If you love pulse-racing speeds, high-adrenaline action and breath-taking visuals, then you need a computer that’ll keep up with your passion for racing games. So, it’s time to buckle up, turn on the gas and gear up for the race of your life as we run through what makes a great computer for racing games.
Racing games are some of the best looking around, but you need a serious gaming computer to run them. The biggest titles feature realistic weather effects, mud flying off the ground and the greatest cars ever built to bring the most famous race tracks to life. Graphics cards like the Nvidia GTX 1050 or 1060 will fill your games with amazing detail. If you want to ramp up your experience though, the GTX 1070 or 1080 will give you incredible results.
Time to take a look under the hood. You’ll need a fast processor and plenty of RAM in the passenger seat to make sure even the most demanding games run perfectly without any slowdown. Intel’s i5 processor will keep you going, while the i7 gives you an incredibly smooth ride. Most games only need 8GB of RAM to keep your computer speedy, but 16GB will help you future-proof for upcoming games.
If you want to add an extra dose of realism, a steering wheel will help you take your races to the next level. This accessory plugs in to your computer really easily, so get ready to channel your inner Schumacher and put the pedal to the metal. See you at the finish line!
