It's official: Fortnite is the new king of battle royale. With over 3.4 million concurrent players, Fortnite tops PUBG, H1Z1, and the rest of the royales. To celebrate we're hosting a very special Best PC Builds Competition for a budget Fortnite Gaming PC. It doesn't take much to run Fortnite:
Minimum System Requirements:
■Intel HD 4000
■Core i3 2.4 Ghz
■4 GB RAM
■Windows 7/8/10 64-bit + Mac OSX Sierra
■Nvidia GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870 equivalent DX11 GPU
■2 GB VRAM
■Core i5 2.8 Ghz
■8 GB RAM
■Windows 7/8/10 64-bit
Given the current climate for the PC building industry, that's a good thing. You'd be hard pressed to find let alone purchase anything faster than a 1050 Ti, which is why were limiting this edition of PC Builds to a budget of $500 or less. That doesn't mean $500 is a hard and fast rule. While you can't go over that budget, you can go under. We're looking for the best performing builds at the greatest value, so builds that come in at a budget of $400 or less will get bonus points when under consideration.
To sweeten the deal we're running a concurrent giveaway for Fortnite Battle Royale Limited Edition. The Limited edition has everything you need to get started playing Fortnite, including tons of goodies like 2 exclusive legendary heroes, 1 exclusive legendary weapon, 2 extra copies of the Standard Edition for your friends, an exclusive founder's chat channel, and much more. On top of this grand prize, two runner up winners will each win a $50 Steam Gift Card. Each submission to the Best PC Builds competition grants one extra entry into the giveaway, so what are you waiting for?
May the Best PC Build win!
