Smoke effects and shadows are all that are noticeably better in DX10.

It lets you custom config every button to do whatever you like, and set deadzones.

I was able to play HL2 using the 360 pad, right analog controller mouse, left analog for wasd, and other buttons and set as well.

It's pretty solid.
i got pinnacle game profilier which does the same thing but thanks for the advice

I'm 2 minutes away from having the demo of Bioshock to test on this machine

Meanwhile, I've almost completed FEAR for the first time. I've had it a while, and tried to complete it 3 times (1st time, it got deleted. Second time, computer wouldn't run right). Now, I'm going to complete it. Oh yes!

EDIT:

Its downloaded!

Bioshock is a very weird game... don't really think its my cup of tea really. Seems to...sureal, I guess is the word.

I was running at 1680x1050 no problem though, with full settings, minus Direct X 10 effects (On XP). Only slight judders, but there was something about using beta drivers to run it?

FRAPS didn't seem to work on the demo
