DOOM Eternal is an FPS game developed by id Software and published by Bethesda Softworks. It was released on 20th of March 2020. For you to truly enjoy the game I compiled a list of the best gaming PCs for DOOM Eternal so it would run smoothly without any graphic stuttering. Even on maximum video settings in 4K resolution.

Being able to do so, the gaming PC must at least meet the recommended system requirement:

Estimated DOOM Eternal System Requirements

What computer parts are the most important for running DOOM Eternal smoothly?

Graphics Card

A graphics card (or GPU, short of “Graphics Processing Unit”) is undoubtedly one of the most important hardware parts of a gaming PC. It handles all the processing and rendering of what you see on the display and directly affects the quality of the textures, anti-aliasing, frame rate, and such…

The more powerful it is, the more smoothly and realistically the game runs.

CPU

A processor or CPU (short for “Central Processing Unit”) also significantly impacts the overall gaming performance. It handles all the gameplay, instructions, loading different assets of the game, etc.

It basically calculates all the logic behind the scene.

Memory

Computer memory or RAM (short for “Random Access Memory”) stores all the short-term bits of information that are being accessed and used by the CPU constantly. It is a kind of temporary storage for all the calculated results coming from the CPU.

The more RAM you have the more information the processor can store in it simultaneously.

Storage

This is a piece of computer hardware that contains all the data that the PC can access and operate with. It includes everything, from the operating system to the games installed.

The most common consumer class types of SDDs are SATA SSD or NVMe. Although using different bus interfaces and having different connections, the main difference between them is read/write speed. Here’s a little speed comparison about average read/write speed of all the disk drives types mentioned:

    • SATA 3 – up to 550MB/second 
    • NVMe – up to 3500MB/second

Traditional HDDs can be used for secondary storage drive only. They are just obsolete.

What is the Best Gaming Desktop PC for DOOM Eternal?

The recommended GPU is astimated to be “Nvidia GTX 980 6GB” but I recommend you go for at least the GTX 1660 Ti.
Considering the CPU, they all have a better processor than the recommended Ryzen 5 2600 or Intel Core i7-4770. So this is nothing to worry about.

All the gaming computers listed here also have at least one system SSD drive. As mentioned, traditional HDDs are becoming obsolete. They are just slow and unreliable nowadays and can only be served as a second disk for storage space. Not for your system partition.
