Plan the Best Rocket League PC Build

Required Hardware Components for 60FPS, 144FPS, or 240FPS (1080p)



Last Updated: August 6, 2020

Planning a PC Build for Rocket League to get smooth 60FPS, 144FPS, or 240FPS performance. Whether you plan to use a 60Hz, 144Hz, or 240Hz monitor, this guide will explain which hardware components you need to achieve your desired performance.

Rocket League is a PC soccer game with a unique twist; players on each team are in rocket-powered cars. Sounds cool, and it is; it's become a super successful title, with a thriving competitive scene with no end in sight.

Is Rocket League Demanding on Hardware?

The great news is Rocket League is very accessible, or in other words, it's not very demanding and doesn’t require powerful PC hardware to run nice and smoothly. Its well-optimized nature also means it's not going to be too hard to reach high frame rates of 100-144FPS or higher, which is ideal as we do recommend getting a 144Hz screen if you have the money for it as it’ll make the game smoother (can help for competitive play; all pros use a 144Hz screen).

That said, a standard 60Hz monitor is just fine for casual players, as getting 60FPS (not hard) for one of those screens is still a nicely smooth experience. Let's get into the parts you'll need for the performance level you seek; specifically, we'll list what CPU, GPU (graphics card) and RAM (memory) you'll require for 60FPS or 144FPS (low or ultra settings).
