My System Specs

Default DirectX 11 for Vista.

Don't know if this has been posted yet but DirectX 11is out for Vista on Windows update. The catch is because you have to run a script that changes some registry values reboot and then go to windows update then the update will show up. I believe you to do this because Win7 is not out yet and Microsoft won't release the pacth till then?
Anyway gave it a try last night and it works, ya I know my vid card is only DirectX 10.1 I was bored .

Note: This is not an DirectX 11 install package that was floating around the web, it is available on Windows update, do not I repeat dot not download any DirectX packages from the net other than from Microsoft as there has been some that were fake and contained viruses.
