I want to Passthrough my gpu to run borderlands 3 in a windows 10 guest. have intel prime enabled on host, so how would i do it? i think that the prime gpu config is passed through, since i can run all high minecraft windows 10 no lag, but not csgo which runs on host. i just used these for a test. is there a way to bypass games gpu check, or pass it through correctly?

You aren't going to make this happen with VirtualBox. To my knowledge it doesn't even support GPU pass-through.

 

I have a tutorial on how to do this well on GNU/Linux (Debian/Ubuntu).

in your guide, i noticed it said "amd" in requirements. my gpu is nvdia. is that bad? im also using 16.04. ita only borderlands id need this for and willing to go lower settings and low frames if needed. @Windows7ge

The thread explains that nvidia drivers check if they're running in a VM and refuse to work.

1.1.4. - You can use any combination of GPUs AMD or NVIDIA the caveat with NVIDIA GPU's is you have to trick the driver into thinking it's not running in a VM. You can do this by editing the .XML file as described in 11.1 - NVIDIA Driver Won't Install: Device Manager Error Code 43.

 

You may want to upgrade your distro. Most of the steps should persist with 18.04.3(or 4). I haven't tested 19.10 but my expectation is it should still work. May require tweaks.
