    A question about Direct X11 & Shader 3.0?

    Hi! In the next month I will upgrade my video card from GTX 560 to GTX 680. But I just want to know if this card has that shader thing? Because when I download games from steam or buy them on a disc. It asked me in the requirments to have either shader 3.0 or directX11. This is the link for my GPU that I will get.
    http://ca.asus.com/en/Graphics_Cards...TX680DC2T2GD5/

    Does this card support that higher shader? Because I don't have much information about these 2 things. Thanks alot

    Jeezx your old card must be quite old, Shader 3 came out in about 2005/6.

    Both those cards you listed support Direct x 11 so support shader 5 and therfore shader 3 also.

    Whats the rest of your PC specs?

    Both GTX 5xx and 6xx cards support DX11 and Shader Model 5.

    DX10 and DX11 require Windows Vista, 7 or 8 to work. (So if you are using windows XP you need to upgrade your operation system.)

    DX11 does support graphics cards with shader model 3 upwards if developer creates different code path for them.
    Thus some games require DX11 with Shader Model 3 as a minimum. (and thus Windows vista/7/8 as well).

    Thank you for clearing that out. I was scared and misunderstood about that. I didn't know that DIRECTX11 meant that it supports higher shader 5.0. Because by next month I will buy GTX 680 ASUS 2GB. Thanks again.
