Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.

      Wouldn't Premiun PC's have GPUs that have DX10 on VISTA if the minimum is DX9?

        Who has a 1Gig processer nowadays? And with a gig of RAM at the same time?

        3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.

            You only need DX9 to run Aero Glass.

                not really sure, with all the games being released now that are not Direct x 10. I havent heard any game or apps thats are going to use the new directx...so right now nothing that i know of. Its supposed to completely redo how a computer processes a game video and stuff. Really supposed to optimize the hardware and software together to create a better system

                Whats gonna be cool is the fact that windows explorer will unload from the system when a game or app loads
                that sounds like a good idea trooper.

                  I've heard that Hellgate, FlightSim X and the new Crysis game will use DirectX 10 if available. They all support DirectX 9 too.

                              DX10 will increase the preformance of games and introduces Shader Model 4.0.
