You have discovered what we all have....All versions of Vista ship with DX 10! New graphics cards are required to run applications that use it, but you can still run older DX9 applications if your graphics card is up to it...try downloading and installing the latest drivers from your cards web site...make sure that they are Vista compatible.

It took Nvidia long enough to get sli drivers sorted for Vista, but you may be looking at a world record...they should have done this by now really...hope you get sorted soon.
