An Alternative Contraband Police: Prologue 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 GTX 2050 instead, which comes with a 4% worse performance adjustment when compared to Radeon RX 560 4GB, and is certainly a solid video card choice for our build. We selected it while also considering its current price point, it is costing $149.99 at the moment.
