Listen, they say DX8.1 becuse it is RATED for 8, but can run 9. DirectX is a way to catorize video cards. My card is a DX9, and every card above it is DX9. diricetX is basicly to say you can play DX9 games with decent settings. whereas 8.1 say you can play diriect 8 games with everything on, but DX9 games on a 8.1 will not have some fetures like SM2.0+

This is the thing, you are buying a totaly obsolet card. I bought my GFX card for 50$+9$ shipping on ebay. and it runs things great. It runs AOEIII @ 1024x768 Medium settings no lag. Look on ebay for a geforce FX card or ATI Radeon 9600.
