Saints Row The Third Direct x 10/11 Issue

ok so I try to launch Saints row the third in direct x 10 and it instantly crashes not sure why because I have direct x 10 and I play modern warfare 3 absolutely no problems and that requires Direct x 10
I can run it in 9 but its choppy as all hell and I cant seem to play without hardcore lag when I try to coop

Any insight would be great.

MW3 last i knew used DX9 not DX10.

We need to know your full PCs specs.

If you dont have the right hardware a game will not run.

This and Deus EX have the same problem, you need to flash your BIOS if you are dealing with the trash known and Gigabyte motherboards.

AMD bulldozer processors need some special instructions that only the beta BIOS has.

This.

FWIW, both SR3 and DXHR run fine on my H67 based Gigabyte board. However, it's true that many Bulldozer systems require a BIOS patch. And if you're running a prebuilt system, good luck with that.
