Use live ISO, if you change GPU hardware you must maybe reinstall.

Even if you personally think it is unnecessary.

Have you tested the new GPU within a live installer environment?

Does this GPU have current driver support?

That's not how this forum works. It's your computer which you changed and then you broke the setup, so you will have to do the majority of the work to fix it.

  1. Shutdown PC
  2. Remove Nvidia FX 3500 graphics card
  3. Start PC

I think this is the best option - the card is from 2006 and doesn't have any driver support from Nvidia.

15-year-old GPU? Seriously?

10 FPS in CS:GO, so not sure what the expectation is here. Pretty sure an Intel iGPU will work just as well.

I think it can be used with nouveau.
It's a Curie series, older than Fermi and Tesla.

For the record, I still use a Fermi card on my desktop, addon, with CPU provided Intel GPU, using it with prime when I need extra capabilities, like OBS.

DRI_PRIME=1 <application>

It does the job, without any configuration nightmares :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
