    Is anyone here running the DX9 beta on Windows XP? If so, has it made a difference? Did it make a difference in Gaming? Thanx

    you need to have dx9 components to run dx9 to its fullest though it is supposed to make some nice improvements for most gfx cards :)

    the thing is... its a beta... so I gonna wait till the full release

    old cards like G-force 2 won't get anything from DX9, it's for the newest cards such as ATI 9700 or the new nvidia card.
