I heard someone say on here in one of my threads about video cards that there was a way to get DirectX 10 in Windows XP. I'm interested in doing so since I'm soon going to be purchasing a DX10 video card. How do I do it?

Ahh. This makes my recent (Today) purchase of Vista Home Premium all the better. I was just making sure before I eventually put it on my PC.

Choc, I remember you saying that it is possible for XP systems using DX10 capable vCards can have some kind of coding change to make it give the same result as DX10. It was in a crysis thread.

Actually, it is possible and there are a fair few groups working on achieving such things.

However, I would definitely not recommend doing it as the XP OS would completely bottleneck itself unless you had an absolute beast of a computer.

Yeah, you might as well just install Vista. It really is a much better OS now after the many fixes and SP1. I don't think i could go back to XP now, it just seems so ugly and clunky after using Vista for so long.

I've had vista ultimate since pretty much day one due to my xp dieing and I couldn't get hold of a copy to put on so I got vista and I'd agree with you until sp1 came out, its faster and smoother. however you really need 4GB of RAM, dual core and at least an 8series nvidea GPU to benefit from it truly and get the most of the features out of it smoothly. e.g dreamscene. but It runs perfectly fine on my 2GB of RAM, duel core and a 6600GT (which I really need to upgrade sometime soon).

Revenge, don't judge until you use it and use it more then once for a few hours... Vista is a much more stable, and more reliable OS then XP is
