Never.

Windows XP is not and will not ever be DX10 compatable. DX10 is for Vista only. M$ has said this for the longest time now.

Direct X 10 will be Vista only
DirectX 10 to be Vista-only (in case you didn't know)
X-bit labs - Microsoft Will Not Release DirectX 10 for Windows XP Ė ATI.

Not as far as i know. Halo 2 says it is only for Vista. There is no compatability for XP at all. So it looks like M$ is forcing the hand of gamers to upgrade.
