But obviously in this specific PC build we want to ensure enough we choose something with enough performance capability to run The Evil Within at 1080p ultra graphics options. We have taken a look at a whole bunch of graphics card prices today and compared them to the hardware’s gaming performance and our choice for this game is the GeForce GTX 1650 EVGA XC Ultra Black Gaming 4GB.
