Default About DirectX

Hi!

I have a Nvidia Gforce 4 video card

As far as I know Using the latest Detonator drivers, they are compatible with DirectX 9 but I think directX 9 is fully compatible with Gforce FX

Or is DirectX 9 compatible with Gforce 4

I mean

If I have Gforce4 Should I use DirectX 8 or DirectX 9?

I have noted strange behavior with DirectX 9


Thanks
Alex

Use DX9. DX9 adds features that the GF4 can't take advantage of, but it doesn't matter; it'll use DX8 features instead while providing you with helpful bug fixes and performance increases.

And there are some games that require DirectX 9 to be installed. It won't improve performance a whole lot on non DX9 hardware, but it won't hurt anything either.
