Sim Racing Build Questions

edited February 13 in Help Choosing Parts

New Sim Racer and PC builder here looking for assistance on a build. I am thinking of a i9 cpu bundle and an RTX 4070 Super GPU but have questions on the other components. Currently the build comes to under $1500 including tax and I’d like to keep it there. I’ll mostly be using ACC and iracing. I will be starting on a 43” 4K 60 hz tv and upgrading to (3) 27 or 32 in. 1440 monitors within 2 years. Thank you for your assistance!

    I don't see any issues with what you have picked out, the video card could be quite a tight fit though, the case is listed as 12" for max video card length and triple fan 4070 super's are usually about the same length so it might be a tight fit or you'd need to possibly look for a case that can support a bit of a longer video card.
