TF2 and Direct X 8.1

TF2 seems to think that the hardware level of my graphics card only supports Direct X8.1. I have a Radeon 6870, so...this shouldn't really be a problem.

Oh, and it won't let me do motion blur either. Is it a related issue?

One more thing. My software level does read as Direct X 9.0 in the settings window of TF2.

Make sure the game is fully patched, and all your drivers are up to date :)

download the latest dx distro and update any missing files.
this should enable you to run the game fully featured.
patching is also a good idea as your card may not be recognised by the stock game.

I checked using Dxdiag and I do actually have DX 10, according to the program, anyway. And I do have the latest drivers for my videocard.
