well, for exemple, in Counter Strike i always used OpenGL but is D3D better ? and why ?
I use the OpenGL API option for UnrealTournament and I get much, much better framerates. I have heard, for most games, with GeForces, this is the way to go. Direct3D kinda sucks on my box for some reason, at least compared to OGL in UnrealTournament.
