what is your deviceid? There are many missing and wrongly named entries in the wined3d pci device list.

why they don't use 
is beyond me.

There is in particular a check for a set of directx 10+ cards in the code that on failure defaults to the GeForce 8300GS.

Tweaking that code with a patch might get you some results (or not).

If you want to play with the code yourself I can give you more pointers into the code.
