An Alternative Occupy Mars: The Game Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a AMD card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Asus Dual Advanced 8GB instead, which comes with a 4% worse performance adjustment when compared to Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $379.99 at the moment.
