I just built a pair of new PCs for myself and my wife.

My new PC: Ryzen R7-3700X, 16 GB DDR4-3200c14, RX 5700, 1 TB SSD, and 2TB HDDs and 4TB HDD, with a 1440p 95 HZ screen.

Wife's new PC: Ryzen R5-2600, 16 GB DDR4-3000c15, GTX 1660, 512 TB SSD, 1 TB SSHD, 1 TB HD, 1080p 60 Hz screen (and can optionally add a 1600x900 Second screen, but probably won't)

I'm looking for game suggestions that will exercise the muscle for these machines.

Neither of us are FPS-type players.

She prefers puzzle solving games, RPGs (turn based preferably, or pause-and-execute commands), hidden objects and the like. I have bought her a copy of the recent Call of Cthulhu

I tend to like slower-moving shooters (Like World Of Tanks/Warships), RPGs, and older MMOs,

Skyrim
Astroneer
No Man's Sky
Kerbal Space Program
.....all open world space games except Skyrim

Portal
Portal 2
Slay the Spire
Ascension
The Talos Principal
.....all puzzle games

....although the only one that I think will really push your system is Skyrim....but I think they are all good games....except No Man's Sky can drag....and Astroneer I've only played a short time.
