It wont be a huge amount better than DX10 anyway.

BTW, with an 8800gts you get 5.9 in graphics rating? I get 5.9 with my 7900gs...

5.9 is the max bud. It doesn't really take an awesome graphics card to do it either...

5.9 is the max? I thought it went to 10 or something. I just thought mine would be considerably lower than an 8800gts.

Nope. I remember Raffaz's 6800GT even got a 5.9.

Probably because the desktop Aero interface doesn't need as powerful a graphics card as people once thought, and so even older cards, get a high rating

This number however does not specify how well a card will do in games, and games built into Windows Vista, as a 6800 I'm guessing, would throw a lot less FPS, than a 7900 for example, even in Chess, and the other games available.

I dont really care, cause it wont be a huge difference in DX10 and 10.1. DX10 is good, my 7900gs is puts out some really nice graphics, its getting to the point, where how much more can I want? Graphics are nice, sound doesnt get any better now, physics are improoving tho. But there isnt a huge amount more too do.
