Question about XFX GeForce FX 5200, Graphic Card

1 Answer

DirectX 8.0!? I went to and bought XFX Geforce FX 5200 PCI (and all that happy crap that follows.) and one of the specifications on the box was supporting DirectX 9.0, but to my very (tierd) eyes it shows up as DirectX 8.0 on every single game!

Re: DirectX 8.0!?

The card itself does support directx 9. Make sure you are fully updated to the latest version of direct x and using an updated driver.. The fx5200 isn't a very powerful card, though it can support dx9 functions it won't be doing them very fast. As long as you can play a directx 9 game I wouldn't worry about it at all.
