An Alternative Zombie Army 4: Dead War Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is interested in going with a Nvidia card, like the one we have opted for in this build. So you could try going for the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB instead, which comes with a 7% better performance adjustment when compared to GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $649.99 at the moment.
