What Gaming PC Do We Recommend To Play Psychonauts 2?
To get Psychonauts 2 running on the lowest settings at 1080p resolution, have a look at one of our $500 or $600 self-builds. If you want to turn up the resolution and graphics to the max, however, then a $1,500 build or higher is advisable.
If the idea of constructing your own computer doesn’t appeal and you would rather go with a pre-built option, one of our under $800 PCs will do to running Psychonauts 2 on the lower settings at 1080p. For the higher settings and resolutions however you will need something at least as powerful as our $1,500 pre-built PC.
