Default Dx10

OK I want to have a DX10 GPU. I will buy one when it comes out. I do not want to buy Vista to use this thing. When I want new gamers I can get vista. But chances are i'll be just fine with BF, CS, and GWs. Now I was wondering will DX10 GPU work with XP? Does anyone know..

Yeah, they'd make it backwards compatible. Unless they really want people to buy Vista =[

I heard DX10 won't work with XP, I just want to know if a DX10 GPU will work with DX9 and able to run XP.

I just want a DX10 GPU that will run with DX9 driver so I can run in it windows and upgrade to vista when I feel like it and not have to upgrade to a new GPU. My next GPU i am waiting for DX10.

a dx10 gpu will work with xp, but it will not be able to play games that require dx10. that would need an upgrade to vista.

DirectX 10 should be back compatible with DirectX 9. It eases the transistion for most users. So it should be fine if you have a DirectX 10 GPU, but you're running DirectX 9.
