New PC with directx10?
I'm looking to buy a new PC and have read that it should support directx 10.
Looking on some big manufacturers web sites, only some very expensive Dells
seem to. Can I buy any fairly high-spec PC with Vista, chuck in a directx 10
graphics card and I'm done, or are there any other things to worry about like
the chipset? Thanks.

Re: New PC with directx10?
You only have to worry about the chipset if you want to enable SLI or
Crossfire. I have an old Pentium 4 computer (about 4 years old) and I just
bought a AGP HD2600 Radeon graphics card and replaced my old graphics card.
I now have DirectX 10 graphics.

Yes. You can get a fair DX10 from newegg.com for around 100.00
