Default ATI videocard for Vista

I have been a user of ATI videocards for graphics and video capture
for a long time. But that was under the operating system XP. Now that
Vista has been released, I am wondering if ATI has released any
videocard compatible (for DirectX 10) and tested by Microsoft for the
new operating system. Has ATI released the drivers for capture and a
Multi-media Center along with the driver for the new videocard?

..
You do not need a DX10 card for Aero Glass effects in Vista. Aero's minimum requirements are a DX9 card with pixel shader 2.0 and 64Mb dedicated video RAM. The DX10 API s is primarily for gaming in new titles like COD4, Bioshock and Crysis to name a few. And currently, the visual differences between DX9.0c and DX10 are very minimal. The performance hit gaming in DX10 (which by necessity means using Vista) is not minimal. ATI and its manufacturing partners have a number of 3000 series DX10 cards with excellent graphics VIVO ability as well as DX10 good gaming power. But it's quite possible the card you are currently using will work just fine . What are you using?

The original post kinda make my head asplode. How does someone
logically decide that it's necessary to go to a Usenet newsgroup in
order to find out if one of the top two display adapter/gpu companies
(ATI now owned by AMD) produces hardware compatible with an operating
system from Microsoft that's been out for over a year? I typed in
ati.com into my browser and two clicks later I see "Experience the power
of HD Gaming with DirectX® 10.1." under the description of one of the
cards they sell. Another couple of clicks and you've got all the info
you could want.
I'm having trouble sleeping and might be just being a bit snarky but the
original post should have been prefaced with, "I'm ignorant, just
crawled out from under a rock and I'm incapable of using the world wide
web, let alone google."

Yup. Snarky. I know this because your description matches half of
usenet...

Well, the Internet is just a series of tubes invented by Al Gore, nothing
useful.

One very good reason for posting the question in a Usenet newsgroup
is to get a response from individuals who may already have gone down
this route, rather than rely on the often optomistic claims by
manufacturers about drivers and compatibility.

One very good reason for not posting the question to a Usenet
newsgroup is that there always seems to be at least one intolerent
idiotic individual who wants to make fun at someoene else's expense.
