    So, i am mainly wondering if the 9800 series cards coming out will work with my Abit Fatality AN9 32X motherboard. Also if anyone knows if the AN9 32X is even Vista and DX10 capable? So, based on my specs listed by my name, can i run vista and DX10 if i just get a new 9800gtx, and leave the rest the same.

    If you really want to run vista then I guess you won't have a problem (at least with your hardware specs). Many people CAN run vista but choose not to.

    well, you have to have vista running to have DX10 right?

    Yes, DX10 isn't supported on xp. DX10 also hasn't provided any great visual improvements over 9 and as far as I'm concerned its nothing to rush out to get right now.

    Also, when DX10.1 comes out, the current DX10 cards won't support the new features, so you will have to upgrade your card again in order to receive those benefits.

    I'm wondering if this will become a trend, with every new program release a hardware upgrade may also be required.
