    Alright I'm in Melbourne (near enough) so I'll let a Sydneysider recommend some other shops.

    Hello everyone. Just for something different, here's my cheap build for older Sim Racers. Nothing too fancy:

    CPU: Intel Xeon x5460 (with adapter sticker to work in a LGA775 motherboard)
    RAM: 8GB DDR2 (4X 2GB)
    GPU: ASUS Strix GTX950 2GB
    Motherboard: ASUS P5-Ne SLI (with modified CPU socket and BIOS to work with LGA771 Xeon CPU)
    PSU: 500w
    HDD: 1TB Seagate

    Runs Assetto Corsa at an average of 70+ FPS, 1080p everything maxxed out during online races . Best part is it cost less than the cost of a new Nvidia GTX1050Ti on it's own. Anyone else got what could be considered a "Scrapyard Wars" style PC build?

    All of the used parts were from both eBay and Trade Me since I'm based in NZ. 771 to 775 mod instructions are here:

    Total cost including a Cooler Master case was around NZ$260. Just got lucky with prices on the bigger parts.

    What's in your build? Almost moved to a EVGA x58 SLI board I got for free with a 6 core Xeon X5680 (Need to run Virtual Machines too). So far the board doesn't work so considering at least a Ryzen 5 1600 build.
