    Questions on system specs for DX10 and upgrades

    Post by Hexium on Fri May 23, 2008 12:35 pm

    Will Vista be worth it when AoC goes to DX10 or rather would it be worth revamping some stuff to use DX10?

    my setup is as follows:

    Intel Quad core 2.4 Ghz processor
    MSI Aseus motherboard
    4 gig ram
    150gig hardrive
    "1" 8800 GTS XFX

    second question is if i do go for the DX10 spec im already able to use it but would it be smart to grab another 8800 GTX XFX card to SLI dual them ? or would it be better to buy a 9800 series card?
    any suggestions would be welcome!

    personally i wouldnt spend an extra dime (outside of building a system that i already needed) for that type of upgrade (dx9 to 10) but maby after seeing it i will change my mind.

    granted i built my system to specifically run dx10 so maby i'm not one to talk Smile

    I have heard XP does not utilize the quad core well, is that true?
