Recommended driver for nvidia g210

i have brought a new graphics card = nvidia g210
but when i boot (inserting the VGA port in GPU) it stopped at boot screen ... and sddm login screen could not showing.

but booting with internal graphis (inserting the VGA port in motherboard) works fine.
which GPU driver should i install for this ??
or should i exchange my GPU???
i am newbie in sense of graphics card

i am confused ... there are many drivers in repositories...

those drivers are already installed..
