Is it possible to Rollback from DX9 to DX8

  1. I am in 2 minds whether to install DX9 on my machine which is a
    P4 2.26/256/GF4
    I have just got the new 3DMark 2003 and 4 of the tests do not work unless u have DX9.

    I heard somewhere that once Dx9 is installed you cannot rollback to DX8 not even using System restore.

    How stable is DX9??

    DX 9 should be fairly stable now, i got it running on 2 sytem

    g4 4600 ultra and a 9700 pro - not 1 problem yet.

    I use ME and I have used system restore twice to rollback to DX 8 with no probs(was trying different drivers and such).Just make sure you make a restore point before you install DX 9.DX 9 didn't really improve anything for me(made BF1942 run staggered-no matter what drivers used) and there's no games using it at moment AFAIK.
