i'm new to this forum.

And I have a question according this topic:

I have the same Motherboard as the Threadstarter and i want to buy a new graphics card:

The Radeon HD3450 Pro, and now i want to know if i will have DirectX 10 support on this mainboard or do i have to update my bios?

Or should i buy a new mainboard which has DirectX 10 support?

Sorry for my bad english i'm from Austria.

Thanks for your answers.
