I am wanting to upgrade my Dell XPS 710 to a QX6700 Extreme CPU and a GTX-8800 VGA. I am also thinking of upgrading the OS from XP to Win 7 64. The specs on the 8800 say it is DX10 compatible. Isn't Win 7 DX11? Will the GTX-8800 work in Win 7?

Okay thanks a bunch. According to that link I should be fine with an 8800GTX in Win 7.
