Im a newbie and just want to know what I call to get the name of a display adapter. Im getting GetDeviceCaps() info, but what I want now is ie, ''Geforce 2 MX'' to be returned so I can loop through adapters and present them by name for selection.. Thanks in advance.

Call IDirect3D8::GetAdapterIdentifier() and pass in the same adapter number you specify for GetDeviceCaps()
