Closed DirectX 10.1 upgrade Tags: Graphics Cards Dell Graphics Last response: January 30, 2012 2:21 PM in Graphics & Displays Share george p66 September 30, 2010 8:21:16 PM hi, I have recently purchased a gt 220. I run it on a dell optiplex 760 (MT) windows xp intel core2duo E8400 4GB memory Dell OM858N Mainboard At the moment i have Dx9 on xp platform. my card is compatible with Dx10.1. If i switch to Windows7 and run Dx10.1, will it significantly improve my graphics. for e.g. being able to run cod mw2 on high setting, fallout 3 on high settings, etc... please help, thank you in advance.

Yes DX11 generally allows for better lighting, shadow, and other effects, but honestly a GT 220 is a bit to slow to allow you to appreciate them.

Because it supports dx10 and the low end 200 series supports dx10.1 What's great is, it can run games with dx10.1 but at a low resolution and lower setting.
