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.

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.

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.
