Both OS and your graphics chip are actually able to run dx11 on and usually dx11 is better optimized to fit hardware and software past the dx9 era. (Windows XP)

If you have all drivers up to date, dx11 actually should run better. But there always have been some combinations were you lost FPS or had other problems with dx11 on some games.

 

So there is really only the option to try it out (best done with replays, since you can fiddle around with your graphic options in there)

Could be. Maybe just try it for a few games (or replays) and watch your FPS

 

What's your operating system and videocard?

If you are using win 10 OS, you should stick to dx11, due how data protocols changed trougout the years - basicaly there are no aditional conversions needed and your pc specks are utilysed to the max. The only real benefit  to get more frames in older games like Quake 2 is to get win 7 pro and emulate win xp with dx9. It's arguably only useful only for 32 bit system based games, thats why win 7 pro is the cherry OS to support old and new games alike. Sadly there is no such thing as a perfect console game emulator, because console hardware design is totalty different from PC's.

 

As for WoWs, it's engine clearly utilyses dx11 and the game is graphics heavy already.

Kid's nowadays wouldn't find the appeal of our old graphics we were used to :p
