I usually won't try betas for things like API's. My neighbor currently has it running and so far hanbs't had any crashes he can prove where dx9 caused it.
The thing is this...dx9 won't improve anything that current games use really. it's basically just adding features for the future and such and making minor improvements to the dx8 implementation for cards that fully support dx8, other then that it won't offer any sort of performance boost
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
