  1. Did you run iracing graphic config before going back into iracing????????

    • Hi,

      I didn’t run the iRacing graphic config again. I normally only run the config if I’m running into graphic slow down issues.

    I like the distance calculation and I would like to suggest an optional schematics – where the side monitors will be mounted with overlapping the middle monitor bezels … in iRacing that works very easy – you have 2 values – 1 without bezel and 1 with …
    in overlapping you add only 1 bezel to the value without.

  3. Where is the side monitor angle measured in reference to the centre monitor?

  4. Hi:

    I am looking to get into iRacing. I have a PC circa 2013 with a 2 core intel processor and an Intel HD graphics card. Windows 10 O/S and plenty of storage.

    Knowing that I couldn’t do triple screen or anything super high end, but rather just try the game out, can I get a decent game experience with that setup or am I wasting my time if I don’t at least get into the budget end of your recommendations?

  5. Thank you for your insightful article. I’m looking to get into iRacing but the only PC I have on hand is a circa-2013 Dell with a 2 core Intel processor and an Intel HD Graphic Card, 4GB RAM

    If I am just running single screen at 60 fps, can I get on that PC by while trying out iRacing, or should I just bite the bullet and go with a budget model described in your post?

    • My gut feel is the Intel Graphics wouldn’t be able to handle it even though iRacing isn’t overly hard on requirements. If your into any sort of gaming a good budget PC would be the way to go. You could always give it a try and see how iRacing goes on your old hardware and see if you like it first.

  6. Hi, thanks for the tutorial. I really appreciate it! Quick question, with these settings: When I alt-tab to make sure my OBS is recording, my triple screen setup goes to a single one and can’t get it back without quitting iRacing. Any ideas on how or why this is happening?

    • It happens to me as well but normally it goes into window mode and stretches across the three screens. ALT + Enter should bring it back to full screen.

      • thx, ALT + enter works, i was having the same problem :)
        but 1 more question, if i, for example, open youtube,and go full screen, it goes on triple screens with the 2 sidescreens black..

        is there a way to go fullscreen one 1 screen with this setup?

        i tried to change somthings so youtube goes fullscreen on 1 screen, but then Iracing doesnt go on 3 screens anymore..

  7. I want to get the skytech 2 or Shadow 2 but I’m afraid it won’t run iRacing as I would like it to. I don’t mind sacrificing some gameplay settings to race but I don’t want to race on an empty field with a white wall around me either. For a budget iRacer….are they worth it? Silly question, but I need some reassurance before I make a purchase.

    • I feel the skytech 2 would be a good choice. To give you an idea I have a gtx 980 in my rig and can run triple 1080p screens. The 1660 in the skytech is very comparable to a 980.

  8. Only half useful, glad you say horizontal width at least, the amount of people who seem to think you measure diagonally is worrying. But I have my monitors at 60 degrees, not 45, the built in iRacing calc allows you to use your own angles.

  9. got a suggestion for measuring triples set up as single screen: rather than having to physically line them up, use (3xMonitorScreenWidth)+(4xBevelWidth) for measurement without bezels,+(6xBevelWidth) for with bezels. Assumes all monitors same size.

  10. You’re doing yourself and your readers a disservice to not mention the awesome SHH Shifters, which are not only better than most others, but also affordably priced.

  11. Hi. Can you help me out. I would like to purchase a Nascar? racing game (the one Dale Earnhart and Denny Hamlin use in sim racing on TV). How do I go about doing that? I’d rather buy from a store than download it. Thanks in advance. I’ll now check out the Skytech Blaze !! at Amazon.

    • The game that they use is iRacing. You can’t buy it from a physical store. You need to either purchase it through steam and download it or go to to sign up and download it. Unlike other games, it’s done by subscription.

  12. Hi,
    I am looking at the Predator Orion 3000 i7-9700/16GB/1TB SSD Desktop for iRacing. Would this setup work?
    Greatly appreciate any help.

  13. Hello there. Looking to start up iracing. Was looking at some alien ware pc. Would any of thes models run good with iracing

  14. Good Morning,
    Look for some advice on a PC for iracing. Not Looking to spend a lot on this as it will be for fun in spare time. By No means am i a hard core gamer. I would just like to be able to run dirt car races and NASCAR tracks. I need to make sure it keeps up as i may choose to enter into Invitational races which are lager scale in car count and graphics Thanks

    • I would suggest any pc with a Nvidia 20 series card would do the trick and intel CPU will be able to handle NASCAR and dirt. My system is around 6 years old and can handle 1080 triple screens.

      • Hello,

        Looking to build an iRacing computer built for 3 monitors and and a GPU capable of running Graphics Shaders for Dirt Track racing. Any suggestions on which Graphics Card would work best please? Thanks!

        • Hi mate, I would be looking at the Nvidia 20 series gpus

          • Would a Nvidia GTX 1660Ti do well?

          • It will but the 20 series would be better long term. The 30 series from Nvidia is on the horizon which should lead to some good deals on 20 series parts. I currently run a gtx980 and can run triple screens on the road side with some settings turned down.

  15. i’m getting stuck, could someone help me out?
    i’m getiing 3 Iiyama ProLite XU2792HSU-B1 (27″) for a triple screen setup but cant make out what the ideal viewing distance has to be and the angle between the screens?

  16. Will this work for IRacing?Lenovo® IdeaCentre 720 Desktop PC, AMD Ryzen, Radeon® RX 560, 16GB Memory, 128GB SSD/2TB Hard Drive, Windows® 10 enabledYesGraphics TypeDedicatedmaximum memory capacity32 GBMaximum Turbo Speed4.1 GHzmemory16 GBmemory card readerYesmemory typeDDR4 SDRAM

    Hi I just recently ordered the HP gaming tower you have linked here, but I just noticed they have a newer version, would this one still be better? Or should I send it back for a refund for the newer version????

  19. hey i am running 1x 2560×1440 monitor and 2x 1920×1080 monitors.. how do i go about making the system realize that my center screen is better than the other two

  20. Is there a different setup for samsung 49″ curved monitor or is using the single screen setup with imaginary viewing distance perpendicular to screen edges right?

  21. this video didn’t help me at all. zero sound and it seems to be incomplete instructions as well…

  22. Can you make the UI or relative box go invisible when driving.
