Products featured in the Video
Here is the Overclockers list of the best products for playing Doom and creating a Set up worthy of the deadliest Demon slayer.
The BFG Nightmare PC
- Ryzen 7 3700X
- Asus ROG Strix OC RTX 2080Ti
- Black and red colouration with RGB lighting
- Priced at £2699.99
Takes its name from the infamous DOOM weapon and the graphical settings it’s built to run. There is a choice of PC cases available but the system by default is built in the Raiijintek Zofos Evo. It’s black and red with plenty of RGB lighting which is set to match. The CPU and GPU are straight off the Bethesda spec list with an AIO cooled Ryzen 7 3700X and one of the fastest RTX 2080Ti’s available the Asus ROG Strix OC. You’ll also find the all-important 16GB of RAM installed as standard but there is the option to upgrade to 32GB. AMD’s latest processors support superfast GEN4 NVMe drives and the Corsair MP600 in this system means loading screens will virtually disappear. The 1TB capacity provides plenty of space for DOOM eternal and any other games in your library. For even more storage the BFG also comes equipped with a 1TB SATA SSD. All this hardware comes in at £2699.99 But it means you can enjoy DOOM in all its glory at high resolutions with plenty of FPS.
The Ballista PC
- Ryzen 5 3600
- RX 5500XT
- A free copy of Doom Eternal included!
- Budget-friendly at £859.99
The Ballista is an excellent option if you’re on a tighter budget with a price tag of £859.99 and you even get a copy of DOOM Eternal to go along with it. The Ryzen 5 3600 and RX 5500XT will be capable of 1080p, 60 FPS gameplay and the 16GB of RAM is above what DOOM recommends for high settings. Storage requirements are covered with a 250GB Team Group SSD and 1TB Seagate Barracuda. All the components are assembled inside the Kolink VOID and the styling matches the DOOM theme rather well.
Doom themed PC Components
A prebuilt PC isn’t for everyone and if you have the know-how you might want to build your own or update your current system.
Gigabyte Aorus RTX 2080TI Xtreme
- Super high boost clock: 1770MHz
- Aggressive cooler design and RGB lighting to match Doom aesthetic
- 4 Years warranty
- Capable of powering Ultra-nightmare Graphical settings
The heart of any gaming PC is the graphics card and If you’re looking to play Doom on its Ultra-Nightmare graphical settings for the best experience possible while cutting your way through those pesky demons you’re going to need a hugely powerful GPU. The RTX 2080Ti is the best money can buy when it comes to gaming and the AORUS GEFORCE XTREME is one of the fastest with a Boost Clock speed of 1770MHz. It also happens to match the aesthetics of Doom perfectly with its aggressive cooler design and bright RGB lighting which you can set to Orange or Red for that authentic hell on earth aesthetic.
Powercolour Red devil RX 5700XT
- Advanced triple-fan cooler
- Red devil design resembles Doom demons
- Great price at £389.99
- Capable of powering 1080p,60fps gameplay
If the thought of spending over £1000 on a GPU is giving you Ultra-nightmares. It’s still possible to get a great experience on DOOM with an awesome bang for buck GPU. It might not be listed on the Spec list but the RX 5700XT will easily handle 1080p 60fps gameplay. If you’re not sure which model to go for, I suggest the Powercolor Red devil at £389.99. The black and red coloration scream DOOM and the red devil logo that resembles a Baron of hell demon is just too perfect.
LG 27” 1440P 27GL850-B Monitor
- 144hz refresh rate
- 2560x1440p resolution
- Nano IPS display with 1ms response time
- G-Sync and Freesync compatible
If you’re investing in a beastly PC or planning on a huge upgrade to play DOOM it’s likely you’ll be pushing out plenty of FPS even at high resolutions. Unfortunately, even a 2080Ti isn’t quite powerful enough for 4K, 144hz gameplay but there is a good compromise that is a real sweet spot for the fast-paced gameplay Doom provides. The LG 27gl850 is an Overclockers exclusive and if you’re a Linus tech tips fan you might recall it being named “the best monitor of 2019”. The 1440p resolution and 144hz refresh rate is a beautiful balance between eye candy and performance and the other specs tick pretty much every box. The Nano IPS display has all the benefits of IPS with bright immersive colours but none of the drawbacks thanks to the 1ms response time that ensures blur and ghosting is non-existent. G-sync and Freesync compatibility help to eliminate screen tearing and stuttering. The stand design completes the package with thin bezels and complete adjustability.
Phanteks Eclipse P400s
- Noise dampening for more silent operation
- Black and red design matches Doom theme
- Midi-Tower size
- Available for £83.99
The Eclipse P400s is a great budget case from Phanteks and it just so happens to be available in Black with striking red accents which is the perfect colour for any DOOM themed system. The noise dampening material keeps everything quiet so you can focus on gaming. There are plenty of options for cooling & I figured if you’re going to be battling Demons in a burning, glowing inferno you’re probably going to want all the cooling you can get.
Endgame Gear XM1 Gaming mouse
- Pixart's flagship PMW3389 sensor
- Lightweight chassis perfect for FPS
- Mechanical OMRON 50M switches
- Available for £53.99
The best way to play DOOM is with a keyboard and mouse and if you want your aim to be top-notch a good mouse is a must-have. The Endgame gear XM1 has won multiple awards for its performance and features and the lightweight chassis with high-end sensor make it perfect for FPS gameplay.
Ducky Mech Mini 60% RGB keyboard
- Cherry MX Red mechanical switches
- Strong full aluminum frame
- 60% size frees up desk space
- Available for £125.99
If you mostly use your PC to play games then you probably don’t use most of the keys on a standard keyboard. A 60% board is the perfect way to get a little more desk space for mouse movement which is going to be very important when you consider the fast-paced, high action Gameplay DOOM provides. The ducky Mecha mini comes with linear Cherry Mx mechanical switches which are perfect for gaming and the PBT keycaps and high-quality construction mean it’s built to last. The keycaps and chassis are all black so it works with the Doom theme and the RGB lighting can be changed to match.
Noblechairs Hero Gaming Chair
- Doom colours thanks to Black design red stitching
- Adjustable Lumbar support
- Ergonomic design for ultimate comfort
- Available for £349.99
With DOOM Eternals storyline twice as long as 2016 DOOM you’re going to be spending a lot more time sat at your PC and that’s before you jump into the all-new battle mode multiplayer. And just because you’re battling demons from Hell that doesn’t mean you can’t do it in comfort. The noblechairs Hero has won multiple awards and it just so happens to come in a DOOMesque black and red option that fits perfectly with the other hardware we’ve picked out.
