Latest version of sim rig that I've been cobbling together for about 7 years. I'm thinking about simvibe and/or motion simulator next.

Nixim Racecraft GT Cockpit, c/w uprated castors Very Happy
Cobra Daytona seat (reclines which is nice)
Fanatec Clubsport Wheel base with BMW and Formula RIM
Fanatec Clubsport V1 pedals
SRH Dash with SLI-Pro
SST Lightning H-shifter
3x 24" Dell 2408WFP monitors @ 5760 x 1200
Ergotech triple monitor stand
i5-3570K@3.4GHz, 16G RAM, GTX 670
Astro A50 headset (waste of money)

Looks awesome fella!

Ive got an old intel quad pc with a nice graphics card connected up to the surround system and big tv in the livingroom, screens a little far away for proper immersion but I can live with that. The next thing is really to sort out the driving position, the sofa is FAR from ok!

You are welcome anytime AK, at least my gearbox will be safe! Razz

Alisitair, this set-up doesn't make me any quicker unfortunately, but it's the immersion I'm after really. It's still feels naff all like driving a real car round a track though. Mind you I get exactly the same nervous feeling starting an online race as I do a real race. The online racing is as competitive as the real thing. I suck at both real and sim racing so there has to be similarities! Very Happy

Only issue with using a TV is apparently the input lag with the controls due to TV's response time, otherwise I'd likely have 3 x 60" TV screens Very Happy

Great set-up Struan, love it. Could buy a few XR2's for the cost of that!

You need to get that i5 clocked up a bit, can do much more than 3.4Ghz even on the stock cooler. Would compliment the 670 too.

Never looked at this part of the forum till tonight as not a gamer at all, whole playstation generation passed me by if I'm honest, but well impressed with your set-up Struan. Could be persuaded to get into it if I had this in the spare room Very Happy
