    Default Direcctx12 video card

    This pc rebuild for Win 11 is turning into an expensive exercise. It needs to support Directx12, but all the video cards I've seen cost an arm a leg and a bit more. Any suggestions for a reasonably priced Directx12 card?

    Well, that's the question, isn't it? I'm not fussy. The requirements are minimal apart from Directx12 support.

    You don't need expensive or Fancy Cards. This PC here, W10 has Direct X 12 installed Via Windows updates, and only has a crappy old GT 730.

    Something basic like the ASUS https://www.asus.com/nz/Motherboards...030-SL-2G-BRK/ Says its Direct X 12 and its around the $150 Area ( give or take)

    Some Shops wont have many options as there's a shortage of Chips World Wide, BUT right at the moment One of my Suppliers has 30 of them ( for how long who knows, could all be gone by tomorrow)

    Weird. I had that one in mind, but the guy from Elive said it didn't do Directx12.

    You don't BUY a DX12 card, you have a card, and update to DX12....it's a gaming thing mainly.
    DX is always changing, nothing to do with the hardware.....
