    I am going to update an older PC but I'm getting windows error saying the video card is not compatible (ie. Nvidia has not updated the GS 7 series drivers for Win 10)

    I have searched both Asus (motherboard) and Nvidia web sites for some kind of compatibility chart or listing but can find nothing ?

    When I buy a new card and/or MB...how do I know if it's going to be comparable with 10. Sites like Egghead Software have no info whatever on Win 10 compatibility of offered video cards/MB's compatible with Win 10...etc ??

    Thanks...TiminAz

    It won't be less than Windows 8/7:

    Memory Limits for Windows and Windows Server Releases (Windows)

    As long as you go 64-bit (of course) - 16GB is not even going to make it blink twice.

    [NOTE: I am sure that web page will be updated with the final release of Windows 10.]

    Also - what does 'custom machines' have to do with '16GB of memory'?

    A lot of non-custom systems are sold with that much memory today. I figure your larger concern - with custom machines - would be support for the OS for things like video, video capture, audio, networking, etc.

    How/where can I verify the system specs for windows 10 on existing PC

    I've been looking for a windows 10 compatibility listing for hardware and have found no such list. Microsoft has only given the minimum requirements needed for the hardware to be able to run the new OS. However I did read in another article that if your PC can run Windows 7, the oldest OS I'd go back to for reference, then you should be able to run Windows 10 just fine. To me, this statement is false as I've have been seeing users with GT 600 series graphic cards having a lot of issues, and if you're using multiple monitors or multiple graphics cards, be ready for some hiccups in that area as well. In my opinion, if your PC is, or if your PC has parts, that are more than 5 years old, I'd hold off on upgrading to Windows 10 until drivers and other common issues got sorted out. You'll probably start seeing new parts that are coming out in the next month or so to start saying Windows 10 certified or Windows 10 compatible.
