Click the "Start" button, select "Run" in the Start Menu, then
type in "dxdiag". The DirectX version should be stated at the
bottom line of the "System Information".

graphics cards are supported?
We have tested a wide range of 3D graphics cards on a number
of different platforms. If your graphics card support DirectX
and 3D hardware acceleration, it will most likely work.

Support for Windows 95 has been dropped by Microsoft with
the release of Windows XP and DirectX 8.1. We only support
DirectX 8.1 or higher. Also, DirectX is not supported on
Windows NT 4.0.
