Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Dream Engines: Nomad Cities

As Dream Engines: Nomad Cities falls into the , Sandbox, Strategy, Sim genre group, we have chosen to increase the quality of the mouse we are adding to our PC to help better meet the needs of the game. We have opted for the Cooler Master MM710, where this particular mouse is currently today’s best price but a more high performing gamer mouse than some of the other mice we normally choose in our builds.

An Alternative Dream Engines: Nomad Cities 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 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB, which has a 118% better 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 $239.99 at the moment.
