    Greets all,

    I am just getting into sim racing & want to spend money wisely the first time.

    My PC Specs:
    Windows 10 (Laptop)
    Intel i5 - 7300HQ Quad Core (6MB Cache up to 3.5 GHz)
    8GB DDR4 RAM @ 2400MHz
    Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050Ti with 4GB GDDR5 Memory
    1 x HDMI port & 3 USB Ports total on PC.

    Fanatek Sim Setup:
    Clubsport Formula Wheel v2.5X w/ CSL Direct Drive 8nm Base & Clubsport v3 Inverted Pedals.

    I would prefer to have 3 x 27" monitor setup for the best immersion @ 144Mhz - 1080p but not sure if this system will drive three screens? If so, how would I set that up off 1 x HDMI port? (This is a laptop so there is the attached screen powered as well.) Naturally I prefer a crisp picture and faster speeds. Changing PC's is not preferred at this time.

    I have also been looking at the 49" ultra wide screen curved monitors. I'm wondering if that would be a better purchase to provide the crisp picture & faster speeds? This would be at the expense of less immersion with the smaller field of view I'm guessing?

    My apologies as these are probably NOOB questions. I don't do I.T. for a living. Suggestions, comments, etc. would be greatly appreciated!

    Much thanks in advance.

    Sell laptop, buy a PC.
    You will not be able to run triple screens with a single HDMI, unless your laptop supports thunderbolt and use an eGPU. 49" would work at 1080p.

    And, 4GB VRAM isn't enough, and my 1070ti only just does a good enough job running 1080p triples in varied conditions (100+ fps with medium settings in good conditions; night or weather and fps will drop). 8GB system RAM is low. Your CPU is on the low end.

    You need a gaming PC. Don't be fooled by rF2's release date - its development and requirements are current, especially if you start pushing higher resolutions or (eeek!) VR.
