Gamers can enjoy Fortnite for as little as $300, which will run the game smoothly at lower to medium settings, with 40 to 50 frames per second.
Fortnite has taken the gaming world by storm, offering addictive gameplay, both in battle royale and in the co-operation sandbox survival mode. While it is not the most demanding game out there, it is for some players who are trying to run the game on an older laptop or desktop. However, their system just would not be able to smoothly run the game, and they will need an upgrade to a higher-end computer that will run the game without problems.
The minimum system requirements for a laptop or personal computer (PC) to run Fortnite is an Intel Core i3 central processing unit (CPU), an Intel HD 4000 graphics processing unit (GPU), 4 Gigabytes (GB) of memory (RAM) and a Windows 7/8/9 64-bit or Mac OSX operating system.
A gaming computer that can run Fortnite on lower to medium settings is approximately $300, with 40 to 50 frames per second on a budget friendly 1080 pixels monitor. This entry-level Fortnite gaming PC comes with an AMD Ryzen 3 3200G APU, that comes with integrated Radeon Vega 8 graphics. The PC also features a 240GB solid-state drive (SSD) 8GB of RAM, a decent budget-friendly case as well as 650W power supply, that is powerful enough to manage an upgrade to a mid-range graphics card.
However, a gamer with a slightly bigger budget can get a more powerful PC build. For $500, gamers will be able to run Fortnite on higher settings, for instance, on a 1080p monitor at a high framerate. The build features a six-core Ryzen 5 2600 processor and an RX 5500 XT 4G graphics card. It also comes with 8GB of memory, a 480GB SSD, a 650W power supply, and a micro-ATX case,
Gamers who have more to spend on their system can get a good gaming computer that will run basically any game on a 1080P monitor. The computer features a RX 5600 XT 8G graphics card, six-core AMD Ryzen 6 2600 processor, 16GB of DDR4 3200MHz memory, 650W power supply, and a 480GB SSD for $700.
It is thus clear that gamers do not need to have a massive budget, or have the most expensive system, in order to smoothly run Fortnite.
