    I don't think you're understanding the explanation given by Beefy. DirectX is not just a graphics-only API. It has many components, and installing DirectX9.0a (latest version) will improve many things including sound, online gameplay etc.

    Bottom line: Always install the latest official version of DirectX because it's not about graphics performance only.

    There are a lot of us out there who are running cards that are only DirectX 7 compliant who are using DX 9. We don't get to see all of the added eye candy that the new DX supplies but it sometimes stablizes and/or improves the options that are possible in some programs.

    Me too

    But, is there a "full" download? I only found a web installer and I don't like them, I prefer a single file.

    Anyone knows about it?

    I was searching for one of those also. My search concluded that there is only a web-installer, but I can be wrong. Good downloading :cheers:

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    Like we said earlier, each update will usually improve performance to some degree.

    Also, as newer games ship out, they will come with the necessary DX version that the games needs to work properly. There are already games around that are shipping with DX9.

    As for a full download, it's not really that hard to find... For those who couldn't just go <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=c46234ca-2695-4270-8e21-8a18684396b3&DisplayLang=en" target="_blank">here</a> and download the redistributable pack (about 32MB).
