In order to use the more advanced features like three dimensional graphics, a full display driver designed for that specific display adapter must be installed.
A display driver is software which allows other programs to access and use a display adapter.
You must have a display driver installed in order for your display adapter to do anything other than the most basic operations.
Most operating systems have a default display driver with limited functionality which will work for most display adapters.
Direct X 10 is the first totally new Direct X in the last 4 years and brings important graphics innovations that can be used by game developers for the next generation of games. If I’m not mistaken, to my best of knowledge, this is the fastest, most revolutionary and most optional “AGP” graphics card yet, since AGP cards are no longer manufactured and have been replaced by PCIe. Finally i started looking for AGP cards and found this, went ahead and bit my lip and bought this card hoping it would make a great difference.
Direct X 10 introduces crisp, never-beforeseen detail-rich images, visual effects and game dynamics capable of accurately simulating the real world. I bought this card to squeeze as much juice out of my Pentium 4 as I can, and I was not disappointed, but so impressed! I’m able to run games that are designed for Core 2 Duos and higher! Well i've been using it for 5 days now, and i will say this, it has surpassed my hopes and has probably given my computer 2-3 more years of use. BTW, for those people who want "quiet" cards, this card is VERY VERY silent. It works absolutly perfect with my CPU (AMD Athlon XP 3200 ) and my Board (A7N8X-E deluxe n Force2Ultra400)! Most I like the HDMI-output because I use my PC also for TV-Recording!
