Which ones? It would be the death of any game to come out and not have some support for older cards. You have to remember the mainstream market isn't all running geforce 4's and up. There is a buttload of people still using a radeon 7000 or TNT video card. Drop support for those and you lose a lot of potential people to buy your game. It takes a long time before the older generation of cards become the bottom line for games. And right now most games i have seen just state the requirement for a 32 meg video card. Not a DX 9 or 8 card.
