    I want to use Windows 10 but my graphics card can't support it. What should I upgrade to. I also want to play games on it.

    This pretty much.
    The GTX 970 is a good choice if you can afford it. Otherwise GTX 960 or some similarly priced AMD card will do okay.

    GTX 970 +1
    I think I'd go for a R9 380 over a GTX 960.

    +1 for any of those suggestions. Just make sure you get a 4GB version, they'll last you longer as games start to require more VRAM for high res textures

    this is a 10+ year old motherboard and cpu most likely
    Why are people suggesting modern high power graphics cards?

    The card will bottleneck instantly
    I'm guessing the machine only shipped with some cheap 250w psu on top of that

    Your gonna have get a new machine/build one/or settle for a very low end more modern gpu that at least supports win10

    i bought a full PC with AMD 8320 , r7 260x 8 gig ram , 60 gig SSD 1TB HDD , DVD drive , half decent case.. for the price i paid for my sons GTX970 . :)

    all depends what yr budget is , you may have enough to find a decent low to mid gaming machine... :)
