Default dx10 with XP?

Quick question for you guys. If I get a direct X 10 video card, will it work with Windows XP or will I need to get Vista for it to work to it's full capacity?

You will need Vista to allow the full potential of the DX10 video card, but will work with XP regardless.

A DX10 card will work with XP, however you CANNOT use any of the DX10 features.

Since the only thing stopping Direct X 10 from coming onto Windows XP anyway has gone, I don't see why sometime in the future, other than marketing, why it can't come onto XP.

Yeah, I figured that dx10 wouldn't work with XP. That sucks a lot because one of my friends has Vista on his laptop and I think it's so overrated. Microsoft bring dx10 to XP!

They should pack DX10 with SP3, but don't know yet.

Microsoft is scheduled to release SP3 for all versions of XP in the first half of 2008 (supposedly). The beta version is out now for developers only. The only interesting new feature of XP SP3 I know of is the support for NAP (Network Access Protection).

Here's the official roadmap:

And the 100 or so hotfixes that will be worked in with SP3.
