Default Directx10?

I have just received my 8600GT, it seems my games have been running weird, Its hard to AA in CSS and COD2. Havent tried this with any other games yet but i was wondering, is it cause a DX10 card is playing DX9 games?

I don't think you would notice much slow down from a DX10 playing DX9 games.

What was your old card, before the 8600GT?

In terms of raw performance, the 8600GT is only slightly better than the 7600GT. I would think that it would play about the same.

Did you update the Nvidia drivers? If you are using old ones they may not work well with the 8600.

I guess the problems went away, the latest drivers off the nvidia site best?
