How do i know which one is displaying the right version of directX ?

i have ASUS K42JP, with AMD Radeon HD 6570M (2GB)
this is Performance info, in system rating window which says directX version is 10

and here is dxdiag which says its version is 11

my question is which one do i believe????

Oh ! and one more question please
here's the display page of dxdiag, which shows memory of 1702MB, in 64-bit, while once i put 32-bit in it and it became about 3500MB, how do i increase it? i mean it should display the shared system memory which is 3765MB
i have installed the graphics display !

thank you alot, i hope my thread is not duplicated because i searched for a thread like this in google and didn't find help !

Windows 7 comes with DirectX 11, everyone has it regardless of the graphics card installed. Your card only supports DicrectX 10 thus can only use the features of that version. But what is supported and what is installed is two different things.
