    Why? DX8.1 was what shipped with the very first release of XP and even going back to DX8 is extremely hard and NOT recommended. DX9c includes support for all previous versions of DX.

    Thats fine, as I said DX 9 is backward compatible and works with old cards supporting older versions of DX. You don't want to revert to an older version of DX.
