Not 100% sure Win 10 will work with your graphics

What would I have to do to make it work with my graphics?  A different graphics card?

If it doesn't work with Win10 a new graphics card would fix the problem.  Odds are that it would work.  Your version of DxDiag just doesn't seem to test for the Driver Mode.

Ok, so I would need to install the new adapter card, hard drive and Windows 10 and if I get no graphics, I'd have to install a new graphics card?  Can you tell me which graphics card I'd need to buy in that event?  I'd like to get a bookmark saved to my notepad so I'd be able to order it if I have to.

Amazon has:

 

MSI Gaming GeForce GT 710 2GB GDRR3 64-bit HDCP Support DirectX 12 OpenGL 4.5 Single Fan Low Profile Graphics Card (GT 710 2GD3 LP)

 

for $46.17

 

May not be the cheapest or the best but it has a 4.5 star rating and it works on Win 10 32/64 and fits in a PCI Express x16 slot.

It's great!  Thanks very much.  I found it at Amazon.  It'll cost me just a little over $200.00 to update my pc to Windows 10 and that's a good deal.  I couldn't have done it without you so I really appreciate it.  It'll be like have a whole new computer.  I have to wait until around October 5th to buy the items.  I'll let you know how it turns out.

 

I attached a picture of my computer after I got everything installed back in 2009.  I didn't do a clean job with the cables and wires but it worked.

Just out of curiosity why do you need so many drives?  One thing that Win 10 will bring is a much larger drive capacity - up to 16 TB for the 64 bit version.

I just had one more thought.  Does your BIOS offer UEFI or GPT in addition to the old MBR?  That might be a deal breaker for Win 10 if it doesn't
