That's the old joystick port from the 90's. You need one of these: USB Converters Serial,Parallel,PS/2 and More - USB to Joystick or Game Port NOTE! For Analog Controllers only!

I think Logitech made those Dexxa? New or used? I used to do a lot of sim racing and used a number of Logi wheels, some of them have POT wear issues requiring replacements only after a few months.

Don't know how hard it is to replace the POTs in the Dexxa, you may want to look into that before springing for a game port converter.
