Every man and his dog seems to be waiting around for mid-range DirectX 10 parts from both ATI and Nvidia, but neither has actually announced anything on that front yet. If you’re not looking to upgrade to Windows Vista any time soon though, there is still plenty of life left in Windows XP.
You see, the clever bods at Microsoft decided to make DirectX 10 a Vista exclusive feature and thus if you want to experience some of the marvels of DirectX 10, you’ve got to buy a copy of Vista too. To most, the cost of Vista is something they hadn’t really taken into account when they’re planning on upgrading to play some of the soon-to-be-released DirectX 10 games in all their glory.
