FANATIC gaming system

Hey guys, how and what do I connect this to, to make work. Need a screen and some sort of gaming software, I guess?

Thanks

You already bought it or looking to buy?

I see an Nvidia graphics card box in the back. Do you have a pc?

If not I recommend getting a gaming PC, you can get one large gaming monitor for now (those ultrawide monitors would be nice) and get a game. I recommend Project Cars 2 to start

So I don't game, and I'm going to try to be non-judgemental but shouldn't a gamer/nerd be able to post a pic of their rig oriented correctly?

I think he's being sarcastic. U're not spending coin on Fanatec and then figuring out how to use it.

Yeah, pretty sure the wheel base alone is $550. Poor attempt at flexing IMO. Could've at least spelled Fanatec correctly.

Maybe he/she was gifted/inherited this and truly doesn't know?

Sorry guys about the picture, tried turning it around but couldn't, will try again shortly.
The system was given by a friend who's getting rid of it. I honestly have no idea what it is and what it can do.
Thinking of calling the FANATIC people now to see what I need to get it going.
Son, 15 is in gaming and has 3 screens and all that but is baffled with the system as well

It is simply a pretty good driving control system for a driving/racing sim.

Common games you might use it with include Assetto Corsa, iRacing, rFactor 2, etc.

I've actually got a Fanatec CSL Elite starter kit on order and am very much looking forward to its arrival!
