There's no DX10 patch until near the end of the year. It should come out right before the Adrenaline Expansion pack.

If you tweak the settings right FSX runs pretty good. I'm getting about 25-27fps in the shot below. I posted my tweaks here. The best thing you can do for performance is to disable light bloom and set water no higher than Low2.x.
