Hey guys, the unofficial online race last night went great and had a good turnout! With browsing through the comment sections, i've noticed that some are interested but either don't have the budget or any hardware to get going with any sim racing or PC gaming, or simply where to start. With some spare parts sitting around i've thrown together a PC capable of light gaming, which is also excellent for video streaming, web browsing, and ect. Some specs to follow:
AMD A8-3850 CPU (Quad core @ 2.9 Ghz)
8GB DDR3 @ 1336 Mhz (2 - 4GB sticks)
HD 6670 1GB Video Card
300W Power Supply
250GB Hard Drive with Windows 10
With testing it earlier, it will run assetto corsa at 1080P (1920x1080), Low-Med setting between 45-60 FPS. But all of this was running on a 40+ inch monitor. You can expect better performance on a smaller monitor.
Long story short, It's not pretty and its by no means "top of the line or new" hardware, but would be a good budget starter PC for anyone looking to join in on the fun or simply try it out. The computer can be easily upgraded with a faster hard drive or SSD along with a new graphics card if needed. SSD's start at about $40 and a better used Graphics card starts at around $60 (A more powerful power supply would be needed for a bigger graphics card). But if you have any questions or would need to have it perform better, we can work that out as well as I have access to some other spares
Would be looking to get $200 obo for the complete setup (minus a monitor). Comes with a fresh install of windows and I can walk you through setting everything up.
