Hi all, Dumb question but due to PhD have pretty much been out of it for 5 years or so playing on an ancient rig that can do mid quality settings on CoD2, painkiller, unreal tournament 2004 etc. Getting a new rig for x-mass end of PhD and still quite like a few of the old games like CoD TOCA race driver and even KOTOR. I have also recently read about some old games that look like fun such as Dark Messiah. My question is are there patches outt here for older games to play on a new vista 64bit rig with a HD4850, Q6600 and I am unsure about directx9 vs 10, should I just stick to 9 for now or do I have to switch between them when I want to play brand new stuff like farcry2 and/or crysis. I don't even know how to switch between them or if you can, so keep answers simple please.
