Hey guys I have an Alienware M14x R1 with a GT555M Nvidia card and just did a fresh install of Windows 7. I am not a big gamer, but I play World of Warcraft a little bit and was wondering what DirectX I should install for my computer?

More about : directx

Windows 7 installs directx 11. Along with components from directx 10, 9 and from some earlier versions. You'll be fine playing wow.

If what xtreme5 said is what you meant about playing the game in directx11, you'll need to follow some intructions to tell the game.

Actually, use DirectX 11. Just using the API doesn't increase visual quality and decrease performance. Actually, if rendering the same thing, DirectX works way faster than DirectX 9. Of course, if you crank up the settings when changing DirectX at the same time, it will hurt.

You can set to use DirectX in WoW options.
