Does your setup support DirectX 10?

    Trailer: http://store.steampowered.com/app/5471/

    I noticed this game on Steam today (pre-purchase only). I got excited after watching the trailer... this game looks like it could keep me entertained for hours at a time. But then I read this:

    DirectX 10 only, not for XP. Though, I think there is a xp-dx10 hack (at least for 64bit, which I'm using). This is the first DX10-only game I've seen so far. If this trend keeps up, I may have to withdraw money from my emergency funds.

    Edit: cant edit poll... third option should say "New card/OS soon..."

    It's much easier for game developers to develop using DX10 only. "Much easier" as in "halves the time for graphics coding".
