Thanks, even if its not DirectX 10. Is that the only recent one? The rest are all first person shooter, EPG games? Very odd. I'd use my WII and XBOX 360 for gaming, but the graphics completely suck compared to what I've seen on the PC.

Bioshock is great but the textures and models (while very well drawn) are low resolution and low polygon count not befitting a modern pc game.

the artwork and originality and style of the graphics is second to none but the game engine blows (to put it bluntly) as far as being "DX10" is concerned.

F.E.A.R. has a very underused comparable water effect which was the only real difference. in the two DX flavors.

Lost Planet uses multiple cores the best.

I have seen more than 88% CPU usage between 4 cores.

Thanks guys for all your information. Wow, it goes to show how significant artwork is in a game. For someone like me who doesnt know anything about the engineering behind video games, to my eyes, the bottom line is, Bioshock looks "better" than pretty much any games I've seen; regardless of polygon count and 3D engine. I'm definitely going to buy DiRT. I can't find it at any local stores and may just ordered it from Amazon. If there any other games you guys could think of with really good artwork and just fun to play, I'd really appreciate your recommendations!

Racing games or just any other gener ? in both cases check the gaming forum. there are tons of good looking games listed there.

& after you play DIRT & like it you might need to keep an eye on the upcoming GRID (uses the Neon engine , same graphics engine used in DIRT - DX9)
