    Does anybody have a link which compares a directx9 games running in directx
    8 mode. I'm interest in seeing the visual quality difference between the two

    The reason I ask i that I have just brought Max Payne 2 and have a radeon
    8500 which handles the games admirably at full graphics. Just curious to
    know what the game would look like on a 9500 or above.

    DX9 titles will not work with DX8.

    DirectX 9 titles don't work with DirectX 8, true. If you're referring
    to Microsoft's DirectX layer.

    But the OP is asking about running DX9 titles on DX8-class hardware
    (with the DX9 runtime installed, of course). Whether the DX9 eye candy
    makes it worth upgrading to a DX9-class card.

    My brother in law plays maxpayne2 with a radeon9500.
    It looks about the same on my TI4400.
