    I started running a few races at an iRacing rig at an indoor go kart track and I'm now addicted. Their equipment has an Accuforce v2 wheel, and Club Sport v3 pedals and shifter. I was using their Oculus Rift VR goggles and I think that's the way I want to roll with my new rig.


    What are your thoughts on this rig for a first timer? I want to do it right the first time through. It totals up to about $4100 or more if I go with an 80/20 rig.

    Thanks in advance for the feedback!


    1. GTX-1070 i7 gaming PC with 16GB of memory - $1200 - (Is a GTX-1070 a sufficient card for VR or should I be looking at a 1080 Ti or a 1070 Ti? Or is an i5 or AMD build sufficient?)

    2. Oculus Rift - $400

    3. Accuforce V2 with wheel, button box and paddles - $1200

    4. HE Pedals - ~ $800 (or should I go with Fanatec Club Sport v3 pedals?)

    5. Fanatec Club Sport shifter - $200

    6. DIY wooden rig - $100 **OR** Should I build my own 80/20 rig? I am an accomplished wood worker and these same tools can cut aluminum with the right blade of course.

    7. Generic cloth racing seat from Amazon - $119 https://www.amazon.com/Universal-Fully-Reclinable-Racing-Stitch/dp/B0116D5022 (thoughts on this seat? Any real world reviews?)

    8. 2 Dayton Audio BST-1 Tactile Bass Shakers (each allegedly weights 3.75 lbs) - $70 https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-bst-1-high-power-pro-tactile-bass-shaker-50-watts--295-244?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=pla

    9. JL Audio car amp to power #8 - Free, already own

    Is there a large difference between a GTX 1070 and a GTX 1080 when using the Oculus Rift?
