Well than i think i wont wait on DX 10. I don't need super high end graphics, i just wanna be able to play games on reasonable settings with no lag, unlike the card i have now. I think it's a geforce 5200. I have to turn the settings all the way on low in every game i have, and most of them still lag
And i play some older games like Halo pc C&C generals, and i recently got Americas army(got it for free on at fort knox on vacation
) I don't even try americas army anymore, it lags...
As far as Halo2 vista goes, as long as i can run it on at least medium so i can see all my bullets, and have good fps ill be fine. I plan on buying an x1900gt, i assume that should do me well for a while.
