Why do they have the 7900 there? Popular non DX10 card I guess? I just wanted to see my card but I know it's always 10 fps less than the GTX per resolution in all the other benchmarks I've seen for bioshock and whatnot.

I have no clue about vista so I'll save that response. I'll be running XP for a LONG time.

Vista is the current only way to get DX10 going. So if it needs it then it would be worth partitioning your hdd or getting a second drive and installing vista on it to dual boot whenever you want to play a DX10 specific game.

Ummm 6fps and a little prettier.... I know where Windows can shove vista, shouldn't be hard to get that view. Their head is already there.

Not just a little prettier. DX10 lets you do stuff too. Like in Crysis for example, only in multiplayer DX10 mode can you destroy environments.

Yeah but most developers aren't going to use it for that, because of how poorly Vista is being adopted. It's not even being adopted that quickly via piracy.

Well - you could implement such functionality (destructible environs) without DX10, but it would be more work (and less efficient) on part of the developer.

These stats are good, though and will probably improve as graphics cards devs optimize the drivers for Vista. I'm still in no rush to get it - DX10 enabled hardware is going to remain relatively rare and underutilized while developers get their heads around the technologies and until more people adopt them. Though, with people rejecting Vista for XP seems to suggest this may take a while.
