Is DX8 worth installing on Win2k? Does it fix anything? Cause problems?

DX8 and win2k were destined for each other. My games work better, and my SB Live! works better (still needs improvement, tho).

Yep, Directx8 is sweet. Especially when you have drivers that support it.

No problems here with DX8, yet.

Dustin, why on earth are you running a Katmai on your system? That BF6 & Crucial RAM are begging for a Coppermine..

DirectX 8 is a _NECESSARY_ update to Win2k. The version of directX 7 that shipped with Win2k had a number of fairly serious bugs that are fixed with DX8. You'll see at least a 25% speed boost in DX on your video, and real hardware support for your sound card.
