Hey all,
I am working on getting two rigs set up for my basement. I wanted to have three screens and 3d for each rig. My idea is to have a completely enclosed pods 5'h X 4'w X 6'. with steering wheels, pedals, and joystick.
I was looking for advise on purchasing screens, computer, and controllers. I don't want to simply blow money in a system that I find out later I could have done cheaper or doesn't work properly.
What would be ideal is posting a link to a prebuild system from a respected company. I understand that I might not be able to buy everything as a package, but having tower prebuilt would be nice. Any other ideas are always welcome.

thanks for reading.

So you are going to have a 3D Vision Surround Setup with 3 monitors for each system, right?

That means you will either need at least two high-end GPUs such as GTX 570/580 in SLI or a single GTX 590 card.

These systems will be used for racing simulators mostly or?

yes, I do want 3d vision surround with 3 monitors for each setup. I think I will be primarly using racing simulators, but I would like the versitility to play other genres (i.e. flight simulators.)

Did you actually build the pods?
