Just curious as to what games fully support and utilize all the cores of a quad core processor.

All of them.

...Oh, you mean more then .001% at a time? Not many; I know Dragon Age is very good in that regard; I noticed all 4 cores at 60%.

Using dynamic libaries (.DLL) isn't exactly compatable with multi-processing environments, so Windows will never be a good OS for that task. It can be done, but it takes a lot of effort...

It is such a bad port of a console game that a Quad Core is recommended...

I think Supreme Command benefits.

Bad Company 2 Beta is using 4 of 8 (i7) cpus at 30-50% load. It seems to be using cpu0 of each physical cpu, so my guess is it senses the hyper-threading and is just running 4 cpus instead of 8 to reduce contention with HT.

I haven't played it in a while, but I believe Fallout 3 was using all four cores on my comp.
