Default Recommend me a good Racing/Driving Game

Anybody know of any fun driving or racing games on the PC that have come out lately. I have been consumed in FPS's (bioshock, COD4, Crysis) and feel like I need a break.

I just bought a decent USB gamepad (clone of an Xbox360) controller), and want to give a fun driving or racing game a whirl.

Any suggestions???

*INTEL Quad-Core Q6600 GO (yet to OC...)
*EVGA 8800GT 650/950
*2X 150GB WD Raid 0
*22" Gateway HD LCD Display
*Delta 700W PSU

I was madly addicted to Grand Turismo Aspec when it came out, but only played it for a few days. I know this is on console, but are there any games like this in terms of customization and selection? Also been thinking about getting a console, anything out on the 360 or PS3 like it?

PC lacks the really good driving/racing game titles...NFS are pretty fun, but if you're into realistic there aren't too many options.

  • XFX R9 390 8GB
  • 16GB (8x2) GSKILL DDR3 1866mhz
