Probably. That card is old enough where you'd need CSM enabled in order for the board to boot and some boards don't have that enabled by default. Also, $20 for this card is about $20 too much IMO, that card is basically e-waste at this point.

It should probably work for regular desktop use with Windows 10, though its latest drivers are very old (2015): https://www.amd.com/en/support/graphics/amd-radeon-hd/amd-radeon-hd-6000-series/amd-radeon-hd-6950

 

Windows 11 requires DX 12 support, which the card does not have, and drivers with WDDM 2.0, which it does not have either.

If your cpu has integrated graphics, then just go with that. if not, then this will work as a video output for a bit

It's a lot faster than most iGPUs, I had an HD 6570 (way slower, same gen) as my main GPU until 2018, and now it runs the monitors on my dad's work computer with a 1600, but it's still flawless.  It will work on windows 11 with the old driver.  It doesn;t have the Official (TM) Windows (R) Gold Member's Club (C) Ultimate Triple-Futa-XXXL Edition (TM) support (in the same way that anything pre-covfefe lake doesn't), but it works.

The sign is a subtle joke. The shop is called "Sneed's Feed & Seed", where feed and seed both end in the sound "-eed", thus rhyming with the name of the owner, Sneed. The sign says that the shop was "Formerly Chuck's", implying that the two words beginning with "F" and "S" would have ended with "-uck", rhyming with "Chuck". So, when Chuck owned the shop, it would have been called "Chuck's Feeduck and Seeduck".
