I purchased BC2 Friday on steam, my 5870 was delivered the same day, and I'm having issues. The DX 11 version looks the same to me as DX10, I'm assuming it's running DX11 now that I installed the 5870. There is nothing in the options switching it to DX11?

And I haven't been able to play online at all this last weekend. it keeps saying Failed to connect to EA online. thought maybe the servers were down but reading through some threads here it seems like everything is dandy for everyone else.

As far as I know, the only DX11 effect that is noticeable is softer shadowing. It's a shame really that they didn't include the whole bag that DX11 offers. So really, you aren't missing out on that much.

Vista does not have Dx11.

There may be a DX11 vista hack, but idk anything down that line
dude microsoft made it legit. it is in like a service pack or something....but it is totally legitimate.

it was on auto and did change it to 11 before the creation of this thread and still noticed nothing different.

Going to try the platform update and see if that works.
