I am formatting and installing WinXP Pro. I am pretty sure it comes with DX 8.0, but I'd like to upgrade it to 8.1. I'd rather not mess with DX 9.0. Can anyone tell me where I can get 8.1?

Edit: Or is DX9 not that buggy?

it comes with 8.1

DX 9a is the second released version of DX9 so I would like to assume that it isnt "buggy" at this point. I've installed it on a couple of machines and it hasnt given me much trouble.

FYI, if you want to know what version of DirectX you are runing just go start>run>"dxdiag"
