see here:
is directx 11 backwards compatible to directx 9 games - Microsoft Community

you can run earlier games in compatibility mode, via a right-click on the shortcut

..with specific games, it may be necessary to get onto the game's website/forums
to find out the best compatibility settings, but there is also a list here:

yes i know y its backwards compatible, bu that does not explain why its still lagging. idk for sure its even directx, however i noticed that DX11 games DONT lag, and DX9 do.

I went and nosed around a couple of other forums I belong to, don't spend much time at them because this ones the best hands down, but couldn't find anything we haven't tried already. P.M.'ed someone on my "gamer" forum (Asus' Republic of Gamers) about it. Still waiting,but that forum isn't really active at least for this kind of thing. I'm at a lose but if I hear anything I'll post.

*&$^%#$*@# saw you posted again and was hoping you'd solved it. My friend on RoG forum didn't have any ideas we haven't tried already. O.K. back to square one. You say its an external GPU? Have you tried a different interface if so? What kind? If external, is it usb3 compatible, assuming you have a usb3 port. If so are you using that? How about the chipset for your MB or CPU? Nvidia has a new WHQL release but I don't think it would apply to you, but might be worth a look. Have you tried any of the Beta and/or Legacy drivers for Nvidia : Drivers | GeForce

i believe its an internal driver conflict between the directx versions. ive been screwing with drivers and installing different ones, and i installed a mobility radeon 4530 driver, and the performance increased dramatically! but still lags a bit, so im still messing with drivers, and see which ones i can install and try. otherwise is an ATI 6770 GPU hooked up to the Express card slot on my laptop via PE4H adapter.
