I recently upgraded my PC to a spec that I can now run rF2 in DX11 and PCars2 at full settings on Ultra etc at 1080p well above 75fps.

The parts I used:
Gigabyte AB350 Gaming 3 Motherboard - £70 ex display
AMD Ryzen 3 1300X - £80 pre owned off eBay
8Gb DDR4 Corsair Ram - £70 pre-owned off eBay
GTX1070 Zotac Mini - £390 - www.ebuyer.com/780067-zotac-nvidia-gefor...-card-zt-p10700g-10m

It's twice as quick as my old spec of a AMD FX-4100, HD7970, 12 Gb DDR3 Ram and Asus Motherboard with an average of 100fps across the board in all the new racing sims.
Hope this helps someone to get a cheaper PC upgrade.

It will also run PUBG at 90-110 fps without any dips or lags on Ultra.
If you run higher than 1080p go for the GTX1080.

Its a good little setup, the GPU and CPU are easy to overclock and its way way faster than a previous generation DDR3 based AMD CPU system. So basically a highish spec PC for £600, I would imagine these prices will come down after Christmas also.

I cant afford an SSD yet but I expect that will make it even faster as I am still running on an HDD.

PC: Win10 64 bit, AMD Ryzen 1300X @3.7Ghz, Gigabyte AB350 Gaming 3 , 8Gb DDR4, NVidia GTX1070, Logitech G27 Wheel+Pedals.

Going from the FX to the Ryzen made a massive difference Dani, I was quite shocked at how fast the smaller Ryzen is... :woohoo:
