Does Kindle DX read Word files?

HI,
I am thinking of buying large screended Ebook reader like Kindle DX.
Can some one tell me if this device reads
Microsoft Word files?
How do I get my files from my PC onto Kindle dx?
Does this device reformat files into its own format?
Thanks for the answers.
Raj

Unfortunately, Kindle doesn't read .Doc or .Rtf files, so you will have to convert them to its native format Mobi/Prc, or to PDF. If your files contain mostly text the result will look nice.
Instead of converting to Mobi/Prc I prefer to use PDF, change the page size in Microsoft Word to A5, thin margins, a font without sheriffs sized 12-14. That's because Mobi/Prc are somehow (in my opinion) limited to HTML format.
You can transfer your files with a USB cable connected to your computer.
Kindle doesn't change any file you save in it. If it's a format it knows, it will be displayed.
