What is the best version of DirectX? I'm asking this, since I've heard that DirectX 8.0 and 9 BETA are causing quite a lot of problems with some chipsets...

lol

the last directx build is 8.1 there is no 9.0.

where you read this.

the 9.0 will be released on beta in 2002-2003.

9.0 is just the new directx that microsoft plan to do after.

it's far to be release

I'm running a Durn 800MHz that is guaranteed to 1GHz by the company I bought it from yet I still run it at 800MHz. Probably because I don't really need the extra speed as it is my graphics card that is holding the system back now (Voodoo 3 3500).

i guess this really depends on what drivers you use though!

I say DirectX 7! DirectX 8.0a isn't bad, but version 7, I find, is more stable for me! Mind ya, I got 8.0a on my computer right now!

Yeah, there are no proper drivers for Voodoo cards in XP, and probably never will be. Bit of a shame really!
