I just found this, can someone dumb it down for me?

what does this mean!! o.o

DX10 = good.

DirectX10 lays down specific rules so that developers know exact what is allowed and capable. It also increases the limits of DX9 and simplifies some code for better performance

So basically once DX10 comes out, I will be seeing a performance increase in DX10 + DX9 games?

I wouldnt say that youll see an increase in performance. Remember that game developers have an idea of what is optimal for game play and they expect to hit that mark with a given set up every time. What this means is that they will increase the things on the screen so that the performance drops to that desired level, but you will get more wonderful visuals. Dont expect your FPS to go up, expect it to go down as it always does with a next gen of games comes out, its just going to look far far better than a normal jump in gen games does =)

I agree with earlier posts (dealing with the main subject), don't just jump to consoles. Reason being, computers are always upgrading, some 6600GT's can still run new games at low settings, meaning that your 8800GTS should be more than enough to last for a while, even into the DX10 era. The thing is if you ever think "damn I should've waited" it'll never end because there's always another powerhouse coming. I regretted my 7900GTX at first, then realized every game I run I max out, and I'll be able to run most games at high or med-high up until the DX10 games come around . . . so when you have the money and you want a new card, you should just grab it. Same with almost any other PC component.
