Pretty sure both games will be in DX10, however, they will have options to run on DX9. So, there no need for Vista unless you want DX10.

Only Vista can enable DX10, but you'll need a DX10 card as well.

Hellgate: London is DX10.

Crysis is DX10 and DX9. So, if you're on XP, Crysis will still work, but without the eye candy.

I've repeated this so many times. DX10 doesn't have that much of a graphical lead over DX9. It's just that the shaders are optimized for better performance (so they say). Lost Planet tests show different however.

Everyone goes on about DX10 owning all. It hasn't proved itself very worth thus far. I will be one of the suckers getting Vista just for Crysis, -- if DX10 doesn't work right I'll be very ticked off.

The reason I think DX10 games are coming out with better graphics is because DX10 "SUPPOSELY" makes the game run better, so they have DX10 only features, because theres no way they can be handled under DX9.

However with the cascade demo and lost planet demo, I think DX10 is a major flop or they need MAJOR driver improvements.

(I get 16FPS in DX10 and 50FPS in DX9, on the same settings and theres absolutely no difference in the graphics.)

Yeah -- that makes sense. Or does it. Let's optimise the DX10 engine and allow game developers to cram more and more graphically-sided things in, forgetting about performance, killing a game! Nice move Microsoft
