Default Dx10

When DX10 arrives, will it be possible to run DX10 games on a DX9 board, assuming you install DX10? Or will they run only with a new GPU?

Directx 10 games will just run in directx 9 if you don't have a dx10 graphics card. Although you cant just download directx 10 if your not using vista, so if you continue using xp then directx 9 is all you can use anyway.
