i figured it might be done to appeal to custom builders such as i who are in this predicament of wanting to build a pc without getting outdated. i would assume directx 10 would run on windows xp just not with the extra features it offers, or so thats what i took out of the articles i read. thusly saving you money on buying two graphics cards. so i figured chipset manufacturers might want to take advantage of this and rush directx 10 gfx cards to consumer availability. ah well, guess ill just go with a cheap pci-e like you guys reccomended.

edit: jeeze you guys respond fast, its monday. dont you have work or school or something? :-P
and thanks for the help kchi55, appreciate the quick response, you probably saved me from wasting $300 on a gfx card now.

Oh...well...still. I see no point in spending over $500 on a very good video card now.

ive had my card since last summer now and im happy with it since its powerfull enough to last me until vista, that reminds me i gotta give that beta version a try, anyway as for your question yes there will be cards supporting directx 10 before vista but its backwards compatable so when u play older games it will use directx 9

I think i'm going hold off my GPU upgrade now and forget teh G7 series and jump right into the G8. I'm sure there will be lower end D10 cards too.

fisher, don't worry about it, that x1900xt should still play decently on dx10 games, at least that's what i've been hearing.
