    Making the switch from XBox.

    Hello everyone,

    I think I'm going to make the switch to PC, but I need some help first. Mainly in picking a suitable PC. I've been doing lots of research over the last couple weeks both here and elsewhere, but I just seem to be confusing myself further. It's been years since I've researched PC's and their components, and at that time I was only ensuring it'd run Photoshop/Lightroom smoothly, which was mainly having enough RAM.

    From my research it seems that the most important considerations for Sim Racing games are processor and GPU. Coincidentally, these are also the main components that make my head spin

    So, what I want from the PC:
    • It will only be used for gaming.
    • I want to play in VR. *Not going for VR anymore*
    • I want to be able to record on track footage.
    • I want things to run smoothly.
    • I want something that will give me 2-3 years of gaming before I need to upgrade parts (if that's possible).


    What's not important to me:
    • I'm OK with not running games at 100% of their graphic capabilities.
    • 4K. I don't have any 4K displays and no plans to acquire any. 1080 is fine by me.


    Ideally I'd like to purchase a pre-built system as PC stuff isn't my strong point, but I do have enough technical skills to assemble the rig if the savings are great enough. If possible I'd like to keep the system at or under $1000 CAD, but I'm not sure if that's a realistic goal In terms of a system that will support VR, is there much difference in price to one that won't but will still run the game fine?

    Thanks in advance for any help!
