DirectX 10, 11 etc...

I own a homebuilt system that is currently running Xp pro SP3. I recently bought a new video card ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127484 ) at the same time I decided to play a new MOO that requires Dx10 to be installed. My question is this:

Can I safely install directx 10 or 11 on my system?

Where do I find the downloadable executable install file?

Will upgrading the DirectX in my system cause any problems with any current programs I'm running on my system (mostly MS office, a Couple of MMO's and a stand alone game or two)?

Thanks for any help that you can give me.

  1. XP doesn't support DirectX10 or DirectX11. Your new video card will still run fine, it just won't take advantage of the DX11 features.

    So I guess this new MMO that I want to beta test (Mortal) is out of the question then? Every time I try to play it I get an application start error because the executable cannot find d3dx10_41.dll. Thanks for the info though.
  3. Is this the game?

    It says it's compatible with XP and DX9.
