    According to this nVidia GeForce page that video card/adapter was designed for DirectX 11:
    GeForce GTX 560 Ti and GeForce GTX 550 Ti
    Either the card won't support DirectX 12 or nVidia hasn't made newer supporting drivers for it.

    If it says Fermi, chances it does not yet support it. Make (brand, not chipset) of the card. Like this you can see mentioned Fermi.

    Hi in order to see what level of direct x your card supports, please click on the display tab. Like so. It will list all supported dx versions.

    As the drivers update, so will the compatability for current dx versions. Right now it's up to nvidia to add support.
