As we know it comes under the Action, Adventure, Fighting genre style categories, which may well influence some of our peripheral selections, ensuring we consider the specifics for the games requirements. Looking at its development the game was built during 2018 and around that period and the devs themselves probably had hardware comparable to some of the latest hardware of that period.

Having the option of larger screen resolutions in the future is a handy thing to consider. This gaming PC setup, running Runes: The Forgotten Path at 1440p would be pulling in about 67 FPS at High. We would expect that to drop again to 48 if you were playing it at 1440p Ultra.

An Alternative Runes: The Forgotten Path Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is a fan of team Nvidia, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested AMD card, the Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB. It is placed at 7% better performance difference and certainly capable of delivering up Runes: The Forgotten Path frames on a par with our primary GPU selection. We have also selected it based on its price today, which finds it at $579.99.
