Windows Vista Flip 3D?

Do you need a high grade graphics card to use this function? I heard you need Directx 10. Is this correct?

Thanks

You do NOT need a Directx 10 card for the Vista 3d Flip, it just helps, any of the modern cards would do, but if you are getting a new card go for one with Directx 10.

My old video card, before Vista was released (512 mb) worked great.

If your graphics card is upto running the Aero feature in Vista...it will run the Window switcher.

If in any doubt,run the upgrade advisor click here

This would have been better in the Vista Forum but regardless of that you do not need DirectX 10 but you need a decent card but not a high grade one. As skidzy points out theres an upgrade advisor you can run.

This function will not work is you have a high performance setting on your pc, it seems to only work when the pc is set to best display or let pc select the best setting. please correct me if I am wrong!

I've a crap cpu with just 1Gig of ram and onboard graphics ( 945 chipset )from that one Gig on a laptop.

It runs aero and flip with ease.

So you don't need a card, onboard will do. Just remember to minimise the windows so they will flip.
