DiRT 3 boasts more cars, more locations, more routes and more events than any other game in the series, including over 50 rally cars representing the very best from five decades of the sport. With more than double the track content of 2009's hit, DiRT 3 will see players start at the top as a professional driver, with a top-flight career in competitive off-road racing complimented by the opportunity to express themselves in Gymkhana-style showpiece driving events.

Good FPS for both setups and the gap at the highest resolution isn't very large, but you can clearly see that the FX-8150 is just putting up this wall a lot earlier than we'd like. The 120FPS region at 1920 x 1200 is important as we start to see more companies jump on the 120Hz bandwagon as well.
