Help me learn and build ultimate custom setup

5 posts in this topic

I have a decent PC with liquid cooling dual graphic cards, 32GB RAM, SSDs etc...bit old but still does the job. Also has 3 x 22"monitors

i have steering wheel and pedals, can’t remember what haven't used them in a while. Will be upgrading those.

in an hour of being on the forum I have a basic starting point but want your opinion on building a complete list of everything needed, I mean everything and how to connect and build everything.

 

starting point what I learnt so far.

1. P1-X - or ? (Simx/next level)

2.  3 monitor stand ?

3. Motion ? Simx/nextLevel 3

4. Sim racing gs-5 seat

5. Fanatec wheel and inverted pedals/shifter etc.

not looking for diy build like sfx-100, I am in the USA. Would like to buy kits, I can assemble and bolt together.

recommendations suggestions?

I can easily spare 100" x 60" even a little more if needed

looking for best possible setup long term...
