If you have yet to venture into the new post apocalyptic Russian wasteland, you might want to hold off until you can get your GPU some reinforcements.  An RTX 2060 will let you crank up the settings at 1080p and average around 50fps, while a Vega 64 will almost hit 60fps though without the fancy ray tracing.  If 1440p is your target you are going to want an RTX 2080 if you are going to turn on all the features and still hit 60fps, AMD's offerings can handle this resolution though you many need to turn down some features.   If 4K is your preference, even the mighty RTX 2080 Ti can only manage about 40fps with ray tracing enabled.

Rock, Paper, SHOTGUN is still shopping for a few more cards to add to their suite and an updated machine but they break out their recommendations by GPU which is handy if you have that card.

"Once upon a time, there was an old saying in PC gaming spheres: ‘But will it run Crysis?’ Then the apocalypse happened, and civilisation retreated to the dark tunnels of its underground tube system, the phrase becoming lost and morphed in the intervening years. Now we say in hushed, hallowed tones, ‘But will it run Metro?’"

underground wtih low light, turns out those areas don't make a difference in visuals with RT on or off. But everywhere else RT looks really good, but then again traditional rasterization looks pretty good too, so there's that

Now the bad, just DON"T use DLSS, unless you are really into vaseline. Great video about just how bad the current implementatikon of DLSS really is:

Or you could turn off some settings that you don't really need and happily play the game.
According to the TechSpot GPU benchmark of the game, a 2060 at 1080p on Ultra settings gets 80FPS. A 1060 will get 49FPS.
