I was a Question

Is a clutch really needed for games such as iRacing/Rfactor/Simraceway? Its just that I dont have much money left for a wheel for my PC and all the £££ ones have clutch pedal setups. I could afford a cheaper wheel but it'll only have a 2 pedal setup.

I never use my clutch, it's too slow compared to flappy paddles when racing. Clutch is ok for a bit of fun.

Just got my brand new PC today...and the Router ports dont work to run it on my network cable Evil or Very Mad

I run the Xbox wireless so its unaffected (thankfully!)

Does it matter which router I get as the Xbox is wireless/PC is Wired???

Think its a standard card yeah its nothing fancy that i added. The xbox and laptop dont work when I wire them up to the router so im sure Its the ports that have been damaged from use in the past.

I was away to download iRacing only to notice it says -

"NVidia GeForce 7800 / ATI Radeon X1800 or above graphics adapter recommended"

And i have a overclocked GeForce 560 Ti Sad I downloaded a demo of Rfactor 1 and its like a bad ps2 game! Embarassed

A 560 ti should easily handle the games your throwing at it, it's only a year and a half old which is newer than the 7800. I have a 9800 in my 5 year old computer. rfactor does look like a PS2 game mind.

I really want to get iRacing again bt there are no deals going for existing members and I don't want to lose my rank on it. Plus I won't have much time this month. I'll wait until Donnington and Montreal are released.

Spend far too much time on it to slowly level up. Took me ages to get to NASCAR Razz
