Except for Crysis and Halo 2 and Flight Sim X and Shadowrun and Alan Wake and Hellgate and UT3 and Spore and more. And supposedly at the end of this month mid range DX10 cards are coming out for both nVidia and ATI.

when are these games comming out? i didn't know flight sim X had dx10.

EDIT: regardless, i didn't know there were that many games with dx10 on the way/out, so i apoligise on that. but i think i will wait for dx10 to go mainstream for cards still.

Yep the 7200go will be more than enough to run Vista in fact, I have heard that even an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 900/950 which is the slowest integrated laptop graphics chip can run Vista Aero fine.

I have an HP Pavilion 6174ea laptop: which has the 7400go and that ran the vista rc1 very very well.

Good chioce the 7400go will also be able to play most games at low/medium settings actually it also manages to run my train simulation games on the highest settings without much slow down although thats under XP, I don't have a copy of vista yet to try them on.

DX10 IS here. There's the top line cards. You are probably talking about diversity of DX10 cards.
