For anyone embarking on a budget sim rig journey considering using a cheap / spare TV instead of computer monitor, this is what I gathered from my recent sim racing experience, comparing my existing 55″ 1080 TV setup to a computer monitor.












While the expansive TV screen offered immersive visuals, the computer monitor brought forth a sharper focus on details and a faster response time. However, it’s essential to note that for those on a budget, using a spare TV can be a cost-effective solution.

That rig and 49" can potentially buy me a used e46. Hahaha... but what a rig
Must've been the strategically taken pics, Tbh the rig is not much at all, this relic logitech system is what I had circa 2010, just reconfigured for today's use. People still sell the exact steel frame new for the same 1500. In fact this one was a demo unit from an After12 ad on the marketplace here. I can't seem to find the post anymore. Quite a bit of history with this setup over the years, very nostalgic. Also proud that it performs beautifully, especially with some additions I made, more recently being the GT3 inspired wheel

whats your computer hardware like? Pretty sure you need a pretty powerful GPU and CPU to run anything like this on high settings

the pc is average i suppose, it's an amd ryzen 5 3600, rtx2060 6gb, 16gbram and ssd, for 1080p it's just right, not so good for 4k
technically even a laptop can run the games, just with less detail

There was another party event being held at the same night where Femme Fatale was held. Instead of the parking lot, these guys manage to secure a nice larger stage, nearer to the Grandstand of the Sepang F1 Circuit. There were lots of crowd that turned up in the event despite the remote location where it was held...
