Why should I give a crap about an 9800?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Didn't MS already say there were some fixes they needed to make to DirectX 10, and current DX10 cards would not be able to utilize the update to 10.1?

I am thinking about getting one, but um...I just noticed they are not 10.1 compatible.

developers said 10.1 will not be needed to run games, a dx10 card will work just fine.

I know it won't be needed, but it will be just like DX9 cards not being able to get the benefits of DX10. My point is, I thought these were going to be DX10.1 Oh wells.

There's really no point of DX 10.1 though right now.

Well with that 8800Ultra of yours, YOU might not give a darn about the 9800-series unless you want to go all out with the GX2. The 9800GTX isn't leaps and bounds better than it's older brother but it does have the ability to make a nice upgrade for someone with an older and/or lower model card.
