I don't work for Microsoft and (as it says down at the bottom of the page) this forum is not legally affiliated with Microsoft. Hence, if you wish to put your point across to Microsoft, as you're entirely entitled to do, I would suggest contacting them directly.
Having said that, the onus is on hardware manufacturers who produce drivers for a given OS to ensure that those drivers work efficiently. I wouldn't expect anyone to "buy new to replace a card that has nothing wrong with it", but I would expect a "reputable brand" to invest the time and effort to support their customers who've moved over to a 64-bit platform. You can see that trend right here - we're at the point where 64-bit is probably just as common as 32-bit on this forum. It is hard to understand why a "reputable brand" would short-change a large and growing percentage of their customer base, unless they are the ones trying to force you to "buy new".
