    Hey there, As the console generation comes to an end, I am looking into buying a Gaming PC to replace my Xbox

    I have a budget of around £500 and am looking for somthing that will run rFactor 2, P. Cars, F1 2012+ and iRacing on good FPS with good settings

    Me and my dad are complete noobs when it comes to computers, so building one ourselfs is out of the question,

    Thanks in advance

    You might want to try and push the funds a little higher then just £500 mate.

    An have a look at www.scan.co.uk its where I get all my hardware from, an they are the best in the uk for computers, plus there service and after sale service is second to none.
    Plus they will build it for you too. :thumbsup:

    I'm not all that familiar with UK prices, but in USD 500 would build a pretty good PC for sim racing (without the monitor, wheel and all of that)

    looking on amazon uk you can buy the i5 3450 for 140, B75 motherboard for 40-50
    8GB of memory for 20, Radeon 7850 for 170, there is still room for a decent PSU (corsair 430w for 30), Hard drive for 50 I think, and any cheap case... this should work pretty well for any game/sim... now if you are looking for a built system, and a monitor, things can get harder.
