DirectX10 and VectorWorks

Does anybody know is Vectorworks 12 have been coded to take advantage of the new DirectX10 compatible cards? If not, does that mean there will be a very limited advantage in upgrading to a 8800 card?

My main worry is that it would be more economic to get a second 7950 card rather than buying a new 8800 card, mainly as I won't be playing any games that require directx10 (for the forseeable future at least).

A single 8800GTX is faster than two 7950 GTs in SLI. Getting a 8800 over a second 7950 would be a better upgrade since the benefits of SLI vary.

Would love to get the 8800GTX, but it is about £200 more expensive than the 7950 (and I'm not sure what the resale value for a used 7950 would be). If there is no significant gain from the DX10, i'd rather save the money.
