GTX460 1GB.. GPU-Z shows DirectCompute checkbox disabled

I didn't even know that it was supported until I saw a screenshot of GPU-Z by someone else who owned the same card as me. I've reinstalled the drivers multiple times.. the CD that came packaged with my card won't read on my damn DVD drive (only wants to read CD's at the moment :()

Idk what it does, but if it's a feature I'm somehow missing.. I'd like it back. Any ideas? Faulty card? I did a search in the forums and google but found nothing..

my specs:
q6600 OC @ 3Ghz
2GB DDR2 @ 1066Mhz
Windows XP Pro SP3
PNY GTX460 1GB Stock
antec neo 550w psu
asus p5n32-e sli mobo

    It looks like you are using XP, you need DX11 installed in order to gain that feature if I remember correctly. Vista and Win7 support that feature. I only use xp on my older machines.
  2. Oh ok there we go. If that's the case then it's not my card, just my OS. Thanks

  4. Yes, that's the case. Though I believe DX10.1 has some version of it as well, as my 4850 (DX10.1) has a DC 4.1 checked in GPU-Z. However, Vista or 7 is required regardless, and you are not missing anything.
