Hey guys, i have a pretty mediocre PC, hardware-wise, obviously not optimized to gaming.

BUT, i'm a massive racing fan, being playing GP4/F1 Challenge 99-02, both with many mods for years,

but i feel it's time to more on to something new, maybe a game with a fresher, larger community.

 

My PC is an HP Laptop, bought back in 2009 (not for gaming, though). I'm running the original Windows 7, SP1, 64-BIT version.

 

The laptop also has:

 

ATI Radeon HD 4530 GFX

Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 T660 GHz

8 GB Ram

 

So, the question is, which game do you guys think i should pick up. Please, be it a Sim. Except iRacing. I can't stand P2P AND freemium.

 

Thanks ;)

GT Legends (get it from Steam) will work perfectly with it.

Live for speed is still a great sim and works on low end PCs

I suggest that you think about obtaining a game from the same era as your computer since most newer titles will ask more of the computer than it can deliver.

I think there is a piece of wise advice.

 

Taking into account the 2009-era, you may consider:

 

- GTR2 (and P&G-mod);

- rFactor, the initial that is, not rF2. Some of the latest mod may be on the heavyside. Also a sim which still has a good community folllowing and even several online leagues;

- from the really old bow: why not try GPL, updated with community add-ons obviously. Old sim there but still one of the best driving feels around, IMO.

 

Hope this helps.

I am not sure about other games, but I suggest you to not uninstall F1 Challenge because I am sure you are going to miss the game after a while. Believe me  :)
