Hi peepz! Im having a major issue with Direct x 10 and i would appreciate it if you helped.

(Before we get started my O/S is Windows Vista Home basic 64x)

Now on to the anoying part, Everytime i try and play a DX10 game, the game only picks up 9.0c, for example i booted up Killing Floor and stalker (clear sky) and they only picked up 9.0c, but when i run dxdiag Vista picks up DX10.

Ive also tried downloading DX10 from the DX download manager, when i try to d/l it, it says there is no further requirements to upgrade DX10.

Now ive ran all the games in admin mode, same thing.

I have also downloaded the latest forceware drivers from Nvideas homepage, no change what so ever, Crysis is running in DX 9 and i have no option in game to switch to 10.

This is REALLY anoying because i just put together a nice rig.

Hardware specs:

Motherboard UD5 Gigabyte i7
CPU: i7 920 2.66ghz (clocked @ 3.86ghz)
HDD: 1TB Samsung Spinpoint 32mb Cache
Ram: 6gb Viper DDR
PSU: 850w Corsair

I would really appreciate the help here guys, im a nub to toms hardware but PLEASE! HELP ME! :cry:
