TRIPLE Monitor gaming – GIGABYTE CV27F / Thrustmaster Race Kit !

Rating: 8.5.

It just so happens we have been sent the perfect combination of products for review to create the ultimate racing simulator setup! The three 1080p 27 inch Aorus CV27F monitors that Gigabyte sent us are curved and feature a 165 hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, freesync and HDR certification. With a price tag of £359 they don’t come cheap so what are they like to use? 

TS-PC Racer is Thrustmaster’s top wheel for PC racers. It has been designed to reproduce the car’s response to track conditions using a range of technologies to enhance gaming performance and offer a racing experience closer to reality. This should provide the ultimate level of immersion for gamers but it does come with a very hefty price tag of £499. I put it through it’s paces alongside the T3PA-PRO pedals to see if it’s worth it!
