Theres not going to be a dx10... it's basicly going to be a dx9.0d with a different name.

They will most likely PCI-E.
I doubt they will dump that so soon.

Not exactly I was just making sure that the new cards are going to be PCI-E compatible but your question is good too.

Well wasnt the Windows Vista DX (Codename Longhorn) gonna be DX10 or Avalon? Everybody was saying it was gonna be DX10 and the desktop was gonna be an all new interface and everything and will take advantage of the PCI-E 16x graphics blah blah. If Vista is running an optimized 9 still then there is deffinately no reason to get it PERIOD.

umm. all current mid to high end cards DO run at 16x mode... they just don't use all the bandwidth.
