  1. Nope! Motherboards are general. It the GPU that decides what DX version would you PC support. So GTX460 supports DX11, hence you would be able to play DX11 games.
  2. o aight sick man thanks
  3. yeah your GPU and your OS are the only factors and of course if your running a very old CPU it may have issues with dx11.

    vista and 7 will run dx 11
    and xp will go up to dx 10 i believe
    and your CPU looks to be fine.
  4. For the Whole Picture:
    1) You need Windows 7 or Vista with Direct X11 Window Uodate.

    2) Direct X11 Video Card (ATI -5xxx or higher or Nvidia GT/GTS/GTX 4xx or higher)

    3) A video came that is Direct X11 compatable.
  5. any suggestions on a game that does
  6. Metro 2033, for example is a DX11 capable game.
  7. Yep. You should be able to play DX 11 games with your setup.
