NVIDIA DX10 cards?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
when will they be here? it seems to me like its a waste of money to buy a video card or even a computer at all right now unless you need one. (im not telling you what to do, mind you) with vista requiring direct x 10 for full functionality, not to mention the supposed performance increase of the new direct x, id like to know when these will be available. if vista launches early part of 07, wouldnt you anticipate the hardware to be released in advance? i mean, youd THINK it would, but that doesnt always matter in the business world. im open to guesses and rumors.

[QUOTE=Windows Vista
NVIDIA offers a complete top-to-bottom line up of NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics processing units (GPUs) that will take full advantage of the new Windows Vista™ features and functionality when the final OS is released. You will hear a lot about new PC’s and hardware for Vista in the coming months. The most important thing to remember is that to take advantage of all that Windows Vista and the applications and games for the PC has to offer, make sure that your PC has a dedicated graphics processor, such as the ones found on the BFG Technologies graphics cards listed below.

BFG GeForce 7 Series
BFG GeForce 6 Series
BFG GeForce FX Series QUOTE]

So...these things confuses me.....most people says that the current GPUs won't be fully functional with Vista...but Nvidia says...it?

DX9 cards will be compatible with Vista, but to experience the full performance of Vista you will need a DX10 card. These are not out yet, and I dunno when they will?

It pisses me off because I am planning to build a computer in the upcoming months. I can wait until July at the latest. Now is possible the worst time to build a computer. Once you get it, it will already be outdated. With Vista, Dx10, dual-cores, quad-cores, and every thing else, it is hard to plan ahead until I actually get there. One guy told me to build a system now and wait for the new cards. Well, how long will that be is the question.
