You would be surprised what an optimized engine and clever use of textures can achieve in DX9 - most people think that new DX revisions means better visuals when in reality it isn't just about visuals but an improvements for developers and speed more than visuals. Nothing wrong with DX9 games - in fact we only have a handful of DX10 games and most don't even take full advantage of the visuals yet!

Yup DX10 and DX11 for the most part are not about improving visuals. They add more tech for developers to work with. Now as far as physics and clouds and stuff like that DX10 is much better but for texture resolution it doesn't matter much. We just need more powerful of computers to still take advantage of DX9.
