What do you guys think with all this bad talk about directx 9.0 with my video card. Should I install it or keep 8.1?

what bad talk with your video card?

 

I have a geforce3 ti200 which doesn't support dx9, but i installed it anyway (9.0b). I haven't noticed any problems with it. It's always good to keep dx updated whether your card supports it or not, cause some games may need it. At least that's my thinking, i could be wrong.

I don't know if you guys have heard or not, there are rumors going around that Asus will be making ATI based cards instead of Nvidia. I wonder if this will come true or not and if its because of Nvidia's recent problems with their video cards not performing? I guess time will tell.

Graphics no longer the main focus of NVIDIA??

that is a shame :( but ati is also looking in the same direction too. they've got a chipset for both athlon and P4 systems in the works, while Nvidia has stayed with just the athlon. wonder what they'll do if ati beats them there too

I smell the winds of change a' comin. Can you say nvidia/ati merger? (i know you cringe at the thought) Im not saying this would ever happen in the darkest of all universes, but, stranger things have happened. And remember, no-one thought nvidia would ever Gobble up the graphics "giant" 3dfx. Something to think about.
