...Directx 8 Beta made a significant difference in my benchmarking with a CL Geforce2, heres my setup:
MSI 6167 mobo
192 megs Pc 100 ram
WD 13.6 gb hddv
CL Soundblaster Live Value
My 3dMark2000 Scores with Directx 7 were
with the Directx8 they were
I finally passed the 5000 mark, that is cool
quake 3 settings fully maxed out at 1024x768x32 with Directx 7-79.4 Fps
1024x768x32 with Directx 8-86.6 Fps.
those are my finding with Directx 8.
