Exclamation Do NOT upgrade to Vista SP1

It appears that the newly released service pack work M$ windows Vista (SP1) carries with it a small but significant catch. Within the patch there lurks a small change to DirectX10 (10 - 10.1) which seems to negate nVidia altogether. See link.
Vista Service Pack 1 comes with an important update for gamers - DirectX 10.1. The catch? You need brand new hardware to support it, and NVIDIA enthusiasts are left totally out in the cold.
Although DirectX 10.1 is fully backwards-compatible with DirectX 10 features and hardware, the reverse isn’t true. Neither NVIDIA’s GeForce 8 series nor ATI’s Radeon HD 2x series of GPUs support DirectX 10.1. ATI’s new products – the Radeon 3870 and 3850 – do support DirectX 10.1, but NVIDIA apparently has no plans to release a DirectX 10.1-capable GPU.
Scared? well don't panic yet - links further down the page seem to suggest that the problem has been solved for now... watch this space (and have a nice cup of camomile)

just like the update from DX9 to DX9c 99.9% will not be affected.

yup - I over-reacted a bit... I saw later that the incompatibility issues are irrelevent since, like with any other drivers... if your hardware can't handle it, it ain't an option.

bet I got yah sweating tho'
