FSX vista and DX10
I'm looking to possibly upgrade hardware but I read FSX was designed for DX10 since this is only thing they had to work with no dx10 this may be simple bs or better yet even if you run fsx on dx10 it can look better but no benefit substantial enough to make sure you get a DX10 card. I personally don't mind waiting and getting VISTA as I've had problems with being scammed when purchasing winxp (it was a pirate version I paid full price for). Anyway is upgrading a good time now or should I wait for the whole dx10 thing and vista.
What are your experiences from what you read on these issues? If dx9 is enough for fsx why bother getting vista and/or expensive dx10 cards which will only be worth the cost in 1 year at that point we all know a new FS is in the works and maybe that one will be dx10 fully compatible because they could of designed it and tested with dx 10 in hand. As for an operating system being compatible like VISTA that is alot easier then claiming the game is designed for dx10. Because an operating system needs drivers a game on the other han if it was designed at 128 mb graphics it won't look or get better because you have 512mb card, 128 was enough. (this was just an example)
I've been away for a while so I wanted to catch up on the latest stuff.
