Since I couldn't get a 360 that lasted more than about 2 weeks, I got a Logitech MOMO Racing Force Feedback wheel instead. Now I just need to find some current games (NFS Porsche Unleashed is fun but dated).

I've tried the TOCA 3 demo, and I may pick that up.
Also going to try the GT Legends demo.

Any other good racing games for the PC that I should consider?

Need for speed pretty much...

Also, you can always pick up a cheap PS2 and get Gran Turismo 4 :D

GTR and GTR-Legends are at the top of the list if you want realism. Although with community support Grand Prix Legends and Nascar Racing Season 2003 are aging like fine wine.

GTR looks nice, but GTR 2 is due out later this year - may just wait for that.

One recurring theme I see in all the new racing games is that they all use that starforce *!$% for copy protection. That adds an additional software layer to your drive interface and has been known to kill cd/dvd-r drives (as in dead hardware). Looks like I may have to add a drive and dual boot the system.
