Directx 9, Direct3d and OpenGL

A couple of basic questions:

1. Should I download Directx 9? Any games require it?
2. What's the difference between OpenGL and Direct3d? Which has better performance?

Thank you!

  1. Currently no games need DirectX 9, it´s really up to you if you want to install it. I haven´t had many problems so far.

Neeyik is an experienced person, and that post brings it together quite well.
