Is your PC ready for Fortnite? Here are some easy upgrades for your PC to meet the minimum requirements.

Upgrading your PC can be a rather daunting process and while games like Fortnite aren't the most graphically intensive resource hogs out there, you'll still need the right equipment if you wish to snag those all-important Victory Royales. Fortunately, HyperX has plenty of top quality PC parts that will give you a competitive edge on the virtual battlegrounds. From reliable RAM, blisteringly fast SSDs, to incredibly accurate mice and keyboards, you'll be able to up your game with any of HyperX's PC parts. Make sure you take a look at the post below to find out what PC upgrades are tailored for improving your Fortnite experience.

HyperX Predator DDR4 RGB.

If you're aiming to keep your Fortnite gameplay running silky smooth, then the HyperX Predator DDR4 is your best friend. Boost your frame rate, keep your gaming sessions looking crisp, and power through your highlight rendering with speeds of up to 4133MHz and low CL12–CL19 latencies. The black heat spreader ensures that your PC stays cool when gaming, so you can say goodbye to any overheating nightmares and focus purely on beating your online opponents. Fortnite requires a minimum of 4GB of RAM to run, but 8GB is the amount recommended to keep things smooth. HyperX Predator DDR4 is available in 4GB–16GB single modules and kits of 2, 4, and 8 with capacities of 8GB–128GB, making it the perfect solution if you're in need of more memory.

Compatibility should be the least of your worries and that's why the Predator DDR4 is Intel XMP-ready and features certified profiles that are optimized for Intel and many of AMD's latest chipsets, so there are plenty of options available – just select the profile and you're ready to go. Each HyperX Predator DDR4 goes through stringent checks and is 100% factory-tested at speed in order to give you the best possible performance in all your Fortnite endeavours. No cables are required, simply plug in and get playing.

Best SSD for Fortnite

While using an HDD to play Fortnite isn't a huge issue, you should use an SSD if you wish to slash through the game's loading times. No one likes having to wait through pesky loading screens and Fortnite can take a while to boot, especially when you have other programs running in the background. Fortnite takes up 32GB of disk space, so you'll have plenty of room if you purchase the HyperX FURY RGB SSD (240GB, 480GB, 960GB). The HyperX FURY RGB SSD offers cutting-edge 3D NAND and a Marvell controller that gives you incredible speeds of 550 MB/s read and 480MB/s write, while the snazzy RGB lighting adds some extra style to your system. Having somewhere reliable to store your Fortnite data and save all your game-winning plays is incredibly important, so if you're looking for an SSD that delivers both performance and style, then consider upgrading to the HyperX FURY.

Best keyboard and mouse for Fortnite

HyperX Alloy Elite RGB.

Both the HyperX Alloy Elite RGB and HyperX Alloy FPS Pro allow you to set up custom keys specifically for Fortnite or you can download our Fortnite profile here. The Alloy Elite lets you customize the color for each of your keys with its easy-to-use HyperX NGenuity software, while The Alloy FPS RGB has a small footprint geared for space-constrained setups, giving you plenty of room to maneuver without having to ramp up your mouse sensitivity. Pair either of these keyboards with the Pulsefire Surge to give your rig even more flare by customizing individual LED colors, mouse DPI, and assign macros before saving them directly to your mouse with HyperX's NGenuity software. Just like the Alloy Elite and FPS Pro, the Pulsefire Surge delivers a reliable and robust performance upgrade that will keep your aim accurate and building quick. With native DPI settings as high as 16,000 DPI, there's enough customization and precision here to satisfy even the most demanding Fortnite players.

Best headset for Fortnite

Using HyperX Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset to Play Fortnite.

A good headset like the HyperX Cloud Alpha or HyperX Cloud Revolver will help you hear enemy footsteps, explosions, and gunshots with cinematic clarity. Both headsets achieve great audio precision, the Cloud Alpha cuts distortion with its unique dual-chamber driver technology while the Cloud Revolver does so with its studio-grade sound stage. This soundstage is highly advantageous when playing games like Fortnite because it allows you to hear sounds farther away, giving you a competitive edge. After all, being able to locate enemies without even seeing them is hugely advantageous. Communication is also key when squading up with your mates, so both the Alpha and Revolver's have a mic that is Discord and TeamSpeak certified, ensuring you have great team communication. If you're tired of enemies getting the jump on you and want a headset you can rely on, then you'll want to purchase a pair of Cloud Alphas or Cloud Revolvers.
