I want to purchase far cry 3 and from what I read it needs direct x 9 or 11, now I have direct x10 my card only supports 10 so can I revert back to 9 and if so how?

Windows 7 x64 (Ultimate)

As far as I know, and barring a patch/mod to revert back to DX9 that I don't know about, C3 is DX11 only. If you card is DX10, it is backwards compatible with all of DXs available so it should play any DX9 games
