Which DirectX version to go with Tags: Graphics Cards Compatibility Directx Graphics Last response: June 27, 2006 2:38 AM in Graphics & Displays Share cpres June 27, 2006 2:20:00 AM I have been doing research on various video cards (talk about a challenge) and I am trying to figure out what is the difference between DirectX 9.0 and DirectX 9.0c. Are they the same, backwards compatible, etc... Any details would be great.

What cards do you have in mind? cpres June 27, 2006 2:34:41 AM Don't I wish I knew what I had in mind...this is a challenge. Basically I am not a game player (I will play on my PS2 for games), most things I run will be office apps with also watching some DVD and things associated with it. But I am looking at ATI cards (that is the motherboard type I have), but trying to put this all together is a challenge. Any thoughts on a decent low level card (max price $100) that will give me decent performance.
