    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102093 is a DX9 card i'm looking at, and
    http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814121082 is a DX10 card i'm looking at too.

    What should I go for?

    Thanks
    Like a lot of people say, you should wait until the system requirement is released, because if you buy something, but it ends up not working then you're going to regret it. Overall, though, I predict that DX9 will be one of the minimum requirements.

      Go DX10 if you can afford it. Look at it this way, DX9 is old, DX10 is the new kid on the block.

      A DX10 card is going to play DX9 games but a DX9 card wont necessarily play DX10 games. Why limit yourself?

          Indeed. But XP doesn't have support for dx10, and I don't have vista cause it's too expensive and has a bunch of stuff I don't need. I hear there are cracks to allow dx10 on xp but they are cracks and are thus unreliable and I don't want to totally mess up my box.

            there are no "cracks" to allow DX10 games.

            what you might be thinking are the cracks that allow Vista-only games. they are Vista only to make use of Games for Windows Live! games like Halo2. Halo 2 is not a DX10 game.

            there's also a claim by a coder that he is making a "wrapper" for DX10 games to run on XP. personally, i don't think it's gonna work out too well... but that's my opinion.

              I see. So they haven't released the final system req's yet huh? That's pretty odd, seeing as how the current release date is little over 2 months away. And I got an email from gamestop saying the release date was pushed back from the 12th to the 19th lol. Only a week, usually it's months. What's a mere week going to give them? Well I suppose their courier shipped late so they have to give the extra week to allow for the discrepancy. *shrugs* oh well.

                  I'll be running on Linux and Windows. I use both OS's depending on the mood I'm in so I'll be sure to have UT3 handy no matter which OS I'm booted into.
