Hello PC Builders!
As we huddle around our GPUs to make the most of their TDP, it’s time to bring some metaphysical warmth to your systems. Welcome to PC Building Simulator 2 update 1.2, in today’s update we’ve got two new parts partners, expanded the green team’s GPU range, and we’re introducing AMD’s latest flagship GPUs.
First though, it’s time to get ourselves connected…
