Direct x is just a driver program/software, any graphics card can run on direct x 9 u just have to download the latest drivers for ur Graphics card that make it Direct x 9 compatible.

The Key is RUN WITH DirectX because they are suppose to be backwards compatible. However, the purpose of DirectX 9.0 is to take advantage of features that todays video cards offer, as well provide new code for videocard manufactures to design new features around.
