Take this with a Pinch of salt as they use the expression ''WE HEAR''<br><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">WE HEAR Nvidia is working hard to bring a DirectX 10 part to the mainstream market. Once Vista is out and real and we guess that will be during January, there will be a huge gap between the DirectX 10 API and the hardware that supports it.<br>
At that time Nvidia's G80 boards - Geforce 8800 GTX and GTS - are going to be the only two products to support Direct X 10. ATI's R600 is delayed until at least February, while G80 launches on the 7th of November just some three weeks from now.<br></td>

Not all true. There are times when there news is good however lets face it everything is there first even if its a rumour which could always turn true.

I am so excited that they are being stupid and releasing the hardware before the games will support it. It will drive the prices down! You watch they release it and the DX 10 games will be pushed back.

I'll wait until some of the Hardware Zealots sell their first generation DX10's a month after they come out in the Sale/Wanted section for $100 less.

Just a witty comment to the things being said about DX10:<br><br>
Wouldn't it be an absolute laugh if somehow it ******i-fried an 8.1b ready card?<br><br>
I know it wouldn't, but it's something to ponder. Whether or not it actually helps the graphics flow for older cards is completely up to the eye of the beholder. But, for anyone running a 9.0a or better card, I'm sure you'll see improvements in leaps and bounds, depending on what's actually under the hood.

</div>You can get a DX10 card and run it on Windows XP <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
It'll run DX9 games well until DX10 games are out... gives you time to save up for Vista
