A lot of people tell me DirectX is a lot faster than GDI, and so does every game programming book I've read, so I don't doubt it. But where exactly does it start to slow down? I'm not trying to make Quake IV, will performance be the same in small, 2D games (noted that there are less 'features' in GDI)?
