Im confused on Some directX stuff
I know that sound cards and video cards have directX # compatibility on them. Right now, i ran some command in run, and it showed my directX (9.0c), but my video card only supports 6 or 7, its stock intel integrated. Im running a game on it now that requires directX 8.
Now, is directX 8 requirment for windows? Is that 9.0c it says i have installed windows version? And when theres just a directX requirment, not directX # ###mb video card required, theres a difference?
Basically what im asking is, is the 9.0c i have a windows version of directX just for the computer, then some games need a certain direct X either on the computer, or they require a certain version of directX on the video or sound card?
