One of my friends has the super cheap sim rig and base Thrustmaster on PS4 and it has held up well but doesn't have the best feeling to it or realism. Are there much better setups than I have also, for sure but it has been fun and seems to be a good entry point into this. If you go console, get a wheel that can go from your console to PC in the future as that is my goal down the line. I've played Forza 7 and Project Cars 2 on my setup and Grand Turismo on my friends. All the games are good and offer a different experience so you will enjoy yourself no matter what direction you go!

Thanks for the idea to check the marketplace. I always forget to look on Facebook for stuff.

As for budget, I'm trying to stay under $2k including monitor(s). I'll probably start with one monitor for the time being but I want something I can eventually expand to 3.

All the parts I have looking at have been compatible with bot PS4 and PC. I guess I should probably add XBox into the mix. I don't have anything against it. My last console was a PS1 so I guess it just comes to my mind because it's the newer version of what I once had.
