Early adopters are always penalised, we all know that.
i got this system because of its power in DX9, and ended up with one of the fastest DX10 rigs by luck. (i've had this GTX a very long time now)
We need games made for DX10, not games patched to add it in later. Its like physx - at the moment, games are made first then the physics code is patched on later, leaving us thinking Physx is crap. All we really need is one good title and DX10 gaming would take off.
Look how cheap some DX10 cards are lke the 8400 and radeon 2600 series. If DX10 games had been coded properly (so that say, DX10 on medium was faster than DX9 on medium) then the majority of users WOULD be able to upgrade easily and join the fun.
