I've had a bunch but most recently been using Corsair K70. I prefer not as I use a separate rest depending on desk setup. I also prefer to hover type most of the time.

Have you actually tried Creatives AE-9 ? That thing sounds absolutely amazing especially when paired with a good set of cans.

My HD7870XT is being retired after 8 solid years in service. Found this Saphire RX480 Nitro for £65 (Some guy has loads of them, "refurb", on eBay).


And also got myself a Thrustmaster T150 RS wheel to tide me over till the racing starts again (Probably worth more than my actual PC at this point but hopefully not for too long, though I want a 3 pedal set and a H-pattern shifter down the line)

Some of those people are truely awful, had been reading a report that police are now offered masks and face protection from people spitting on cops with the same awful reasons.

Is the GPU working well for you? I know a few people who could use new graphics cards, and this will tide them over until DX12 Ultimate GPUs become cheap.

Can you link me or PM me the seller?

We should revisit the project cars challenge thread again. Random car, random circuit and aim for the best time.

Yep, everything's worked as expected, and he's providing 12 months of warranty(Not sure how that works), apparently this guy has sold 40 of them in the last 24 hours according to eBay, he also seems to have some other models.

I don't have Project Cars atm but I assume it's quite cheap now so could pick up. I do have Asseto Corsa (Original), Forza Motorsport(And hoz), the Dirt Rally games, F1 2019 and a few others though.

I picked up the Deluxe Edition of Project CARS 2 for around £15 last week. If we're going to be starting up the challenges again perhaps we can bump up to the sequel now it's so cheap?
