the SDK is just for PROGRAMMING the games, its not needed to RUN/PLAY the games... I''d be amazed if any big DirectX games were programmed without the help of the SDK

for VB you only need the runtimes, for C++ I think you need the SDK - for all the headers/source files.

btw, shouldn''t this be in the DirectX Forum?

The DirectX SDK is free to download and you''ll need it as well as some type of programming language that supports COM to use it. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/directx for the SDK though it is a rather large download if you''re on a modem.
