And they've said in the past that DX10 only takes DX9 and improves it slightly. Just like 10.1 is doing to 10.
Bioshock is actually one of the first games to come out with DX10 support.

i saw a youtube vid. that showed a big daddy walk into falling(rushing out of wall)water and the water didn't just go through the big daddy like it would in most games. it actuallu went AROUND the big daddy. plus i know that the water physics, body physics, and other things are GEAT in this game. can i get that same power running dx 9? im hoping that dx10 jsut makes the deatail a bit better. PLZ HELP!!
Just as a heads up, There are some SERIOUS issues involving the Vista's DirectX 10 compatibility with the game atm. IF you experience a crash shortly after the "bioshock" logo, find the shortcut on your desktop, right click > select "properties" > In the end of the "target" field, after the endquote, type '-dx9' (without the apostraphes seen here). This will force your game to run in DirectX 9 (even if you're running vista + 8 series card). It will resolve the issue, but be aware, doing so CAN cause rather unsightly texture-death to in game models.
My suggestion: Wait for 2K to bend to the will of hundreds of gamers crying out from game crashes and make a worthwhile patch. GAME IS BUGGY.
