My old bfg 8800gtx graphics has died after 10 years.

I have El Capitan 10.11.2 and have not updated since, a little apprehensive due to losing stability but open to it.

I have tried an EVGA 1050TI 4GB in my system and it works although some issues with the card as I cannot install drivers unless I update to sierra.

The other alternative is to buy a card that is compatible with with El Capitan like evga gt730 2GB which is cheaper and most likely compatible. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00NAS5RT8/?tag=tonymacx86-21

How difficult is it to update to sierra from El Capitan?

Would the second card work straight from installation or would new drivers be required?
