    I have just installed this platform update. I was a bit nervous about having to install SP2 first though as when i tried this when SP2 was first released it gave no end of problems like the BSOD.
    I am curious to see what differences it will make in the upcoming DX11 games.

    Hi Phil,
    don't forget though buddy that you'll need a DX11 capable card... Are you considering investing in one soon?

    Earliest dates suggest Q1 2010 although ATI has had their version out for the last few weeks..
