Now is a shitty time to be trying to get into a gaming PC... For something that works well you are going to need to either get lucky finding a GPU or buy a prebuilt with a decent card ($1500 - $2000)I've been looking at sim racing, but i've always been a mac person. how much do you think it would take to get a halfway decent wheel, cockpit, pc, & tv? 2k? 3k?
Interested in formula 1 stuff but open to others
A little earlier today I was trying to look up info about using a curved projector setup, and failing that maybe copying the triple large TV panelsNow is a shitty time to be trying to get into a gaming PC...

A decent wheel/base and pedals are going to set you back at least $500, but I would just buy once cry once and get something a little better for around $1000, cockpit can be anywhere from a couple hundred to a grand or even more if you get crazy, if you are serious about wanting to get into it then I would suggest running a triple monitor setup, you can either do 27's or 32's, if you aren't quite sure you want to go that crazy you could try one of the 49" ultrawides.
For the wheel/base/pedals I would either get Fanatec or Thrustmaster
For a cockpit/monitor stand I have GT Omega and Trak Racer with triple 32's
For a PC something like one of these would be perfect:
I've probably got around $10k in my setup, but I use it every single day and enjoy the hell out of it... Also when I'm not racing I have it mining which currently makes about $7 a day or a little over $2500 a year...

That's how I ended up with 32s also.I wouldn't want to use that much space, but for me triple 32's is the sweet spot, I tried 27's, and while they did work, I just wasn't happy with them...
Hmmm, I'm quite happy with my placement. I've got the center monitor about half an inch above the DD1 and about 3.25" back from the front of it. Would lowering your seat help you any?That's how I ended up with 32s also.
The PPI is a low but more than anything else I just wish I could raise the wheel 3-4" higher or lower the screens... But I'd have to push the monitors back ~12" to do so because of the length of the DD1. This has irked me for about a year now.
Yup, and if you get over 4.0 you will auto promote to A... I don't even care about skill level anymore, it's the iRating that tells the real story...Okay hear me out.
I was a C license.
Last week I raced a C series all week and dragged my SR back up and over 4... Got promoted to B license.
The promotion puts me right at a B 3.45...
I went and ran 4 B series time trials...
If I don't touch anything then in a week and a half I should get promoted to A, right?
Also, btw, this is why I think the Licenses should not be considered a way to denote skill levels
Yeah my irating took a hit because I was flat out avoiding battles and waving people by left and right. I'm down to 1300 atmYup, and if you get over 4.0 you will auto promote to A... I don't even care about skill level anymore, it's the iRating that tells the real story...
