Does an 2d game programmed in directx8 need an 3d card, unlike directx7 (=>directdraw) wich only need a 2d graphic card? Sorry for bad english! :-)

Yes. If you want to use DX8/D3D8 for 2d, you''ll need a 3d card which supports Direct3d.

Not true !!!

My GF just got a computer from her work which is brand new.
A 800 mhz (IBM) with built in gfxcard and soundcard. It does not do 3D in hardware.

Sure all hardcore gamers have cards which can do it. But it all depends on your target consumers.

Hi,
You mean all programs that wrote by DX8, must run on 3D graphic card ? just 3d card?
