    I am pretty sure Win 7 ultimate can use DX10. Try installing this driver: http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/59641. Go to a custom install and chose the "clean install" option. If this doesnt work, I would recommend getting at least 1 more GB of RAM since a 64bit OS can easily take advantage of more than 3 GB.

    So what happened 5-6months ago? That's a pretty low-end card and now very old, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's holding you back in games.

    Maybe they deployed a patch or something. I would say get at least another GB of RAM since a 64bit OS requires more RAM.
