If you plan to acquire the video game Dying Light recently released on PC, it turns out that our colleagues from Guru3D have carried out a test to determine the graphics cards that will allow you to make the most of this new Survival-Horror title where you have to screw up the zombie all the time. Not less than 28 AMD and Nvidia models have been tested with the definitions 1600 x 1200 pixels, 1920 x 1080 pixels and 2560 x 1440 pixels.
It thus appears that the Radeon R9 270X (from 150 euros) and GeForce GTX 660 (from 150 euros) will be similar to the union minimum to play in good conditions in 1600 x 1200 pixels, because they will cross the symbolic bar of 40 frames per second, threshold beyond which an action game can be considered as fluid.

It also appears that we will have to turn to the Radeon R9 285 (from 210 euros) and GeForce GTX 760 (from 200 euros) to guarantee good fluidity in 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. It is finally obvious that the big GeForce GTX 780 (from 360 euros) and Radeon R9 290 (from 240 euros) will not be a luxury for those who plan to play in a definition 2,560 x 1,440 pixels.
