Hy everyone
I wanted to ask an opinion from you Grand Prix Legend experts.
Probably i will have to buy a new PC to replace my current one that still uses Windows7 and install Windows10, in your experience does Grand Prix Legend work well with this system or will i encounter problems?
Can you recommend me an optimal PC configurations,Ram,Video card etc etc for the new PC?
Thank you all in advance

Can you give us an idea what you want to do with this PC? Only GPL?
How much money do you want to spend? Will you keep parts of the old PC?

Are you able to built up yourself a PC?

GPL works just as well on W10 as it did on W7 for me.

For cpu pretty much anything modern will do for GPL, both Intel and AMD.
AMD if you want more cores and better workload peformance, Intel if you purely care about gaming peformance and clockspeed.
If you're on a thight budget Ryzen is the way to go.

For the gpu I might have an unpopulair opinion here, but in my own experience AMD just works easier and better when it comes to GPL.
Most people here use Nvidia though, so that works as well for sure. But it's just a hassle to get it to look the way you want in my opinion.
I had many problems with GPL when I bought a 2070 Super. (Returned it for that reason)

I have a R9 290 and a 5700 XT, both can run GPL with 8x super sampling without giving a sweat. So if you don't use your pc for many modern games there's no need to buy a expensive gpu.

Thanks for the replies,
Cookies are not able to assemble the PC,and it is not a question of price but i would like to be sure that GPL works well with Windows10 because i mostly use the PC for this simulator and i don't use other games!

Thanks Millenium for your answer :up:

niki,  

  as you, see KARTM link, I got useful advices from alls here.

   I see that it will be a GPL mostly dedicated PC, as for me . I just add you have to consider also the monitor / resolution you'll use or if you have a plan later to invest on a triple screen, or an ultra large screen (on the topics I have read at SRMZ, not recommended for GPL ).

   A triple screen / 144 HZ / 2560 X 1440 = 7680 X 1440 can be demanding for the CPU and the GFX.

Needforspeed i am using a 32" LG Monitor/TV with the highest graphics resolution,wich is 1366x768 and that works very well,so i would think os continuing to use this monitor.

OK, then goes for KARTM config ,

so you 'll save time searching and comparing hardware, a boring and time consuming thing imo.
