If I fit an older graphics card that was enhanced/capable for DirectX 8, and I install DirectX 9.0c will this be a problem?

The machine is only running basic MS Office apps, nothing else.

(the reason I want to install DX is to see if the graphics in Word and Excel look and work better and quicker)

It's on WinXP SP1

directx 8cards work fine with dx9 installed,although i can't imagine dx9 will enhance your image quality,i would instead look at video drivers and settings,and/or a different monitor....
