    Does the B450M have fTPM? Version 2.0? I'd guess so. Your CPU is on the Win11 supported list, so you could "upgrade" to 11, although I doubt that it would improve your Windows experience.

    The 710 cards are extremely low-end. The Quadro K620 is a bit better than the ancient (2008 launch) GTX 260. That may be the best choice if you're trying to minimize expense.
