Can i run these games without upgrading my pc? What pc do i need to run these games? And does Directx 10 games have better grafics than the ps3 and xbox360 games?
Well, the 7xxx series is DX9 hardware. It won't be able to produce the DX10 and SM4.0 effects due to its hardware limitations. These games will probably all run in DX9 mode w/o all the bells and whistles.

And as for the other questions, that's really all subjective. DX10 will be able to produce some advance effects that the Xbox 360 isn't capable of since its hardware is DX9 IIRC.

Are you sure that Crysis, UT 2007, and all the others games can run on DX9 with a 7900 gt? And I want to know ,Does the DX10 games has big difference in grafics than the DX 9 games? And what monitor do i need to play a DX10 game with perfect grafics? I have a PHILIPS CRT 17". Does it work with a 8800 GTX? Or do i need to buy a new one?(It is very old you know).

Effects like motion blur, depth of field, better/more detailed (soft) shadows, better HDR will be rendered with DX10 cards much faster than with DX9 cards. Its possible that these hybrid DX9/10 games will keep such effects only within the DX10 paths (for marketing, or performance reasons) but if you dont care too much about effects like that, then your computer is perfectly fine for the games in this thread.

Yes of course all the games in this thread should play nicely on your 7900 and possibly at 1280x960 with a little bit AF/AA. This is a rather huge guess from my side, so your best bet is to wait for reviews and benchmarks of these games.

Your monitor is fine as long as you are content with its native resolution and yes a G80 will work with it. I personally would not play at lower resolution than 1280x960 but thats just my opinion.

Alan is a horror writer suffering from writers block. He moves to the country for inspiration. However he soon finds the creatures in his imagination and nightmares are becoming real.

Well thats what it was when I first read about a year or two ago.

Yes, I think the 360 has a unique API that is roughly DX9-based yet has certain DX10 functions but is not DX10 compliant. I think at best it will be able to emulate some DX10 features seen on later Vista games. As to whether DX10-only PC games will be able to run on the 360, only time will tell. People said HD was impossible on PS2, yet we got GT4 1080i.

Bring on 8800GTX!!
