I'm deciding to make the jump from console to pc, though I have no idea whats good or bad or where to even start. I would like the budget to be $700-$800 but will settle with $1000 if it's worth it. The build would be for Sim Racing games like iracing, Forza Motorsport, and Assetto Corsa. I'd be running Windows 10 with all of this. I already have the actual sim rig already planned out so no need to add that to the parts list, just the pc. If you guys can help I'd be quite thankful.

I haven't bought any of it yet, but a gt omega rig with monitor stand and fanatec base and pedals.

Important question, what monitor resolution do you have? (or want, if you don't have the monitor yet)

I was planning on a 144hz 1440p LG monitor

Something for you to work with. I did not include a copy of Windows, if you need that add $100.

You need a fair amount of GPU power to run good rates at 1440p. If you don't play at ultra settings you can probably get decent results with a 2060 and save $40 or so. I'd suggest poking around for reviews at 1440p with various GPU's to see which one works best for you. I don't think you are going to get much under $1000 at 1440p; at 1080p you can get closer to your $800 number.

Seems like that may be what I'm looking for! Now i just need to start saving. Thank you!

You're welcome! There's plenty of room for changing individual parts (such as the case) but this should give you enough to move forward with.
