well windows xp only has directx 9. you need vista to actually use directx10. Performance would be hard to say, you would get directx 10 effects (which are ment to be more effeicent), but would depend on they rest of your computer and the game/app

Yeah, and you need Vista SP1 to use DirectX 10.1.

Performance would deal with you PC. If you upgraded to vista, then your gaming experiance for games that support DX10 would be more realistic. :D

Hello,

I was in the same Situation as u i think, i was really happy with my xp but really wanted to see the differences from my card from DX9 to DX10 from Vista, so i installed it.

I really have to say since i play on Vista (and i really had problem to get Vista run like the way i want it) it´s really more realistic, hehe, in some games i even get a bit higher frame rate in Vista 8-) weird lol.

Please dont be mad for my bad english , i really try to learn it atm lol

Have a nice day,

As far as I'm aware, there is no game that supports Direct-X 10.1 as of yet. Assassin's Creed used to, but support was removed in a following patch.

And the visual difference in most commercial games (ie, Crysis DX9 vs Crysis DX10) is minimal at best.

It may take a few years for Direct-X 10's potential to fully be realized in software.
