grahics upgrade for old system

Hi.
I have an old dell vostro430 PC.
The GPU is currently geforce 310. I want to move to Windows 10 but Nvidia doesn't appear to be updating the GPU drivers to do this. So I though if anyone could tell me of a compatable GPU to my current set up and W10 supported it would be appreciated. My mobo is N1996, and have a 350W power supply the CPU is 2.80 Intel Core i7 64bit and have 8GB ram.
I would like to find a compatible GPU that has W10 support.
I understand that many will say buy a new system, but it is sufficient for my needs. I don't game. I would like to continue with support from Microsoft for the OS and moving to W10 especialy when its free would enable this.
Thanks

I take it you tried the noted workarounds?

(NT) Idid see the workaround but it seemed a bit hit and miss,

(NT) Notice the 750Ti has DDR5. My MOBO has DDR2 is it a problem

Never has been.

The video memory on cards has never had to match what's on the CPU memory system.

In short we have a GPU and it's memory.
And a CPU with it's memory.
Doesn't have to be the same type.
