DirectX 9 games on DirectX 8.1 vid card?





sunjay
hi all,

I would like to know if a graphics card that says it supports DirectX 8.1, would it be able to play newer games that uses DirectX 9?

Yes, but it will be slower and less quality.

What the game *should* do is scale back the quality. I.E. all the features of DX9 would not be visible. One of the things that always seems to occur is the water quality. It looks significantly better in costal areas with DX9. I mean if your looking to buy a new card...make SURE it supports DX9 and opengl 2. Whats the point of buying a new card if its not new?

it's Cheaper?

If you on't require the newest of th newest and you don't bother not seeing some effects. A cheap DirectX 8.1 Card is reasonable
