Haha. You guys are a joke.
Whatever factual information you have tried to convey in this thread is lost because of your childish bickering amongst yourselves.
Anyways - DX10 cards will still run DX9 code. Fact. If they don't, games will not want to be made in DX10 mode because they wont sell to much, cept the highend buyers. No games will be written for vista for a while because it will blow for at least a year.
So really, by the time Vista gets its **** together... programmers learn hot to write the new efficient 64bit code... also learn how to write for a new DX version... your looking at two years... minimum, from now.
Don't buy a DX10 card until vista actually works with them nicely. You'll need at least a basic Service Pack out before Microsoft works.
For that reason, the debate is useless, card manufactures will be making money on overpriced cards that won't even USE the DX10 until vista works right with it (and some of you will buy them for XP when it will only run on DX9).
