    Hi all, hopefully somebody here can point me in the right direction. I'm looking to get into Racing Sims. Always been interested in motorsport, and having researched the various sims, iracing has caught my interest in particular. I need to buy a gaming PC and have found two within my price range which I think will do the job.

    I have very little knowledge about computers and hope to get the following two questions answered here:

    1. Will both of these computers be capable of running iracing?

    2.If so which would be the better option and why?

    Better off posting this on the PC building and upgrading forum.

    I don't know much about iRacing but the first build is far better.
