Computer for iRacing

iRacing, previously iRacing.com, is a subscription-based racing simulation released by iRacing.com Motorsport Simulations in 2008. Official races, special events, league races, and practice sessions are all hosted on the service’s servers. The service simulates realistic cars, tracks, and racing events, and enforcing rules of conduct modeled on real auto racing events.

However, as engaging and realistic as this could be, computer systems with little or less functional abilities may have troubles running it. In addition, experiences may differ from one computer system to another due to different functional capabilities various systems offer.

Furthermore, there is an Operating System required for it to be/do what it is designed for.
