    and not arse with dx10/.1?

    because i just bought my bro bits for a gaming pc and ive got a 4890 vapour for it, opened it just to check if it had power cables. i never realised the 5850 would be only like 35quid more and out this soon.

    im thinking if dx10 is a fail as i keep hearing will game makers just sack off dx10 and go straight to 11. if this is the case i may aswell send the vapour back and get a 5850 because its quieter cooler faster less power and has dx11.

    i cant see them bothering with 10 if 11 exists, or am i being silly because im not too clued up on all this

    Well yeah they should skip straight to DX11 and I would have thought a lot of developers would make the push to DX11 as DX9 has been stagnating things me thinks, time to push on!

    But then again they may think what's the point until the new consoles are released which will no doubt support DX11

    If you have a DX10 card already you will still benefit in DX11 games as most of the features are backwards compatible I think as long as you have Vista or W7

    Yes. Win 7 is a winner and 58xx DX11 is a winner too.

    Apparently, nVidia are going DX11 too.:p

    If you only just bought the 4890, then yeah, you might as well send it back and order a 5850.

    Best to contact OCUK themselves on that I think. I reckon they'd be happy to swap a 4890 and £35 for a 5850, but I don't know how the procedure works.

    I bought a 600w psu and was disappointed, they refunded it asap and upon returning them the psu they sold me a 700w without worries. It wasn't RMA because the psu worked but didn't meet my requirements.

    Check their sales policies and see if that helps mate.
