Graphics Cards DirectX 10 or 11?

Post by meatwaud27 » Tue Oct 12, 2010 9:37 pm

hmm just wondering what every ones opinions on DirectX are. if you are willing to fork over the money for 11 compatible cards or not.


such as a lot of new games are still using DirectX 9 and not 10. plus you can save a lot of money going with 10 cards such as the Nvidia GTX 260 and 280.

Yea i agree DX11 is nothing but a show boat for now even when it is full developed it wont be much better than 9 or 10, hell even the difference between 9-10 is barely noticeable

yea, especially when you can go out and buy a 1792 MB VRAM Nvidia GeForce 295 CO-OP graphics card for the same as a GTX 470.
