    Yep, I finally installed Windows 10 on my iMac natively.

    So what Driving/Racing Sims would you recommend for my iMac that's now been released from jail.

    The Mac is no slouch by Apple standards, but isn't a heavyweight either. The specs are:

    Processor: i5 3.8GHz 4 core
    Graphics Radeon Pro 580 - approximately equal to the Radeon RX 580, just a tad less powerful.
    RAM 24GB

    I don't really want to duplicate what I've already got on the PS4 so here's a quick list of the PS4 driving/racing games I have - All of them.

    I was thinking ACC for starters. I know some of you are going to come back with iRacing, but I'm not really a fan of the subscription model.

    So fire away

    ACC is a fantastic addition to anyone’s library. If you want more varied content, vanilla AC on PC is a totally different beast to console, so that would be a nice start too.

    I ended up getting both from Steam as a starter. I'm actually amazed that my iMac is handling ACC at medium to high settings at a solid 60 FPS (I've V-Sync active so it may even run higher). I expected a far rougher experience.

    The physics and FFB on AC seem to be slightly different to the PS4 version. The character and feel is very much there, but the difference was enough to make me bin it on corner that I'd never bin it on the PS4 - SloMo of said binning underneath.
