direct x10 is already out... there are already a few cards that nvidia has released that support directx 10 such as the 8800gtx. personally i would wait till direct x 10 cards become more mainstream and go down in price and then get a direct x 10 card. do u plan on getting windows vista at all in the future? if so i would wait a while longer till the prices come down on direct x10 cards and grab one. what card do u have right now?

Currently the only dx10 cards are 8800GTX and 8800GTS. But I'd wait a while, and see if the prices are coming down. Or then wait until next summer, when nVidia is releasing their cheaper line of dx10 cards. I know that's what I'm going to do if I end up getting a dx10 card.

And also when ATI releases their DX10 cards the 8800's will probably go down.

It's not DirectX10, it's Direct3D10 that's been released with Vista as far as I know.

it'll only affect your graphics cards. I think your games will run DX9 compatible on Vista unless you have the new hardware to unlock the full potential of D3D10.

Err, no. It's Well DirectX 10. Direct 3D 10 is a sub feature for the DirectX 10 engine.

Woops! Thanks for the correction! I meant to say direct x10 will be released with Vista, but the hardware support is out already.
