Best PC racing sims?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I am all about GT5 when it comes out for my PS3. But I would like to play some good racing sims on my PC too. I have tried Live for Speed and find it kinda lackluster. I would like to find something that takes advantage of my rig. I also have a Logitech force-feedback racing wheel, so what do you guys think I should try ? (something with a demo preferably)

There used to be a DiRT demo on Filefront, not sure if it's still there.

Graphics look decent. I wonder what it plays like... I love the M3, too. Right now, it's my dream car.
