An Alternative Layers of Fear: Inheritance Graphics Card Option for 1440p

Perhaps you are after a Nvidia graphics card rather than the one we have added to this build. If so we would suggest the similar performing GeForce GTX 2050 Ti 4GB, which has a 8% worse performance variation, but is still a suitable video card choice for this game. We have also considered the best value for performance based on today’s prices, with it costing $139.99 at the moment.
