Hello,
I have a VGA graphics card and just downloaded directx 11 for my windows 7. I read that VGA is not compatibile with directx11. Is there anyway I can play my game using the current system? I have restarted the PC but when I turn the game on it keeps asking for directx 8.1 or higher. Please help

So the term "VGA" stands for something along the lines of "Video Graphics Adapter"

as long as your card is newer than ATI/AMD HD5000 series, or Nvidia's GTX400 series they all support Direct X 11

What you are referring to is a crosscheck inside the program to make sure Direct X is installed on your system and that it is updated to at least version 8.1

if youve already installed direct x then you can forego this process

here is the site to download the latest end user runtime

HI CG Gamer, thank you or your response,
I have already intalled the direct x 11 from the link you have enclosed.
I have also checked that it is installed on my PC (cross check).
How do I check that VGA is newer than ATI/AMD HD5000 series, or Nvidia's GTX400 series?
It doesn't seem to do the trick at the moment so I can assme it's not?
