I've installed Direct X 8 on my machine and have found that it hasn't screwed anything up in the last 4 days I've had it on my machine (installed in saturday.). I've noticed a decrease in load times for some games and a slight increase in frames per second even with my slow processor (P3 clocked at 300 because I need a higher wattage power supply). I recommend the upgrade.

Eh? Intel made PIIIs in a megahertz under 533?

No it's really a 600, but since my Powersupply doesn't produce enough wattage it can only go to 300.
