The Visiontek Radeon HD 4850 Video Card - 512MB GDDR3, PCI Express 2.0, CrossFireX Ready, (Dual Link) Dual DVI, HDTV, HDMI Support, VGA Support. It is directx 10.1 compliant.

So, if I install this on Windows XP, with DirectX 9.0... will it perform poorly because it is expecting 10.1?

Or should I just shell out the money and get Windows Vista?
