I am helping a friend that has a Windows 7 machine that wants to update to Windows 10. It has 2 gigs of Ram and a dual core processor.  When she checks with the Windows 10 Update Requirements, it tells her that her Nvidia GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 card is not compatible with Windows 10.


I am thinking it might be less expensive to purchase a separate video card that will work with Windows 10.  Would sure be less than buying a new computer.  She does want Win 10.


The computer runs fine and I do know that except for the video card the computer does meet the requirements.


Could someone suggest an "inexpensive" video card that would meet the Windows 10 specifications.


Thanks so much for your assistance.
