Both have pros and cons, however I think that the direction Davy is going, by incorporating the correct version in the installer is probably the easier option, even if it makes a 60+ MB download, these days most people have a reasonable internet connection speeds, so this wouldn't be a problem downloading such a file.
Or create 2 installers, one with direct x and one without. This way if you already have Direct X or are upgrading you do not need to download such a big file and save his bandwidth.
