Yah, I didn't notice much by way of differences. Better FPS with dx9 and I think some bump-mapping, shadows and water might look a touch better with dx10.

I think the game looks awesome whether zoomed in or out

But then I like the game itself. YMMV

-edit-

I take it back. There is a HUGE difference in some of the environmental effects.

The water difference is actually night and day. I have no idea what I was smoking when I said it looked similar
