I think he was asking about games without a DX9 or DX10 path, in which case, no, you'd need to upgrade.

That being said, DX9 isn't going anywhere anytime soon, so don't worry about it.

As far as i know, Alien Vs Predator and Lost Planet 2 are direct.11 capable games, but they also support directx.9 in case your card doesn't support dx.11...
So, don't worry about that, get that dx.10 card. :)

If a game needs a DX11 card as a minimum requirement, then a DX10 card will not be able to play the game.

DX10 & DX10.1 should be around for at least a few years. DX9 has been around since the end of 2001 and it has only just begun to be phased out. I forgot which was the 1st game to drop DX9 support.

answering directly your thread title: no

like others said game still build around DX9 and DX10, mostly on DX9. so maybe it will be a few years before we can see DX11 exclusive games. lol we might even see DX12 coming out first before that happen :na:

A few years later? Crysis 3 has a direct x requirement of direct x 11. Meaning it won't work on direct x 10 cards.
