Either. XP comes with DX8, but anyone can (and everyone eventually does) get later distros. You can redist it for free with your game too, and just make it part of the install process.

Unless you need DX9 features, you don''t have to move up. But the ducs on MSDN will be for current SDKs, not previous ones.

I like pie.
