Deal Details

Same price as an entry-level luxury car but you never have to pay for oil changes and repairs!

*Regarding the last picture - Alpinestars full race kit and helmet not included.

Not a slick deal this is [simxperience.com] a little over half the price. nod
And this setup has 46" screens instead of the crappy 27" ones on the Costco setup. I saw some guy who posted a 3-monitor 55" Samsung thin-bezel ($3000 a piece at the time). That's what I would put in a triple-monitor gaming setup if money is not an object Smilie

You would think for 35k they would at least step up to three 30" 2560x1600 screens. 1080p is for televisions...
That would be another option. However, not many cards (even SLI setups) will run 7680x1600 very smoothly, unless you start dropping other graphics options. I would go for bigger 1080p screens (55-60") with thin bezels for the best experience.
Something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN5...1363035160
Or, for an extra ~$500 a pop - http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN6...1363035376
Then you just need something to drive 5760x1080 resolution. A pair of GTX670s should do the job.
Now I just need to save $6,500-$8,000 for my next gaming setup!

I'm going to buy one, use it, and return it a week later. Wink
I believe this falls under PCs or Electronics, which means you have 90 days.

Actually, it doesSmilie

Back Ports (Motherboard):
1x PS/2 port (keyboard or mouse)
1x D-Sub port
1x DVI-D port
1x optical S/PDIF out connector
1x HDMI port
1x DisplayPort
2x eSATA 6Gb/s connectors
6x USB 3.0 ports
1x RJ-45 port
6x audio jacks (center/subwoofer speaker out, rear speaker out, side speaker out, line in/mic In, line out)

Have to buy it in Delaware to get around the sales tax, though.

Simulation of G-force isn't included I suppose. Without G-force, it wouldn't be worth it IMO.
This attempts to simulate g-forces with the D-BOX actuator system which is like force feedback for your butt. If you want something a little closer you'll need a 4DOF simulator with hydraulic actuators like one from SimCraft [youtu.be], Motion-Sim [youtu.be] or Force Dynamics [youtu.be]. I think these units are about the same price as the one from Costco.

I'd rather work hard enough to double that $ and get this:

Another manufacturer:
http://www.simcraft.com/

That one actually tilts you forward/back/left/right and yaw (instead of just jiggling you as it appears the Costco one does in the video).

It's great that it teaches you how to drive a race car, but does it also teach you how to appropriately answer questions from the press? I would hate to buy something like this and then get fined $25,000 for a negative/honest comment.

For all you clever people saying I'd rather buy a real racecar, do you know how much the cost is for one weekend of tires, fuel, and crew? Simulated racing is a big thrill and a lot of us would love to own a high end system, maybe not this one but please let's keep the speaking on things you know absolutely nothing about to a minimum.

I know with my rig, triple monitor setup, PC, racing seat, wheel, pedals, shifter, shift light indicators, and playseat with buttkicker for telemetry fed data, I've spend close to 7k on my setup.

For that money they ONLY choice is an Initial D 4 Arcade Stage Limited. They had one in the Sega World in the Dubai Mall. That's what I expected this to be:
