So its goign to be in the new video cards?
The new video cards to be released by end of the year will be directx 10 compatable.. If you want to play games in directx 10 then you will need one of these new video cards and you will also need the new operating system coming out soon. The directx10 drivers are included with the new operating system..
The directx10 video cards will only be able to run dx10 on the newer dx10 supported games also...
You can play any game with a directx10 video card aswell it will automatically force the game to run in directx9 if its an older game..
Really directx10 is mainly for the "Hardcore gamers" that wants to be able to play the "NEWER" dx10 games at high settings and with all of the eye candy..
If you aren't a Hardcore Gamer dont worry about getting a dx10 video card or the new operating system right away..
