My system would be considered a mid system as its a couple of years old... my setup is below with cost.
I have found that it runs RACEROOM without any issues... But not so lucky with AC I had to purchase a newer Video card for smoother operation. I save a little money purchasing a factory refurb from Newegg but its working like a dream. Video Card is going to be your biggest purchase on a Gaming PC. So I didn't really spend any money on anything new as I had this stuff already (except Video Card which I got for 150.00 newegg). So based off of what I have listed today this is about a 600.00 dollar machine. As you can see I have way more power (except Video) than what was asked... FYI both RACEROOM and IRacing will run on older graphics cars just fine (DirectX10). AC and PC require newer (DirectX11) Video Cards to run. I will be posting more as I get more experience online with these SIM Racers.

Please post any questions that you might have with experience online, Hardware/cost, suggestion questions.
