GPU cards will run Windows 10 64bit?
On Desktops only ?
Warning #1 Do not buy $100+ video cards from CHINA, sold for $25, those are fake cards. My page has zero to do with BITCOIN use of ANY KIND.
If you upgraded say VISTA PC from year 2007 and find your self upgrading to Windows 10, the iGPU will mostly fail in the CORE2 CPU. The cure is simple buy a used $10 GPU card and instal it per the below.
GPU card upgrades are complex! (12 makers) and huge sets of features, ports, speeds, Directx12 support and DRM and textures and cores.
If the W10 loaded PC shows in device manager under DISPLAY ADAPTERS as MBDA driver, this a limphome crippleware driver, from Microsoft (MS) but is very cool with screen not dead sure.
Intel HD iGPU or GMA internal GPU rules.
If you have an old PC most old Intel HD chips (iGPU) have no w10 support for HD3000 and older (1 exception 2500) see the truth here.
There are like 10,000 cards made in last 15 years and many older ones do not work now in W10. (means full support, not crippled drivers like MBDA is...)
First lets do NVIDIA GEFORCE GPU, The Series 7 up are supported but not series 6 and below.
NVIDIA.com (Geforce series 7 and up for W10 support (GT705 is bottom tier series 700)
There are some old cards that work.
See my cheap list below:
I have a Series 8400GS card that turns 5-FPS, a $5 used card and pathetically slow, if not gaming this works. It is cheap 2D card.
Just as good is AMD.com (ATI) Radeon™ etc.. Their list here and is SUPER GOOD , just one page, all you need to know buying used AMD cards, and wanting W10 support.
The winner for low cost AMD GPU card that runs W10 and directx-11, is HD 5450 (DVI , avoid DMS59 version) at the eye popping cost of $8
This 5450 does a whopping 5-FPS, (frame per second) it is a slug, but again is only $8 card. This is only a starting point, so mow 10 lawns and upgrade to a faster card in this list "super good".
Many chips made for cards, long ago ended support for their chip. (if true the card maker can not help you)
That is my answer simple and sweet, which one goes fast enough for you is any ones guess. (to get high FPS gaming? )
But the ratings on all cards are HERE . I have a GTX1650 and love mine, (runs top games too, AAA+)
Buy what you can afford and be happy gaming? (GPU upgrades never end for true gamers)
The card must fit the PCI-express slot, and not hit things inside (dah factor 1 FITS not HIT), and match low profile case or high-profile cases.
It must not overload the PSU nor cause small cases to overheat.(added case fans will allow faster GPU gaming cards)
The top gaming cards have 2 PCIE, PSU aux cables, to the GPU cards rear power jacks 6 pins or 8 or mix. (look first then leap) those jacks and PSU cables match are NOT optional when seen.
PCs that fail to load W10 and not fail are caused by PCs older than year 2007 made (I have 2005 laptop that runs W10-32bit but not 64)
Any PC older than CORE2 Q41 chipset seen here, will fail for iGPU zero intel support, but adding 8400GS card cures that. for $10-$15 bucks.
DirectX support page for top CARDs
Nvidia shows GT730 lowest card with Directx 12.
12 makers of cards. (GPU) PRIME not junk not clones , counterfeits from China. The Top 7 are best.
(the w10 cheap list by me) Nvidia fan me. (AMD is ok) as cheap used as $10 no w10 errors and are office grade 2D use and light photoshop, never are this any kind of Gamers card.

Legacy 101 rule, best post on MS forum here:
"Personally... Don't do it. (highlights by me in red)
Your machine is too old for Win10.
Unless you don't need your machine to perform as well as it
would with Win7 and proper dedicated Win7 drivers, and don't mind having to deal with increasing issues over time.
We're talking about 13/14 yr old hardware from the XP/Vista era here.
As time goes by
and more Win10 version updates are released the lack of compatibility
will only get worse. (<<< I SAY read this 2 times for effect)
Stick with the OS that suits the hardware.... (OEM told you)."
The most confusing thing at Intel.com is the support page states CORE(tm) support, but fail to say, that does NOT include CORE2 Duo or CORE2 QUAD. (very very poorly stated IMO)
It is true as time advances, Microsoft PNP catalogs, drop dead drivers, dead means chip maker ended all support.
A cheap fix for W10 errors on iGPU is here Nvidia 8400GS (about $20) note 3 jack types !! Even run HDMI port to any TV.
version 3. 1-20-2020 (The above is just my opinion )
