I cannot wait for CARS to release. For now I'm really enjoying iRacing and would definitely suggest it if you want to get back into sim racing. Also I have to say not only is a good wheel/pedal/shifter combo a must, but some tactile transducers are a definite must for total immersion.

I've got two Dayton Pucks attached to my pedals and a Clark Synthesis TST209 attached to my office chair. The Corvette C6r is frickin' gnarly to drive with this thing strapped to my chair!

HesterDW nice mods on the g27! Where did you get them?

I bought my g27 just after Xmas and haven't used it much till Grid 2. I did play a bit of dirt 3 but didn't like the brake pedal spring. I found out that you can upgrade the spring, I done his the other day. It makes such a difference. I see used g27 all the time on eBay is it a case of people buy them don't use them or they break or get worn out?

4k is obviously more taxing than surround portrait but you don't get the bezels. But with surround portrait you can run at 120 ~ 144hz and have picture clarity with the light boost hack. I will never choose a high res monitor at 60hz again when I can have 144hz at just as high resolution in portrait. Plus it just looks mean. smile.gif

is there a way to not have un-used monitors turn off with surround? I'm afraid the answer is no as google couldn't turn up much of an answer frown.gif

Mine works fine when I play single-monitor games. But I can't understand how people play Skyrim in surround with the UI being cut off at the top/bottom.

I got all my transducers and amps from parts-express. I bought Grid 2 the other day. Once you get used to iRacing it's hard to jump into a game like Grid 2 where drifting corners is faster than braking tongue.gif. I actually just ordered a brake spring from GTEYE in Melbourne last week, might that be the one you bought?

I also bought my G27 on ebay and the brake was just fine. I think there are so many on ebay because it's such a niche product. People just get out of racing heavily so they have no use for it.

If I didn't watch movies from my computer all the time I would definitely have a setup like yours. I still miss my 120hz monitor.

Yeah GTEYE is where i got my spring from. It makes such a difference! You'll need some allen keys, a shifter and a phillips head screw driver.

So IRacing is Good? Graphics ok? Whats the main points you like about it.

Cheers

Ordered two gtx 780s and waiting to order a 3rd once my last titan sells. Can't wait to try them out in Surround biggrin.gif
post #5178 of 8948
what prompted this move @ wermad, you going from Titan SLi to 3-SLi 780's...?
all matching eVGA's..?

The MVE turned out less then stellar. Not sure if it was a bad one but I sent it back and used the refund to buy the second 780. Keeping the Sniper3 for now since I still love the onboard audio.


I'm paying a bit more but I want a bit more grunt with tri 780s. I can't afford three Titans so it was a no brainer. Sadly, the first titan sold in a heart beat but the Asus is not getting any love. I noticed that the EVGE SC gpu(s) tend to sell best so I'm investing a little bit more in buying SC 780s. Wife not too happy but I'm selling some extras that should allow me to break even with this new setup biggrin.gif

Oh yea I can't wait till project cars either. To bad can't get in.

I am looking at a fanatec csr wheel package. I like the thrustmaster t500rs too but it costs even more and shifter is still seperate and no xbox support. I had a g25 at one point back in 09 but I had to sell it. G27 doesn't work with 360 unfortunately either, and I do like to play forza however who knows if these fanatec wheels will work on xbox one. Obviously the wireless won't work because m$ is changing that on the one but hopefully they will give it usb support. I love racing games on all platforms, so I want to make sure I have the compatibility between all 3.
