This is from Tech Powerup with Republic of Gamers skin. I thought it looked nice.

Seeker, there is a newer driver than you have, it's 270.61, dated 4/7/2011.
I tried that Asus skin, before going back to the regular. For some reason it wouldn't display the full window, thus some of the data wasn't accessible.

I'm not too concerned about driver updates at the moment, because I should be starting a new build very soon, and will have to start from scratch anyway.

interestingly GPZ reports unknown for graphics card in the dx box - how does that work ?
As smarteyeball pointed out, DX11 cards showing up as DX10 cards in WEI is a bug that's been in 7 since 7 was 7. Nothing we can do about it; nothing to worry about.

As for your issue with gpu-z, click the link in Britton's post... right above yours. It's the latest version of gpu-z, which will report your card correctly.
yep used the latest - see here

hmm... a quick google search seems to indicate there's no support for the 6770 yet, but it should be supported in the next release... which should not be too long.

Here is my Direct X Diagnostic Tool report:

It says that I am running Direct X version 11.

Now when I open Windows Experience Index and click on 'View and print detailed performance and system information' a report is generated and it says Direct X version 10.

So can you tell me which one is correct?

Yours sincerely,
