Upgrading to W 7 would make sense, if your XP box can even run W7, since DirectX 11 is not, and will not ever be, offered for XP.

Get the free W7 Upgrade Advisor here:

TIP: Your ATI Radeon 5770 will still run under XP, but, with limited features.

DirectX 9 was the last version of DirectX to be officially supported on XP. For DirectX 11, you'll need to upgrade. You could always look for a modified version released by the community, but it will obviously not be supported by Microsoft, and most likely won't run properly.

Direct X11 is only available on Windows 7, Windows Xp only supports Direct X9

Directx 11 might desire to paintings on XP . i think of you have different problems if abode windows is using all your reminiscence . I run 7 ultimate and it basically makes use of around 6-seven hundred MB. whilst no longer in use .attempt unloading a number of the courses which you have on startup to unfastened extra reminiscence .
