OS: Windows 11 Home - CPU: Intel Core i9 14900K - Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Super - RAM: 32GB Vengeance DDR5 - Storage: 2TB M.2 SSD

Equipped with Windows 11 Home, a 14th-gen Intel Core i9 CPU, and an RTX 4080 Super graphics card, it's got the power to tackle practically any task, all while running on the latest operating system.

Alongside power, this thing has plenty of storage and memory. You get 32GB of DDR5 RAM to help with load times and smoothness of racing action, plus a 2TB M.2 SSD that more than exceeds the 100GB of space needed to download the game. That also gives you ample room for storing documents, other games, and even F1 24 mods if you're into that sort of thing.

Moving on to the equally stylish Legends 72 PC from Chillblast, whose case is inspired by the classic black and gold Lotus F1 car from the '70s. Chillblast actually has a complete Legends range, but this one might be our favorite, especially as its specs meet its design in terms of suitability for F1 24.

Speed and storage are no problem, as it boasts a massive 2TB NVMe SSD plus 32GB of DDR5 RAM in total. You also get an eight-core AMD Ryzen 7 processor with a similar RTX 4080 Super graphics card as the Corsair ONE i500 mentioned above. In short, it's got enough power under the hood to run F1 24 beyond its minimum settings.

Best budget PC for F1 24

OS: Windows 11 Home - CPU: Intel Core i5-12400F - Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 - RAM: 16GB ‎DDR4 - Storage: 1TB NVMe PCIe SSD

The PCs we've mentioned so far have all been quite expensive, which we appreciate isn't ideal if you're working with a restricted budget. Thankfully, this Acer Nitro N50-640 is a little cheaper, yet still has specs that exceed the minimum system requirements for F1 24.

In most cases, it actually exceeds the minimum requirements and then some, with it boasting a 12th-gen Intel Core i5 CPU with an older but still very capable RTX 3060 GPU that comes close to the recommended specs. You also get 16GB of RAM, meeting the recommendation by Codemasters and EA, plus a hefty 1TB SSD that gives enough room to download F1 24 and other AAA titles.

You benefit from additions like Auto HDR, too thanks to the inclusion of Windows 11 Home, meaning your F1 24 experience, along with gaming in general, is next-level.

4. Chillblast The Verge

Best PC for F1 24 to max. out the settings

OS: Unspecified - CPU: Intel Core i9 14900K - Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 - RAM: 2 x 32GB DDR5 - Storage: 2TB Kingston FURY Renegade PCIe 4.0 x4 NVMe

To experience F1 24 at its absolute best, you're going to need a bit of a beast. In this case, something like this Chillblast The Verge PC more than fits the bill. Okay, this one may be a little overkill for a game like F1 24, but owning it means you can play the most demanding of AAA titles while also futureproofing your setup for the next generation of releases.

The reason we say that is because it comes with an impressive 24-core Intel Core i9 14900K, a top-tier RTX 4090 GPU, and 64GB of DDR5 RAM which exceeds what most of us will ever need while gaming. It also features a 2TB SSD and a beautiful water-cooling system that you can spy through the clear side panels.

Speaking of its design, this PC has a cool LED screen that lets you showcase custom messages and animations, or just display your system's vitals, which can come in handy when you're pushing your PC to its limits and need to make sure you're not pushing things too far. You will struggle to do that though, because The Verge is as beastly as they come.

5. Alienware Aurora R16

Best midrange PC for F1 24

OS: Windows 11 Home - CPU: Intel Core i7-13700F - Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 - RAM: 16GB DDR5 - Storage: 512GB NVMe M.2 PCIe SSD (Boot) + 1TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s (Storage)

Toeing the line between being budget-friendly and pricey, the Alienware Aurora R16 comes in as an excellent midrange option to consider with its solid Intel Core i7-13700F CPU, RTX 4060 GPU, and 16GB of DDR5 memory that exceed the recommended requirements for F1 24.

You also get a lot of storage, albeit in two different forms. On one side, you get a modest 512GB SSD (still enough to store F1 24), however, you also get a 1TB SATA drive. That may be a little slower for storing F1 24, but can come in useful for storing small files or backing up game saves.

Its design is also worth mentioning as it's up to 40% smaller, 20% quieter, and 7% cooler than its predecessor. The cooling is thanks to Alienware's efficient airflow system using larger passageways and optimized internal cable management to make sure key components stay frosty. Also, as it's a little smaller, it's easier to fit on a desk, and that's perfect if you have a top racing wheel to worry about as well.

Reasons to buy:

  • It's not too expensive, nor too pricey, as far as gaming PCs go
  • Its specs exceed the recommended for F1 24
  • It has a compact design with improved cooling compared to its predecessor
