    Hi Guy's,

    been lurking for a week since I found the web site, I'm very interested in getting into sim racing, used to compete in Kart racing many, years ago, now to old to compete, so figured this might keep me entertained,
    as her indoors, doesn't want me to do a track day in our new AMG.

    Not sure of which way to go regarding pc or ps4, as for pc spec, I'm a bit lost as to what would be required,
    I have found a pc with spec ,

    GeForce GTX 1060 3GB
    1TB Seagate BarraCuda HDD
    300Mbps Built-in Wi-Fi

    not sure if this is good enough, what your thoughts.

    many thanks

    1. definitively PC, if only to be able to drive your AMG, probably available as a mod car, in game.:)
    2. Get a better GPU, since you drive an AMG, you appreciate performance and you should have no problem affording at least a GTX 1080ti.;)

    Hi there,

    The spec should be just fine for most modern racing titles on a single screen at 1440p resolution or lower, at medium to high settings.

    If you are considering 4k res, triple screens, or VR, you would need a better GPU (and better CPU won't hurt either) to run at medium-high settings.

    So I guess it depends on how you plan to race in future. If you haven't already, try VR before making a decision - it's the bees knees, and you may want to consider upping the spec if you're interested in VR.

    Also check out Assetto Corsa Competizione if you're into GT3 - still in early access but it's a next gen racing sim that should also run fine on the above machine (but VR could be borderline).

    EDIT: agree with the above poster - PC is the way to go for racing sims. You will also have a better choice of wheels and accessories compared to console.

    Thanks for your thoughts, I've had a look at the computer shop web site and their listing this, as VR ready, not sure what you mean by GPU, not bothered about 4k, just descent graphics.

    By GPU, I was referring to the GTX 1060 - it will run VR titles, but you'll have to reduce the graphics settings so low in racing sims that you probably will not enjoy the experience.

    If you are interested in VR, I'd also say rather replace the 1060 with a 1080ti at the very least. These are more affordable that the latest 2080 / 2080ti, with comparable VR performance.

    Thanks for your help,
    I think at this point in time, I'll skip the VR for now, and if you think that either of the above configurations will be suitable, I'll start putting kit together, wheel, pedals and rig and screen.

    Hey Kev,

    I can only advise as if I were choosing for myself, and from my experience it has been better to get the highest spec that I could afford at the start (within reason of course), to avoid having to upgrade in the 12-24 months thereafter, in order to run newer titles at decent performance.

    In this context, I think the 2nd system would be a better choice, due to the faster 16GB of RAM ( 8GB on the previous system should be OK, bit 16GB is recommended these days). The CPU is also 5-10% faster according to this :

    I would also consider swapping out the GTX 1060 for a GTX 1070 - reason being is that I have experience with a 1070 and found it to be perfect for 1440p ( if you are planning to get a screen >24inch, 1440p would be recommended over 1080p) and a pretty decent performer if you would like to try VR in future as well.

    So yeah, either system should be fine, but the 2nd system is more future proof in my view, and more capable of delivering good graphics and high fps with an upgraded graphics card.

    I noticed that the supplier allows you to customise the configuration - have a look at the below;

    I replaced the 3200mhz RAM for non- RGB 3000mhz RAM, downgraded the HDD to 1TB, and swapped the 1060 for a MSI 1070.

    Works out to more, but overall I think a better performing system. Can save a further GBP20 if you down grade the case too ( which I would consider doing if you not looking for bling ;))

    also keep an eye out for the new GPU RTX2060 thats coming out next week , its getting better than GTX 1070 TI performance from around a £329 price.
    So it makes sense to go for that over a GTX 1070 as its better performance and newer technology so should last you longer.

    I'm looking to upgrade my GTX 1060 3GB to one of these cards, (for reference my 1060 card will play most sim's at High settings well over 60 FPS @ 1080p, when going to ultra it starts to struggle sometimes, for VR you need to reduce a lot of the settings i.e. no shadows , lower AA , no Supersampling etc... it still usable but I wouldn't recommend someone get it at this point if you think you might go for VR or higher than 1080p resolution.
