Depends if you meet the minimum system requirements.

Codemasters reveals the specs for the PC version of their soon-to-be-released racing game, DiRT 3:

Minimum System Requirements

OS: WinXP, Vista or Win7
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 2,8 GHz, Intel Pentium D 2.8 GHz
RAM: 2 GB
HDD: 15 GByte
Gfx Card: AMD Radeon HD 2000 256 MB, Geforce 8000 Series 256 MB

Recommended System Requirements

DirectX 11
OS: Vista or Win7
CPU: AMD Phenom II or Intel Core i7
RAM: 3 GB
Gfx Card: AMD Radeon HD 6000 Series


Just because you meet the minimum requirements does not mean the game will run smoothly on low details.

Yeah, Win XP only supports up to DX9 and Win XP is listed as part of the minimum requirements. Dirt 3 should run fine on your system.

DX10 and DX11 are Microsoft's incentives to get gamers to upgrade to Win Vista / Win 7.

Just avoid any games that has dropped support DX9 if you want to continue playing games with Windows XP.

For example, Just Cause 2 and BattleField 3 have dropped DX9 support, so they cannot be played on a PC with Win XP.
