When are you going to bother with dx10, if at all? It does look a lot better, but I guess I don't want to splash out on a pricey, compatible card, but I don't want to be behind in gaming either.

I'm not going to bother. Not yet, anyway, what with the only DX10 cards right now costing £500 or so.

When I've built a new system with PCI-E and stuff. By which point Vista/DX10 will have been here for a while, DX10 games will have started to come out and DX10 hardware will be cheaper.

When a card that is significantly better than my current card fits my budget and there is an interesting game taking advantage of DX10. That should take a while as I'd rather not spend more than 150€ and FH2 should keep me busy for a while if it is released anytime soon.

Arch...not having a go at you or anything, but try and avoid single-word posts. There are other ways of getting your point across. :)

Anyway, yes DX10 cards will run Dx9 games. Ironically, however, they won't work with Vista or Dx10 based games yet, at least not until nVidia release updated drivers. :lol:

You'll need a new card. The only ones available at the moment that support DX10 are the nVidia 8800GTS/GTX...which are insanely expensive.
