    dxdiag is saying DX11 because your OS (windows 7) supports DX11, its not a referance to your cards direct X capabilities.

    If a game supports DX10 and you have a DX10 card then the game will run in direct X10 mode.

    Just to be clear, you need a DX11 OS and a DX11 graphics card and a game that supports DX11 to use DX11 features.

    You can tell some games to run in a certain DX mode by going to START>GAMES>RIGHT CLICK ON THE GAME>PLAY DX9/10/11
