What do you mean by this? Did you update DX or do you mean Windows 7 already has DX11?

Also you might look through here for some tips - Tips on Troubleshooting Game Issues

I mean I went on DXs website or whatever and downloaded the updater (I'm at work right now so I can't remember the link, exactly)

You answered my question - which is what I was hoping you meant. Good.

With that I suggest you look through my tips on troubleshooting game issues.

Good luck.

I've tried that guide before; it didn't seem to work . I think I'll try updating my sound drivers as I'm not sure if I recall doing it. I'll post the results soon.

Just to confirm you have checked whats running in the background? Run WoW, or Portal ( at this point it doesn't matter). When it starts to lag, post a screen shot of the performance tab, which can be found in task manager.

Right, thanks for posting those. Your system appears to be running at an acceptable level, so it leads me to think your GPU is to blame. Could you uninstall your Video card driver and re install the latest driver for your card, which i believe is this one.
