Hi everyone,

I'm looking to build/buy a PC purely for a racing sim. The games I'll be playing are iRacing and rFactor 2. Both of them are very light on graphic requirements but I would love to drive on high res (1080p or more) at 60+ fps. And won't mind some buffer.

My budget is around Rs 50-70k for the system. Excluding peripherals.

Been out of the PC scene for many years so came here for advice :)

Thanks!

Thanks mate! I'll look these up.

The budget excludes a monitor. Would that change the spec?

Yes. Wheel and display etc. is there. Just need the system.

I looked up laptops but it seems thermal throttling would be an issue. Will stick to PC.

do you already play or just got the wheel? what model is it?

I used to professionally race cars so always been a sim racer. Haven't been in the scene for the past 4 years and preparing for a comeback. Thought sim racing would be the best way to get back in action.

I currently have a G29 which will be upgraded to a Fanatec system after a couple of months. Will be using the sim on a TV.

If it is possible go for VR setup. That will greatly improve the experience.

@bssunilreddy Please suggest a reasonable complete VR Ready racing rig ... Fold-able seat or something..

As much as I love the promise of VR (having tried the best consumer products) it is not very comfortable for regular use. Definitely cannot drive for an extended time on an online race.

I am considering a higher spec for a 3 screen setup. The immersive view is important. Ready to increase the budget. Would the spec below work or we need something higher? I'm definitely not going to drive 3 screens at 4k each but 1080p minimum would be good.

Also, monitor/TV, kb+mouse and UPS budget is separate. Doesn't have to be a part of this spec.

Hey guys,

Quick update. I'm trying a build a PC around these main components which I believe will help me achieve a triple monitor setup.

Ryzen 7 3700X
RTX 2070 Super

32 GB RAM
NZXT Kraken X62 Liquid Cooling

Need to close on mother board. Any good alternatives to the MSI 570 Gaming Pro? I can go slightly higher on the budget for it.

Please don't go with MSI because their RMA is worse.
Better to go with this:https://mdcomputers.in/asus-tuf-gaming-x570-plus-wifi.html
