of all of the sites that offer direct x 11 for windows xp, do any of them work?

rather than build a whole new rig, i just want to upgrade what i have for now, i will build a new one after windows 8 comes out.

here is what i have
windows xp 32 bit service pack 3
dual pentium 3.0 gig processor
3 gigs of ram
radeon 5570 vid card
1 tb hard drive
430 watt psu

right now this is fine for some light gaming, but wont play games like skyrim or modern warfare 3.
it uses directx9.

i can improve the card right now, get either a 5770 or 6770 since they are dropping in price, but cant utilize their direct x 11. is that even worth it?

If i built a new machine, would get a quad core processor, 8 gigs of ram, probably a radeon 6850, later on maybe crossfire it with another 6850.

if i can get direct x 11 on my current setup, i would just get a 5770 right now. then build a new setup in a couple of years.

I would not use any of those hacks. If you REALLY need DX11 support, build a new PC and install Windows 7.

These hacks normally do more damage than good. Avoid them if possible.
