I have the same thing but I assumed it was telling me my Card is DX10 and the OS is DX11.

Yep, it's like Mr. GRIM says. On the WEI details page it says "DirectX 9.0 or better" for my X700.
(Well, I wished it would be "better" )

Hi Aaron,

Showing the same on my system. What I think that it is showing is the DX capability of your graphics card (DX10) and the DX support in your system (DX11). I have just had a look through the System32 folder and, at first, couldn't find a mention of 11. However, another look has revealed this file, and I think that this is what is being reported:

The first image comes from the detailed WEI and the second from DxDiag itself.

Yeah mines saying dx10 and I agree with your assumption that its showing the graphics card's physical abilities.

DirectX10 games 60 hz refresh
Even though my monitor is capable of faster refresh rates, in many (all?) DX10 games they default to a 60 hz refresh and there seems to be no way to change it. How can we get Microsoft to give us manual refresh rate control in DX10? I can't stand it when a company keeps a viable, supported option...

DirectX10 graphics card in Win 7
As I understand it, Win7 includes DX11, which is backward compatible with DX10 cards (which is what I have - 8600GTS). However, I began to wonder as to whether or not the new DX11 could be causing the unresolved issues with crappy video quality as compared to the same exact video being run in XP...
