Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Rage 2

As Rage 2 falls into the Shooter, 1st Person genre group, we have chosen to increase the quality of the mouse we are adding to our PC to help better meet the needs of the game.

Rage 2 Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

The Rage 2 is a Shooter, 1st Person genre game and so keeping that in mind we have chosen to improve the quality of headset that we are looking at adding to this build.

There are other options, some cheaper, that you can see by clicking our Headset selection list button above, in the build table.

An Alternative Rage 2 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are wanting a graphics choice from the other team then our suggestion would be the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Asus Dual Advanced 8GB video card, currently priced at $379.99. This option has a performance of 4% worse when compared to the Radeon RX 5700 XT MSI Evoke OC 8GB and completely capable of offering a good gpu alternative.
