There are basically only two (maybe three settings if you consider the "very high" shadows) settings that hurt DX10 performance and that is the high quality motion blur, and object blur. If they are not important to you, you can disable them and should have quite similar performance with DX10 and DX9+custom cfg. Last month I have played the final level at 1280x720 with 4AA and all DX10 settings and while I didn't fraps it was enjoyable and I'm certain the average was higher than 20fps.
