Default Re: DirectX 10

I think if anything, DirectX 10 will allow PCI-Express cards to communicate directly with the RAM - if the motherboard allows it. Since PCI is ancient technology for computers, and PCI-Express is far superior to both PCI and AGP, it would make more sense for DirectX 10 to work better with newer cards. And I think you'll have to have at least a 6 series (if not, a 7 series) nVidia card to take full advantage DirectX 10. Though since DirectX 10 isn't technically released yet (only on the betas of Vista), I think we can all wait at least a year for better cards and lower prices before upgrading
