Our graphics card will need 4GB of VRAM built into it to act as a suitable buffer between our video card and chosen CPU. This graphics card has 6GB which will be plenty for this game at this resolution.

Other Popular Game 1080p Ultra Custom PC Builds

We expect It Takes Two would also run in higher screen resolutions but this would be 48 FPS average, at 1440p Ultra. We would see an improvement of frame rates if we tweaked the 1440p graphics options to be around the High preset graphics option, which would then return 67 FPS.

How this build performs for other popular games

We should check some other games performance with our It Takes Two PC. Looking at some other popular games today, to see how the GeForce GTX 1660 Super Asus Dual Evo OC 6GB and this setup will run on 1080p. Back 4 Blood is expected to return 63 FPS when run on Ultra which increases to around 88 frames per second on High. Grand Theft Auto VI would return 63 FPS on Ultra and then go up to 88 FPS at High settings. With Far Cry 6 we expect 63 FPS running at Ultra settings and 88 frames on High settings.
