ATI Radeon Xpress 200 series graphics replacement

I have an old HP DX 2200 Microtower PC with ATI Radeon Xpress 200 series graphics installed. I am running windows 7 now and want to upgrade to Windows 10 but Microsoft says my graphics are not compatible. Can anyone recommend a graphics card? I am not a gammer so it does not have to be high end.
Thanks
Dom

    NVidia 210 is cheap, uses low power, small form factor will fit your case.

    Thank you. I will now check it out on Tiger Direct.
    Thanks again. I am not a guru so I asked the experts and you came through very quickly.

  3. Nvidia GT 210, 610 or Radeon 5450, 6450 or R5 230 will do the job.
  4. for nvidia card isn't it better to at least go for 400 series?
  5. That's if you want DX12. The OP has been chugging along with a Xpress 200 all this time, I think those other cards will be fine (DX11 except the 210).
  6. I don't know what DX11 or DX12 is but that is neither here nor there. I looked at the NVidia 210 and it was only about $30. That is fine if it will do the job. When I looked at the card on Tiger it did not say anything about windows 10 but I suspect the manufacturer will have the right drivers available soon or am I wrong?
  7. I don't know if Nvidia still supports that card, you would be better off with a 610 or Radeon 6450.

  8. just doing some checks for a few minute ago. G210 should at work with win 10 using legacy driver from nvidia.
  9. I'd still go with a 610 or 6450 for more modern video acceleration.
  10. OK Guys, i am going to go with this:
    Sapphire 100322L Radeon HD 6450 Video Card - 1GB, GDDR3, PCI-Express 2.0 (x16), DVI, HDMI, VGA, DirectX 11, Single-Slot, Low Profile.
    I really do want to thank you for all your input. I was lost and now I have a direction to proceed. I am going to order the card now. Thank you so much for all your help.

  11. i forgot to mention. if you're going with AMD 5k and 6k series make sure your mobo have PCI-E 2.0.

    According to the documentation it shows a PCIE1X1 and a PCIE16X1 Nothing in the documentation about 2.0 however so I am not sure if the card will work. Anyway, it is ordered and if does not fit the slots on the mother board I will have to go back to the drawing board.

  13. The thing is all AMD 6k series (and some of 5k series) use PCI-E 2.1 standard on the card. It is have known conflict with PCI-E version 1 (1.0,1.1). It is fixable by updating mobo BIOS but some old mobo did not have that fixed because their support have been dropped prior to PCI-E 2.1 spec being used. In this case there is no choice to opt for cards with PCI-E 2.0 or 3.0 (so far there is no such case being reported with PCI-E 3.0 Sso it is safe to assume card with PCI-E 3.0 standard will have no problem working with PCI-E ver 1 slot)
  14. Update - The new card arrived today. Radeon HD 6450. I installed the card and the drivers no problem. Updated the driver again no problem. Went to install Windows 10 and now I got a new error.

    0xc900101-ox40017 The installation failed in the second boot phase with an error during boot operation. I have to look into this one to see what it means. Anyway, it did get past the video card where it failed before.
  15. Did you manually install the driver or windows updates service are the one did it?
