PC Computer Spec help

Discussion in 'Assetto Corsa' started by Tom Michelmore, Feb 21, 2014.

  1. Hey,

    I'm a complete noob when it comes to computer specs but I like the look of Assetto Corsa and I'd like to know if my PC would be able to run it. I know my PC is pretty bad which is why I'm asking here, don't want to spend money to find I can't run it, and in the likelihood I can't, what I should try and upgrade? Cheers. )

  2. A dedicated Graphics Card would see you running it ok imho. An R9 270x or R9 280 depending on your budget should give you all of the eye candy with decent frame rates (35+ with full grid v AI on 270x and 45+ on the 280).
    You could run it as is, but you will have to dial out some of the details to get playable frames.

    My tuppence worth anyway :thumbsup:
     
  3. if you like hotlapping then maybe yes.
    AI cars arent possible.

    Not overly familiar with that cpu but amd trend to struggle more. Your ram amount is good. You would need to get a discrete gpu though. Those look like onboard graphics, which is a no go. What's your monitor resolution?

    Thanks everyone for helping.
     
  6. The on-board graphics tend to be not so robust so, that looks like the only thing that might keep you from using AC with your PC. Also, pay attention to the power demand of any dedicated video cards as those vary. More powerful cards require a better power supply. Know what PSU you have before researching the possible graphics card candidates.

    I'm pretty good with bulging computers, so I can help you get up and running. Sounds like you have an off the shelf computer. Google the specs it has for oversupply if listed and post it here. How much can you afford to part with to get started?

  9. Yup that's my system. I could afford to part with around £150 but I can go up to £200+ if needs be, although cost isn't too much of a problem, I just don't want to shell out £300+!

    I'll try and track down what power supply you have and find a video card for it. I'm at work so it may be tonight.

  11. Ok thank you very much! :)
     
  12. You know what, id spend £60 on a nice 650w PSU and then try and buy a second hand GTX660Ti, Should come within your £200 budget and should have an OK system for running AC then.

    @Simon Roberts, that is an excellent idea! I have never checked out the used for sale thread on here but that might net you a nice buy.
     
  14. Ok thanks for the help :), I guess then that I'll need the PSU to give enough power to the graphic card?

    Again, thanks for the help!

  15. I'll take a look at it for sure. I found a GTX660 Ti from here http://www.bestbuy.com/site/nvidia-...card/6208848.p?id=1218720725742&skuId=6208848 for £138.18 which seems like a good deal especially as that means I'll just be over £200 if I buy that PSU which judging by the reviews, seems a worthy purchase.

  16. Are you in the US or UK?
     
  17. UK.

    EDIT: Ah, I saw free shipping but turns out they don't ship to the UK.

  18. Great! I think I'll most likely purchase that as well as the PSU from Amazon (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-Builder-Series-Modular-Certified/dp/B00ALK3QRS) since that's in stock now and currently is £68.98. It comes out as a total of around £250 but I'm not too bothered since I think that will allow me to run games to a decent standard for the next few years without having to upgrade.
