When putting this sort of PC together we want great value for money but a machine that can deliver solid FPS on Gears of War 4 at 1080p ultra graphics. We have selected the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB today as a well placed option.

We have seen this card drop its price recently by $47.68 which is part of the reason it has been slotted in to this build.

4GB of VRAM is needed by Gears of War 4. This memory acts as a super fast image storage buffer between GPU and CPU and our selected GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB comes with 6GB of VRAM. This should be a suitable amount for our PC at this gaming resolution.
