Not even remotely close to photorealistic real-time games. Even the best looking games on the most powerful gaming PC's still lack realism.
A big part of that is from consoles holding back gaming development. Also it depends on the resolution. If it was limited to standard definition, and not held back by consoles, I think we could be much closer.

How can you say that? Look at BF3, the only game written from the ground up for DX10 (all other games to this point have been written for DX9 with DX10-11 add ons.). It also runs on consoles, but on the PC at standard PC resolution of 1920x1200 it takes the most robust hardware (AMD6990s and GTX 590s) to pull over 60 frames per second on Ultra with 4xMSAA. Not even the brand new 7970 can break 60 FPS.

Consoles are hardly at fault. Even without consoles, games today would not look better than BF3/Crysis2. Skyrim looks just okay compared to these games, but even then, I don't know if it would look any better being PC-only: Bethesda was just more focused on gameplay than graphics, and it seems like it was intentionally designed to run well on lower grade hardware as RPG players typically don't have as robust machines as FPS players.
