An Alternative Train Sim World 2 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Perhaps you are after a AMD graphics card rather than the one we have added to this build. If so we would suggest the similar performing Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, which has a 7% 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 $899.98 at the moment.
