Is this worth the price?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have been looking to pick up a dedicated PC for my Sim Racing (mainly iRacing). Would like to run a triple 24" monitor set up at 1080p. I have an opportunity to get an I5-4590s paired with an AORUS RX580 4GB. 1x8 DDR3 1600 and 1TB HHD for $169. not looking to spend more than $200 since I already have a main gaming PC. I just do not want to have to keep moving it from my desk to my racing rig.

Thanks for the quick response! I do not plan on running all setting maxed out. I use to run on my very out dated laptop on the lowest setting. My main concern if the GPU can handle 3 monitors. I have seen reviews on people using it for a low end set up on a triple monitor but had a more up to date CPU and DDR4.

Yes 

 

Your limiting factor would be the CPU.

Is that with or without a motherboard, case and PSU?

To kind of part this out:

i5 = 60 USD

RX 580 = 80-100 USD

8GB DDR3 = 30 USD

1TB HDD = 20 USD

 

So having those three parts can make this go from an okay deal to a pretty good deal.

The RX 580 is also still a really good card. Up until two months ago I was still running that and it did pretty well for me! Even certain games at 4K were no issue at all. I don't have experience with iRacing, but for example Dirt 3 and Grid 2 played at well over 100fps average.

Granted, those are older racing games.. But point still stands the RX 580 can hold its own in certain games.

triple 1080p is (exactly) 3/4 (75%) the amount of pixels of 4K, so those numbers I mentioned can be quite reflective of the performance you can expect.

 

The i5 can probably still do alright in games that aren't heavily multi-threaded, but if the games starts receiving more and more updates to optimize for that, it may start holding you back. The S CPU is also a less power hungry CPU A.K.A. a less powerful one, but throwing in a used 1150 i7 can certainly help in the future too.

Thanks for the welcoming.

 

The price includes everything so should just need to plug it up and good to go. From the research I have done iRacing is more GPU bound than CPU.

Sounds fine tbh. Throw in a cheap SATA SSD and you should be good to go.
