directx 11.1 compatible motherboard

First I had the Z97x fat killer in mind. I was told an Asus would be more durable. The Asus I chose isn't directx 11.1 compatible. I want this for Arma3. should I go back to the Fatality Killer. The motherboard needs directx 11.1 support,SLI support, and be around $220 australian

  1. Motherboards dont support directX ANYTHING

    Your graphics card either will or will not , and that and the operating system you use, are the determining factors

    NOT the motherboard
  2. Your GPU has to be DirectX 11.1 compatible, which is virtually all current GPUs on sale today. Your motherboard just connects the dots.

    That's the CPU's specifications, which includes the Integrated Graphics Processor's specs as well. It still supports DirectX 11.1, but I would advise on a mid-range GPU for a much, much faster solution.
