Default Re: What to do..

Hmm, I thought that DX10 was needed, otherwise the game would play slow. Also, UT07 won't need DX10 will it?! Will a single X1900 XT be powerful enough for DX10 games as well?

UT2007 will most likely support DirectX 10, but not require it. Most games coming out next year will be the same way. A single X1900XT is going to last you a long, long time assuming you only want to play with DirectX 9 settings. The capabilities of DirectX 9 have been mostly used to thier potential, which is why we need DirectX 10. (and because Bill Gates needs more money)

To show you the difference between the 2, here's a comparison:

Edit: Looks like UT2007 will NOT support DirectX 10 according to this article
