Looking to build a system for iRacing. Looking for it to support 3 monitors. One to start with. This will be my first computer build. Looking for some help to develop a build list. Budget is around 1500 and 2000 would be the high end if needed. Not much interest in other gaming needs.
 
Some suggestions...

Does that include peripherals like keybd, mouse, wheel, pedals, Monitors ??
And speaking of monitors, resolution will make a large difference in what is needed to triple screen games. What resolution are you hoping or aiming for?

This all pretty new for me, so I will apologize for ignorance early on. Was looking at at a Fanatec wheel and pedals. Looking for good resolution for the monitor(s), but not sure what my options are. I will need a whole set up including peripherals as my home computing are all MAC based and I don’t want to go the boot camp route.
