can opt for its older brother i5-12400F, much faster in these sections and only a little faster in gaming.

ASUS TUF Gaming B660-PLUS WIFI D4
We are going for a more than capable motherboard with the current mid-range chipset that lacks nothing and above all, we have DDR4 and not the current expensive DDR5. For Fortnite this motherboard is more than enough, but we have selected this model for its durability and general quality, because in motherboards you always have to go a little further if your pocket allows it.
It contains an HDMI and DisplayPort that in this case will not be useful to us because we do not have iGPU. What we do have is three USB 3.2 Gen 1, one USB 3.2 Gen 2 type A and one more type C, Wi-Fi 6, Realtek 7.1 sound, DDR4-5333 MHz memory support and two 3-pin lighting connectors among others. many general features.
A more than interesting model for an adjusted price with which we will not lack anything and we will be able to get the most out of this CPU even in its unlocked power mode that will increase its performance.

CORSAIR Vengeance RGB PRO 2 x 8GB DDR4-3200MHz C16
We have talked about these memories so many times that there is not much to say about their characteristics as such. What we will emphasize is that we have not selected the 3,600 MHz modules because we intend to stay within the official BMI limit, but these faster memories could be installed in most processors, managing to scratch some FPS.
At the same time we also warn that it could lead to touch voltages to stabilize them, since it depends on the quality of the IMC they will support said speed without problems or with manual adjustments.
ASUS RTX 3060 Ti V2 OC
Here comes the most controversial section of all without a doubt, mainly because the prices still do not accompany. Fortnite is not a game that demands a lot from the PC, but it does from the graphics card and for that reason we have to pay for it.
This RTX 3060 Ti is the most optimal in the price/performance ratio, since it is faster than the GPUs that EPIC asks for, it has the same 8 GB VRAM but faster, the dissipation system is very competitive and it works silently and consumption does not skyrocket.

CORSAIR MP600 PRO LPX
It is a new generation SSD within the MP600 range of the famous manufacturer where its main quality is precisely the speed it integrates with 7,100 MB/s in reading and 6,800 MB in sequential writing.
It is the 500 GB version that we consider sufficient and the best in performance/capacity/price, but you can opt for the 1 TB or even 2 TB version if you need more available space, we will pay more nonetheless.
|PCIe Gen 4.0|
We continue with CORSAIR as the TOP manufacturer that it is and in power supplies it was not going to be less. This PSU obtains 80 PLUS GOLD certification, which, without being a guarantee of higher quality, is a guarantee of efficiency and therefore we already have that assured.
It is a totally modular model that responds to a power of 750 watts that will allow us not only to achieve the maximum degree of said energy efficiency with the consequent saving of electricity at home, but also we will be prepared for graphics cards of higher ranges, as long as their consumption don’t go over 450 watts, so there’s room.

CORSAIR CARBIDE 275R
It is a chassis that is at an incredible price and that we cannot pass up because although it is a very sober box without RGB, it includes two SP120 fans and better quality than its rivals for the same price.
It is a medium-sized tower, quite compact but with good cooling that can be easily upgraded and will quickly appreciate the temperature of your components. Its window is made of tempered glass , its design is minimalist , clean, assembly is simple thanks to its perfectly prepared holes, it has cable routing and extensive expansion options.
For this price it is if not the best in its segment, it is in the top 3 without a doubt. There is an Airflow version with a mesh front that improves cooling even more, but the price goes up quite a bit, as well as a white version that is also a little more expensive.

And so far the PC that we have designed for Fortnite, very complete and within what we can expect as the best performance to play it from 1080p to 4K.
