If you are asking yourself, what hardware components should I buy for my next PC so it can run Ghost Stories 2 then that is exactly what we will be doing in this review. Our challenge is in choosing the right priced PC items to get together an optimum build, which can meet the needs of Ghost Stories 2. With the PC build brief being to maintain a stable and reliable FPS with ultra settings selected, getting its visuals from a 1080p resolution monitor screen. The hardware selection should give us all a good jumping off point when considering what might prove a good build and price for a PC to run Ghost Stories 2. We will update prices here as they change and switch out components as new, better hardware is released.

Let’s consider some of the interesting characteristics about this game, to help us build something that matches the sort of game we are considering to build a PC for. As we know it comes under the , Action, Adventure 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 2020 and around that period and the devs themselves probably had hardware comparable to some of the latest hardware of that period. In terms of its relative hardware demanding position, it is considered by us as 1 placed game on our most demanding games of today list at least at the moment, although that list shifts regularly. Obviously these points help give us a better picture of what we may want in the build, but they are only supporting us because when we choose, it is the best priced components that will find their way into this build today.

An Alternative Ghost Stories 2 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

Not everyone is a fan of team AMD, so if you are after a GPU from the other side then perhaps take a look at our suggested Nvidia card, the GeForce GTX 2050. It is placed at 4% worse performance difference and certainly capable of delivering up Ghost Stories 2 frames on a par with our primary GPU selection. We have also selected it based on its price today, which finds it at $149.99.
