|It looks like Microsoft's future operating system might require some people to shop for a new video card to get the most out of their experience. While the current versions of Windows use Direct X to render the user interface, Longhorn will be unifying 2D & 3D graphics into one.. bringing 2D and 3D together.
Believe it or not, your Windows performance will depend on the quality of graphics card you have. A faster card might draw something faster than a slower mainstream or entry level card, meaning that even some Office software might perform better if you have a faster 3D card.
