    Hi guys

    After a long long time out of playing sim-racing games (like, 15 years!!), I am now going to pick this up again. I'm looking at ordering the Simagic Dynamic when it's available, and I've decided to play it on VR.

    I've watched and read numerous reviews and think the HP Reverb will be the best headset for me, due to resolution if nothing else.

    I will be running this through my Macbook Pro in Bootcamp, so it will effectively run natively. I cannot justify buying a dedicated PC rig as I already use my MBP daily. So here will be my spec:

    - i7 8750h 2.2 ghz 6-core
    - 16gb 2400mhz DDR4 ram
    - SSD hard drive
    - eGPU (I'm in the process of ordering, but likely the GeForce RTX 2070 8gb card)

    I know the HP Reverb requires a lot of GPU power to run smoothly with decent settings, so do you think this set up will be enough?

    If not, please can you recommend a better graphics card for around $500, or am I just not being realistic here?

    Thanks in advance, and I'm looking forward to seeing some of you on the track soon!!
