    The Inquirer is not necessarily a good source of information but the reality is that there are always going to be new things in the world of computing. Even if the DX10.1 thing is real it is not a big deal. Most games we now have are DX8 or 9. Do any games even use DX10 yet? Your video card will still work just fine with the new standard although there may be some added eyecandy that will not show up untill the DX10.1 cards are used .... by that point maybe there will be a DX10.1C that requires even newer cards to get the full benefit.

    This is a well know fact for some time. I have not advocated purchasing a current DX10 card for some time. BUT, game developers have hardly cared about DX10 since a huge amount of games do not want Vista and won't be running DX10 anyways. The 8800's are still extremely powerful for DX9 games, and it will work well for years to come. But noone should be surprised for a second that DX10 is already obsolete. And Prariedawg is 100% right. All levels of DX have done this.
