Actually, I already have it. Just not registered.

What I was wondering was...

Will the GF8 series be able to play older games, such as DX8 and older titles? Cause I still play some such as 4x4 Evo2, SoF2, JK series, DF titles, older NFS titles, OFP + Expansions, etc. I hope that the GF8 series can still play these games without any sort of performance penalty.

I'm sure DX9 speed will be great but I'm a little more interested on how it will perform in DX10 games.Any DX10 games coming by years end?

Um, why would they? DX10 is Vista only. I'm sure they could have had Crysis out by Christmas if they really pushed for it, but nobody would be able run with DX10.

I guess if you got a pre-built system that came with Vista at the end of this year, that would work. But it seems like most everybody here is doing custom builds, as such Vista wont be available to us untill early next year (hopefully).

Next year is when we'll see a lot more DX10 goodness fo' sho'!

I definitely getting it. Dummy here just remembered it's going to have HDR + AA and likely FCAA. I think VCAA is a typo.

I hope nVidia has a driver or patch ready to go for Oblivion.
