You'll need it for DX 10 itself. However they do have a sort of DX10 for windows XP called DX 9L (I believe). I would use this until Vista has been fixed up by the guinea pigs.

So pretty much if i dont want to spend the dough on a DX9L that i can only run on Xp then i should just wait until Vista is all fixed up and then buy Vista and a DX10 card?

At first the 8800GTs and R600s will need those beefy power supplies, but as usual, I'm sure they will get around to releasing mid-range cards, like a DX10 equivalent to the X1600 or 7600 by the summer.
I hope anyways...
