    Everywhere I go I keep hearing people say that if you do not have a Geforce
    8800 you will not be able to experience the graphic qualities of DirectX 10.
    Yet I have 2 7950s ussually set to SLI and my dxdiag says that I have DirectX
    10. I can't imagine that they would call DirectX 9.0c DirectX 10 on peoples
    computers. I am also experiencing some weird glitches in computer games that
    are descriped in a few of the hotfixes for DirectX 10 cards yet it says that
    these updates don't apply to me. Has my computer somehow fit through one of
    the cracks and how do I get out because I would take stability and
    performance over graphics quality anyday. The feeling of paying for 7950s and
    then they crash in game is not a very good one.

    Dxdiag is reporting that you computer has software support for DX10.
    However with out a graphics card that has hardware support for DX10 the
    software support does you no good and you can not play DX10 games.

    Im still kind of confused is there anyway to revert to Direct X 9.0c? Since
    all Vista Computers come with Direct X 10 everyone sees DirectX 10 under
    dxdiag?

    You don't have to do anything, as Vista also has DirectX 9. In fact, that is
    what Aero is based on. If you are getting poor reliability, I would look into
    heat and/or power problems. And to a lesser extent, driver issues, though it
    would be easy to try newer drivers just in case.
