What Computer To Aim For?

26 Oct 2016

Dear community,

GPL is my favorite game (in fact the ONLY game I ever play) and love to run a lap now and then. Ever since I bought the original GPL in the mid 90'ties and later when I found out how much new input was made by you fantastic MODders. Therefore I have a room reserved with a computer and a wheel.

I would like to run in full detail mode and all modified tracks. But when I was eager to check out the new Spa track I run into trouble with the present setup of: Laptop HP EliteBook 8440p, Intel Core i7 M 620 2.67 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 64 bit with Nvidia NVS 3100M graphics. Probably it's a matter of graphics but GPL refuses any attempt to run that detailed track.

Anyway, as used desktop computers are rather cheap, and there would be easy to find any couple-of-years-old-one that would do, I just want some good advice what specifications to look for. Couldn't find any thread about that (perhaps there is, if so excuse my ignorance) so I would be most greatful of suggestions of gear of obtaining this.

My best

Sadly I Must Go

22 Oct 2016

I'll be leaving the internet soon. The order is in to turn off my cable connection. I've been on package deals with the cable company, but they've all run out. My bill will increase $80 a month if I stay on it. As someone who's trying to survive on a Social Security check. I just can't afford it. So, I have no option.

To the friends i've made it's been fun. To those i've rubbed the wrong way......sorry. I was hoping the 55 mod would be released before I had to do this, but it didn't make it. My loss.

So, I say goodby and know i'll be driving GPL every day. Yes, Leon in the Ferrari. :D

Nascar 15 Victory edition is only £7 uk pounds on Steam (about just over $8 I think?)
Comes with free Dlc paint car packs and 2016 season update.
Seems a bargain to me 😃

Dave Friedman Collection: 1966 Watkins Glen Usgp

A lovely archive: https://www.flickr.c...57628940694499/

I love the shots of Bandini. Mr. Friedman had a real eye for a photo. A very fortunate man too to have had such a wonderful opportunity to see such legends of the sport close. Remarkable.
