No, it does not support DX9.

You can install DX9, but the card won't be able to support any of the extra features that DX9 has because it just isn't capable of such.

No current game makes use of DX9 on any large scale.

umm feigned im sorry but i need to correct you I went to the Visiontek website and the 9200se fully supports DX8.1 and DX9

Just because you can install it doesn't mean it's going to use the hardware features of DX9 worth a shit.

Pixel Shaders aren't that huge of deal with today's games...give it six months and you'll wish you bought a 9800 series card.

im sorry in an earlier post i mentioned my pc didt have agp slots and in another six months ill have a new pc

Sorry. The Xtacy 9200se does indeed support Pixel Shaders. Thief : Deadly Shadows will not play without this technology and I'm playing it just fine. ;)
